Editors' Review

+
This powerhouse FTP client takes some getting used to, but you'll be glad you did. 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 on up. It's also free for personal use and an incredible bargain.

"fantastic program"

October 31, 2006  |  By kristiforpresident

 |  Version: SmartFTP Client (x86) 2.0.999.16

Pros

For nearly 4 months now I have used SmartFTP without any glitches or problems. It's easy to learn and easy to use. I would recommend it to anyone who's looking for a good FTP program. The Windows Explorer-like interface makes it less intimidating for users who are new to the realm of FTP uploading or are generally afraid of the deeper realm of computer usage.

Cons

The interface, because of its similarity to Windows, ticks me off sometimes but only for minor things like automatically making the file name column too small to read anything. But that's all I can think of.

"Multiple simultaneous uploads/downloads with transfer queue"

October 30, 2006  |  By subpixel

 |  Version: SmartFTP Client (x86) 2.0.999.16

Pros

Uploading many small files to a distant server with high latency is extremely painful using FTP... unless you happen to be able to have a bunch running simultaneously! The transfer queue allows this, as well as having connections to multiple servers at the same time.

Cons

Having said that, the transfer queue is a little fiddly to use - it would be great if dragging stuff from source to destination would automatically go via the queue.

"One simple, visual interface to transfer multiple files"

October 17, 2006  |  By cptdrinian

 |  Version: SmartFTP Client (x86) 2.0.999.16

Pros

This is a great, visually appealing, easy to use, drag-and-drop, FTP utility. Sessions are easy to initiate, window settings can be set and saved, and it is very intuitive. Doesn't take a programmer mentality to figure out how to use or configure it.

Cons

None encountered yet. Just be sure to download the 32-bit version unless you're running a 64-bit OS.

"best free ftp on the web A+"

October 12, 2006  |  By marciahorn

 |  Version: SmartFTP Client (x86) 2.0.999.16

Pros

This ftp is very user friendly- it's easy to tell your way around the program, there are enough windows to show your server and your desktop (it's always annoying when you can't tell what goes where, or what is happening.)I give it an A+
