Editors' Review


This powerhouse FTP client takes some getting used to, but you'll be glad you gave it a chance. Don't be alarmed by the cramped, multipane Windows Explorer-like interface; you can customize the toolbars and windowpanes however you like.

With the Local Browser window visible, SmartFTP supports drag-and-drop transfers like those on basic FTP clients. But its real power lies deeper within its option menus, where you'll find CHMOD remote file-attribute modification, background file transfers, multiple FTP connections, passive-mode transfers, site-to-site transfers (FXP), and connections via proxy or SSL. Using the Global Queue window, you even can schedule downloads or uploads to more than one server.

SmartFTP may overwhelm beginners, but it's a natural for intermediates and up.

"Cheating Company"

September 14, 2016  |  By cnnighthood

 |  Version: SmartFTP Client (32-bit) 6.0.2152.0


Functionality is good until they decided to cheat more money out of me.


First time I paid for professional license then they deactivated the scheduling functionality and ask me to pay for ultimate license.
Paid the ultimate license then after 1 year deactivated my license and the "friendly" customer support ask me to pay again despite my maintenance still valid, after this no more response from them...


Too late for me to stumble upon this review and learned it the hard way.
Do not buy from this unscrupulous company!

"Just like the other reviewer say -- RIP OFF"

Works until you have to download it again.


You buy a "perpetual" license. But as soon as a new version comes out, you can't download the version you PAID for, meaning it is worthless.

It was even worse in my situation. I had a minor annoyance (an extra click) that I asked support about. They told me it had been fixed in the new version, NOT TELLING ME THAT I'D HAVE TO PAY AGAIN. With my old version gone, there is no way to download it again.

I've moved to FileZilla -- just as good, completely free, open source (no adware, etc) and well-supported.


Just like the other reviewers have said, sleazy business practices imho. Avoid at all costs.

"Rip off - steal your money"

Worked OK until disactivated


It only works for one year then is disactivated, so it basically costs 40 dollars per year! Rip off when you consider there are good free ones out there. I paid to have a more solid application, but thought the license was perpetual and just support would run out, not the application license ran out!


You only get ones years use then need to keep paying annual subscription to use.

"Bad Service"

Great software and never had any problems using it, until now.


If your maintenance license expires, never expect to install this software again without paying to extend it. You will be unable to download the previous version from their site and their support will ignore your request pointing you to the buy button again.


Don't bother buying it. You pay for a service, not a product. Sadly this is a big let down considering this software is great otherwise.
