SmartFTP is one of the most widely used FTP clients worldwide. Its main function, allows to transfer files through Internet servers using the File-Transfer-Protocol (FTP). This program is particularly useful for webmaster's tasks updating web-sites or common users who need to send files to remote servers; for example, sending a backup-set to a distant location for security purposes.
It also offers the highest safety standards, supporting FTPS, SFTP and SSH. This feature allows you to transfer sensitive information with absolute security that communication cannot be interfered by hackers.
The program's operation is very intuitive, thanks to its elegant design, which is absolutely predictable. In fact, users with no previous experience can start using it once installed. The steps to send files are very simple.
First, you need to set a target server, required to create a communication profile by entering connection's name, address (IP or Domain-name), password, and protocol; which must be selected from a list that contains FTP as default, and it follows with FTPS, SFTP and SSH.
Once the target server is connected, it is possible to browse through its directories, listing files and even seeing a thumbnail or previewing them. The supported formats are images and text files. It is an useful feature that allows to preview files before transferring them. In addition, the program enables to edit text files directly from the remote server.
The file transfer operations can be performed easily using the Microsoft Windows Explorer, simply dragging and dropping files between locations. Moreover, SmartFTP includes a scheduler which allows to synchronize local and remote folders. Using the synchronizing function, it is possible to have two mirror folders. In this situation, the program will monitor the origin and destination, transferring the modified files.
The file-transfer operations are monitored by the software, and in case of disconnection, the program can perform the reconnection, resuming the aborted transfer jobs. It can check all files transferred via CRC algorithm, which calculates the hash values of both the source file and destination, ensuring the successful transfer.
Finally, we recommend SmartFTP as one of the best FTP clients on the market. It includes the professional functions required to transfer files in a secure way via the Internet.
