"fine application, but..."
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Ok, this really does pack a lot of features and is quite easy to use, but the price seems really out of line considering there are alternatives which, for most users, will perform at least as well. The only advantage this has over CrushFTP is that it is indeed very much less resource heavy, but if you haven't got a lot of concurrent users, this won't be a problem and in terms of features and ease of use they are virtually equal. If what you're really looking for is a very thorough web interface, you should check out hotscripts.com where you will find several incredibly full featured and flexible perl cgi scripts you can use with your http server, and even include various security and user and directory control features, without the need to run another server on additional ports. One of these could easily be used in conjuntion with a standard UNIX FTP server, for example Pure-FTP which has at least two different and easy to use GUI frontends available for the Mac. As I said, this is great software but just way too much money - even without mentioning the strangely rigid licensing scheme tied not just to concurrent connections, but also to user accounts.
