Editors' Review

Net Transport is a powerful, comprehensive download management program. It comes with an FTP client called "FTP Transport," so you can use it to upload material to the Internet too. It does a lot, so much that it can overwhelm users.

Net Transport has a well-designed interface that is attractive and clean. The program and its companion FTP client have several useful features, such as handy options for both downloading and uploading. The trouble with Net Transport is figuring out how to use it. We've used a few FTP programs and downloaded a bit of software and files in our time, but we couldn't figure out how to get started with this program. When you select Help from the drop-down menu, the program takes you to the manufacturer's Web page. There are rudimentary instructions there about how to use Net Transport, but we didn't find them especially helpful and we wish that the program offered some kind of user's manual, step-by-step guide, or FAQ that could answer some questions. The instructions on the Web site are geared toward more advanced users, and something is needed for users who are unfamiliar with this type of application. Even experienced users find they need help with this confusing program.

This is a 30-day trial version of the software. If you're a pro downloader who's looking for a powerful download manager, Net Transport is a good option. If you're new to FTP and downloading, you may want to look around for an easier solution.

    "excellent results-- poor instructins"

    April 27, 2010   |   By 55charile

    Version: Net Transport 2.92 build 540

    Pros

    Can locate URLs that are hidden and works with all the protocols.

    Cons

    Lousy, almost no instructins.

    Summary

    I found support excellent. I sent in a bug report and within 24 hours was reponded and they fixed within 48 hours.

    They need a manual. Figuring out how to use the program is not easy, but it has features that no other program can provide.

    "Good product, poor support"

    April 10, 2010   |   By itzumee

    Version: Net Transport 2.92 build 540

    Pros

    Works well and is reliable, I purchased it back in 2005...

    Cons

    ...but with the latest version my key doesn't work and all emails to the author/purchasing site have been ignored

    Summary

    Worth buying but don't expect support hence only 3 stars, otherwise would be 5

    "Sweet Program for Legal MMS Protocol Downloads"

    November 24, 2008   |   By mostimport

    Version: Net Transport 2.72 build 435

    Pros

    Successfully catches wmv filenames on the MMS protocol.
    Successfully *downloads* said videos to your PC HDD.
    Provides for sites requiring Referer URL.
    Provides for sites requiring Username/Password combination.

    Cons

    You essentially can't multitask ? at least not if you only have 224 MB of RAM and a 1.7 GHz processor ? because it uses all your system resources. But it's worth it, because it does it's job.

    Summary

    You don't have to sit through the whole video to "record" it like other programs make you do (Replay Media Catcher, e.g.); you download it straightaway like normal and it's done. Btw, one thing the preview video for RMC reinforced was how it *is* legal to acquire streaming content for your PC using apps designed for that purpose.

    It will botch your downloaded files at the very end if you only use one thread, turning them into a file of less than 1 MB after it just downloaded 10 or 100 times that for that file. I use 3 threads and no problems do I have with that.

    Great "preferential" price they offer you of $25 when you get the trial version. The best software always has a modest price tag.

    It works! I tried StreamDown and SDP Downloader and they didn't work for me. Even when I first tried Net Transport, I didn't think it was working because there was a small popup/dialog box I had to answer/close first before it would do what I wanted. But once I did so, this immediately worked.

    You do have to press "Start" each time you open the program for the URL Sniffer to catch the media files, but that's cool.

    I use Getright for everything else, so this is a nice partner for it. If you pay for content on a site, this program enables you to acquire that content legally, though the site may on the surface only offer streams. Just play by the rules is how I go about it. If a site tells me they don't allow downloading of their streams, I would respect that. But if not, and it is available for download on a site you pay for, this program is good to get what you paid for if you want to view it later.

    If I need it past the trial period, I will certainly buy. Thanks Xi.
