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.

"The Cost Is For 1 Year Only!"

February 13, 2012  |  By smokemup2

 |  Version: SmartFTP Client (32-bit) 4.0.1234


It works well, but if you like 'free', Core FTP LE is just as good if not better.


License good for only 1-year, then you can no longer start the client without paying for another year.


I decided I've paid these people enough and found Core FTP LE. I couldn't be happier.

"Smarter than the Average FTP Client..."

February 09, 2012  |  By JPKirkpatrick

 |  Version: SmartFTP Client (32-bit) 4.0.1234


Easy to use intuitive interface; Multiple "workers" (channels) to upload faster; Good detail on files being uploaded.


Limited documentation; No explanation of some of it's features, i.e., "Workers".


SmartFTP is a very well written FTP Client program that could be made much better if the User Documentation/Help file was better written. It has a very easy to use interface, but some of it's great features have little explanation of what they are or how they work. I learned of them by 'experimenting' with the various control features.
SmartFTP works better than almost all others and much better than my long-time favorite, WS FTP (IPSwitch).
You would not go wrong in using this program!
