ProFTP Version 2.5 - FTP client

Date: December 4, 2005

Labtam is pleased to present a new software version for ProFTP now - Version 2.5. It is our second major release for the 2005 year.

ProFTP is a file transfer program which allows you to transfer files between your PC and a remote computer using the ARPANET standard File Transfer Protocol. The program can transfer files in two different format types: ASCII format is used for text files, and Binary format is used for image files.

FTP must run on a machine that is configured for TCP/IP network communication or Internet access. Access can be gained through Winsock and the use of any dial-up provider, a Remote Access Server (RAS), or a direct connection via a local area network that supports TCP/IP. In order for FTP to communicate with a remote computer, that computer must have a server implementation of FTP (FTP server based on TCP/IP transports).

You can be connected to only one remote computer at a time during a FTP session. However, you can run multiple FTP sessions (FTP clients) simultaneously in separate windows, with each session connected to a different host.

New Features on this release include:

1. Comsetup:
- implemented the "Disable Log Output" setting to prevent attempts to write in the ".out" and ".ini" files from any of the package's facility

2. Ping (renovated):
- implemented the IPv6 support (in both the ICMP and TCP modes)
- TCP ping is allowed to standard TCP/IP echo port 7 as well as to any other TCP port entered
- allows to scan the LAN

3. FTP:
- the latest local working directory is activated when selecting profile
- implemented the FXP mode to copy files between two remote FTP servers

4. Telnet:
- implemented the IPv6 support

The following bugs have been fixed:

1. Ping (renovated):
- stopped the usage of raw sockets. The standard MS Windows ICMP interface is used instead to allow non-admin users to use ping

2. FTP:
- timer stops after 10800 ticks
- reget shows bytes already copied
- drag & drop features for the MVS system

Undocumented Features:

1. Comsetup:
- implemented the "Disable Log Output" setting to prevent attempts to write in the ".out" and ".ini" files from any package's facility

2. Ping (renovated):
- the "*" wild card symbol may be used once in the IP address (in both IPv4 and/or IPv6 cases) to scan 256 hosts in the LAN. Examples of correct IP addresses: "192.168.0.*", "fe80::250:baff:fef2:*42%4"

3. Ftp:
- to enter in the FXP mode, the "Server"->"FXP/FTP Connect" menu item must be chosen to log on the second remote host after the usual FTP log on the first host was completed. After this the left FTP'spane will represent the 2nd remote FTP server

Known problems:

- printers on the remote MS Windows NT 4 hosts are unavailable from the local host under MS Windows NT 4

2.Telnet - the followed features not yet implemented:
- the named "profiles" (pre-set sessions)
- saved telnet-screens ("back buffer") may be written to a file

The programs associated in this package may send and/or receive broadcast IP requests. Since such packets cannot cross the nearest firewall/gateway/router, please be sure that these IP requests are invisible from outside your network. We assume that such behavior cannot be considered as "Hacking" or "Trojan horse's action".
