Editors' Review

+

If you're a Web designer or Net content producer, your FTP program has to be rock-solid. This one fits the bill. In our testing, Core FTP Pro proved to be one of the most feature-packed and convenient FTP tools on the market. Its straightforward interface allows you to switch quickly among sites, and advanced features make it a snap to compare and synchronize local and remote directories.

The program lets you download or upload multiple files from several servers simultaneously and schedule transfers, and it supports secure SSL data flows. It has a few quirks, such as an inability to open two sites within one program window, or to browse a site's directory without pausing active downloads. However, we recommend the program to computer users who need to manage large Web sites.

"Doesn't do what I need it to. Fine for simple tasks!"

April 13, 2014  |  By jmc452

 |  Version: Core FTP Pro 2.2.1796

Pros

I know this isn't fair, but compared to my old FTP (doesn't work with Win7 or 8 or I wouldn't be look for a new program), I can't think of any pros.

Cons

Major con is it doesn't look in folders when it does a compare. When I looked in each folder it thought there was something different about every single photo because the photo on my hard drive was dated the day I took it and the photo on the FTP site was dated the date I uploaded it. Almost never the same day and certainly not the same second. Even files that I manually uploaded, were several seconds off and compare said they were different.

Summary

If it can do the things I need, than it's too complicated for the average, individual site administrator to configure. If it can't it is certainly not worth paying for.

"scheduled tasks not supported in win7"

March 09, 2010  |  By rcglass1

 |  Version: Core FTP Pro 2.1 build 1643

Pros

awesome program except below

Cons

does not support tasks in win7.

Summary

when you create a list of tasks, the next time you log in the list is not present though tasks are running you can not edit them or delete them. they are out of control. it's not disclosed on their website. they would not honor under warranty. they would not fix under service plan. there is no eta for solution as of 3/9/10. Mediocre rating because task are extremely important to us.

"Had problems with remote directory listings"

October 12, 2007  |  By bwebbe

 |  Version: Core FTP Pro 2.0.1522

Pros

GUI was easy enough to work with, intuitive. Features set was good. Program was stable. Installation was smooth.

Cons

In working with some ftp sites, had difficulty getting a remote directory listing when connecting. (other ftp clients worked with no tweaking). Ended up having to move to another client for this reason.

"On the tin"

July 04, 2007  |  By robinwickens2422

 |  Version: Core FTP Pro 1.3c.1447.6

Pros

At last, an ftp programme that does what it says on the tin!

I am now able to upload and download my sites without all the rubbish that Frontpage dumps on the server.

Cuts out half of the server space required and half the time that it takes to upload sites. Cuts down on bandwidth too if that is an issue.

"Gets the job done."

July 15, 2006  |  By AbnoticReviews

 |  Version: Core FTP Pro 1.3c.1447.6

Pros

Does exactly what it's made to do. It hasn't crashed once and doesn't hog up computer resources. It is simply the only FTP software you will need. The trial is also for 45 days to really let you get a feel of the software. An FTP account is usually provided by a web hosting service. It is the best way to update a website and its content. It is also a very good way to upload or download multiple files to or from your FTP account. You can get a free FTP account at 0catch, cafe150, 250free, etc.

Cons

None.

"Core ftp does the job and is reasonably priced too!"

March 31, 2006  |  By cmgovier

 |  Version: Core FTP Pro 1.3c.1447.3

Pros

This is a really good ftp client program. I have been using it for several small web sites and find is very easy to use. It hardly took me any time to get my site set up and the files transferred. It has all the features that I need including a sync and compare function. I have used other ftp programs at my place of employment but when I needed one for my own use, I decided to give Core a try. I am happy I did! Another thing I really like about it, is you get free updates and support instead of having to pay every year a "subscription" fee like the other two popular ftp programs. Oh, did I mention it is a reasonable cost.

Cons

The text size in the program is a bit small. Must have been coded by some young engineers.

"Crashed on first use"

September 05, 2005  |  By neochance

 |  Version: Core FTP Pro 1.3 build 1423.01

Pros

I've used this client in the past. It preformed fairly well.

Cons

It crashed on the very first time I to upload some pictures to my website. This version is unstable and unacceptable for use as a ftp client. There are too many other clients out there that work out of the box. I'm not going to waste my time troubleshooting this one. I recommend going with SmartFTP.
