    "Does the job well, easy to use, responsive support."

    September 20, 2011   |   By frederickmc

    Version: FtpVC 2.6

    Pros

    Supports both Windows and *nix servers. Compare current and past versions of files. Supports file permissions and symlinks on *nix servers. Many understandable options and settings.

    Cons

    On a *nix server in a directory with lots of symlinked files, it is slow to show the directory listing. In general, in showing the remote directory listings, it isn't as fast as a good ftp client, but it is looking at file status also, so understood.

    Summary

    When I first tried FtpVC it didn't differentiate between regular and symlinked files on *nix servers. And you obviously couldn't tell it to not show symlinks in the directory listings. Also, it uploaded all files with 644 permissions, which is bad for cgi files. When I pointed these things out to them, they made necessary changes and additions to the program to cover the issues. Their quick response and the fact that they even id it really impressed me.

    When you change to a different directory it isn't real fast in showing the listing, especially if there are a lot of symlinks. But, since it is checking the status of each files this is understandable.

    When reading about version control programs such as git and Subversion, I got lost many times. Not so with FtpVC. It is easy to use and understand. It doesn't have all the options of git, such as merging files and branches. But, unless you really need that, this is a great product.

    You can easily view the differences between your local version of a file and the version on the server, with their other great product, ExamDiff. The free version of ExamDiff is included in FtpVC. However, you can tell it to use whatever comparison program you want. You can also tell it what program to use to edit a file.
