ProFtp is a non complicated product for integrating the Microsoft Windows
and TCP/IP network environments. ProFtp is an inexpensive but effective way
to transform a standard PC running under MS Windows Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 and Server 2003/2008/2008R2
into a multi-function terminal. Being based on the TCP/IP open standards,
the package integrates a PC into an interoperable computer network. The
network of dissimilar computers and operating systems becomes perfectly
transparent to you. ProFtp enables you to work on your PC's screen with
several applications executed simultaneously on various network nodes. As a
result, a heterogeneous network appears to you as a unified large computer
system arranged directly on your desktop.
By using the industry standard Secure Shell (SSH1/SSH2) protocol for remote
logins, intended to provide secure encrypted communications between two
untrusted hosts over an insecure network, the package brings you typical
remote system administrating, file transferring, and access to corporate
resources over the Internet. With its SSH1/SSH2 features support, the
package brings Security to your PCs, company LAN/WAN, or Intranet.
The FTP is a file transfer program that 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 binary
The FTP also allows you to perform some basic file and directory management
operations, such as deleting, copying, and renaming.
The ProFtp's 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 the
FTP to communicate with a remote computer, that computer must have a server
implementation of FTP (FTP server based on the TCP/IP transports).
FTP operations may be done either by direct insecure access to a remote host
or through one of the established SSH1/SSH2 protocol connections as well.
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. Now you can use FXP mode to transfer files between two remote computers.
Pro FTP has a rich set of features easy to use download and upload files
with this simple program. You can copy either a directory or selected file
from a remote host to your computer.
