Editors' Review

+
It's no fun when your FTP client crashes before the party's even begun. Though this lightweight program has all the bells and whistles required of a basic FTP client, it's plagued with stability issues. Fastream NetFile is probably best suited to managing small sites, as it has no automation options, such as scheduling or macros. It also doesn't support advanced FTP features, such as allowing secure transfers or automatically synchronizing remote and local directories. On the positive side, it's easy to flip from tab to tab when working with multiple FTP sites and downloading multiple files at once. The program automatically caches directories so browsing FTP sites is superfast. However, we weren't big fans of the dialog windows that popped up for each transfer, and the screen flickers while directories refreshed frankly made us a bit nervous. Fastream isn't the most stable friend; during testing, we were kicked off connections a handful of times, and had to struggle with even more error messages. The program crashed several times. If you don't mind the unpredictablity, this freeware program might suffice for the occasional FTP transfer.

    "Not bad for a "lite" client!"

    July 11, 2007   |   By osmana2005

    Version: Fastream NetFile FTP Client 6.0

    Pros

    Rapid response times, a very intuitive GUI.

    Cons

    Didn't like the local-view. Not only is it just a windows explorer pane (the ability to add specific directories to a toolbar or something for fast access would have been nice), but it doesn't allow thumbnail view. A major pain when uploading from a large /images/ dir!!!

    "unbeatable"

    May 11, 2007   |   By 5280_Busa

    Version: Fastream NetFile FTP Client 6.0

    Pros

    After downloading and installing countless FTP clients, I go sick of having to uninstall them when the trial was up..some of them wanted $29+ which is a ripoff. This client is super easy to use, intuitive, and free. Thanks to Fastream for a great product.

    Cons

    None

    "Crashed on my first file download"

    October 03, 2006   |   By QuickLook

    Version: Fastream NetFile FTP Client 6.0

    Pros

    Easy to use

    Intuitive enough interface

    Free

    Cons

    It got hung up on downloading files.

    Later I learned I don’t even need a separate FTP Client Windows File Manger handles that seamlessly.

    "Good FTP for free"

    January 14, 2006   |   By ScourgeXanvor

    Version: Fastream NetFile FTP Client 6.0

    Pros

    Can move files between the remote host and your machine using drag and drop, menus, or right-clicking. Very fast on XP.

    Cons

    If your connection times out, you have to click the disconnect button, then re-log in and go through the remote directories again. On the FTP program I used to use for Win98, it would automatically log you back in and put you in the directory you were in.
