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.

"WORST CUSTOMER SUPPORT POSSIBLE"

May 21, 2015  |  By Xenon Inc.

 |  Version: SmartFTP Client (64-bit) 4.1.1336

Pros

Very nice software, frequent updates.

Cons

Customer support is basically anti-customer.

Summary

Like pretty much all of the previous comments, to say the customer support is dismissive, would be an understatement.

Paid customer: minimum $40 a year bill to stay "subscribed" to having this software work. If you accidentally take an update past your expiration, forget it, they won't provide you with the last working version even when directly asked, whether in their forums or directly through their email customer support. The money you spent is literally ... GONE. No more working FTP client.

Asking for support usually ends up in being ignored.

I would highly recommend NOBODY PAY for this software, no matter how much you like it. Trust me, you'll end up regretting it at some point later. Really, the BBB should be looking into this place.

Used to be free and had good features. Now it's paid only.

RIP OFF

"Can't recommend SmartFTP"

April 02, 2015  |  By steveives

 |  Version: SmartFTP Client (64-bit) 4.1.1336

Pros

Works pretty well with Unix and Linux FTP servers. Nice UI.

Cons

Doesn't work at all well with OpenVMS FTP servers. Also the vendors licensing policy sucks; if you don't continue paying annual license fees then after a while they cut you off and even the version that you originally paid for stops working! Also they don't respond to questions unless you are currently paid up. Basically it's keep paying or they don't want to know you! Pretty good product, but terrible business practices.

"Avoid The Con!!!!"

March 11, 2015  |  By whippm

 |  Version: SmartFTP Client (64-bit) 4.1.1336

Pros

Use Cuteftp

Cons

SmartFTP will not sell you a perpetual license. They claim to, but when your maintenance program runs out, your license will mysteriously stop working and their only suggestion is to get the latest version, which requires you renew you maintenance program. This is a subscription service, PERIOD!! So don't let them fool you to thinking you have a perpetual license!!

"Avoid at all cost - no way to uninstall it"

January 28, 2014  |  By jeff_zzz

 |  Version: SmartFTP Client (64-bit) 4.1.1336

Pros

Good tool, if you want to pay for it.
There are good free tools out there thou.

Cons

You cannot uninstall 64-bit version. They do not include uninstall utility - so better to avoid that soft.

Summary

You cannot uninstall 64-bit version. They do not include uninstall utility - so better to avoid that soft.
