FTP client for Windows 2000/XP/2003/VISTA/2008/7/2008R2 ProFTP. Allows you to transfer files between your PC and 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.
Now FTP connections may be done through existing SSH connection. In FTP's "Passive" mode the "Dynamic Forwarding", the new Telnet/SSH feature, may be used. In FTP's "non-Passive", default, mode the usual Telnet/SSH Forwarding feature may be used. You must use SSHPro software by Labtam to be able to use this feature. XSecurePro software package has this feature as standard.
