When you check out the
online demonstration of the
FTP applet you will be able to get
a closer look at it's features. The same feature set is available in the standalone client as well.
- Directory Management
You can add, remove, rename and change the permissions of directories and files that they
may contain. A menu that clicks up on right click makes these features even easier to use.
- Recursive folder upload/download
- You can use the FTP Applet for recursively uploading (or downloading) folders, subfolders and any
files that they may contain.
- Progress Monitor
The popup progress monitor helps you easily keep track of the files that are being
- Resumable Uploads and Downloads
If a data transfer is interrupted for whatever reason you have the option of resuming the transfer from the point where it was left off.
When files with identical names are encountered there are three options alltogether, you can choose to either overwrite the file, ignore it or assume that it was a file that was partially transferred and attempt to upload or download the rest of the data
- Menubar and Toolbar
- The applet is equipped with both a menubar and a toolbar (either of which can be switched off or hidden) which make it easy to control the behaviour of the applet
- Multi Threaded
- You can carry out several uploads and downloads concurrently thanks to the multithreaded
nature of our applet. Even while these file transfers are in progress you can
perform other tasks such as working with directories or changing file permissions.
- Multi-column sort
- You can sort the list of files by their names, sizes, modified dates or by the type
(folder or file) in either ascending or descending order
- Multiple Views
If the files that you are working with happen to have very lengthy names you
will find the two column display to be very convinient. If on the other hand you wish to see
more information about the file you can use the detailed view. You can switch between these views at any time even
when a file transfer is in progress.
- Dynamically switch between Active and Passive Mode
- FTP protocol has two different methods for data transfer called active and passive mode.
With firewall administrators becoming more and more nervous it's quite common nowadays to find
that either one of these transfer modes may be blocked at a given location. In such cases the
applet will switch between active and passive modes to try to determine which method may be
