From NCH Software:
Classic FTP Plus for Mac is an easy to use ftp client to view, manage, edit, upload, download and delete files from a remote server or network. As the name suggests, Classic FTP has been specifically designed to look and feel like a typical ftp software client. While offering all the same features as other ftp clients, Classic FTP is perfect for both advanced and novice website administrators. Complete with useful features like "Mirror and Upload" to synchrozinze local and remote files, and synchronized navigation to reduce the risk of uploading files to the wrong folder.
After my FTP program (CuteFTP) died on upgrading my Mac, I opted for Classic FTP which looks and runs in a similar fashion.
Classic FTP needs quite a bit of computer knowledge to find files & folders I found but as I have only used it twice I can't claim expert knowledge
Can't think of a good thing about it other than it downloaded easily! Ugh!
First attempt to use it was fine. Couple weeks later I tried again and nothing. Bought the program and all it does is bounce in the dock. Never launches. Support tried to help to no avail. I deleted it using AppCleaner.
Stay away from this program. There are better ones available - even cheap or nearly free ones like Courier (mozilla app). In fact I heartily recommend Courier!
Without any previous warning at installation, after 14 days product stopped working - asks to purchase license but advertised as FREE on both download.com and also on apple's website. I may have decided to pay if they would have not tried to hide!
Were you able to try Fling - Automatic FTP upload software from NCH Software? The download URL is: http://www.nch.com.au/components/flsetup.exe. Also, were you able to contact support at http://www.nchsoftware.com/support/index.html or email@example.com?
Once I got it to work,it was fine, although not as intuitive as mac programs usually are.I had to seek help from more knowledgeable persons as the help supplied wasn't helpful at all.
No help under the help menu. Defaulted to Mac Classic which isn't on my computer! Being a total novice I didn't know what it was supposed to do or how it was supposed to work, so I had big problems getting started.
I would like this product to come with either an online manual, or better still, a pdf manual that can be printed out. The help supplied assumed prior knowledge of the program or at least prior knowledge of FTP clients.As a complete novice, it was like stumbling around in the dark until I found someone who knew what to do to get started. After that it was a doddle. So better help would be my only wish - perhaps one of the members of the Classic Community could put something together and they could assume that the person they are writing for knows nothing about FTP clients.
Classic FTP is a basic FTP client. It does have a manual available in the help menu or you can contact support through http://www.nch.com.au/support/index.html. However, Fling offers more functionality and can be downloaded at http://www.nch.com.au/components/flsetup.exe.
I can't see what more you can demand of an FTP client, but now I am not a very experienced user when It comes to writing HTML-code and uploading the files. In spite of that, even I succeeded to get it working at the first attempt.
A great piece of work and I can't find any reason to complain about the performance of Classic FTP.
