FTP Navigator is a Windows-based Internet application
that facilitates FTP transfer by displaying information about the files
and directory structure of a remote system in a browsing screen. This allows
you to utilize the capabilities of FTP without having to know all the details.
Its side-by-side view allows you to use it to apply simple file management
both locally and remotely. FTP Navigator gives Internet users the
ability to quickly upload, download, delete and rename files; to
create and to delete directories on an FTP - server.
The program lets you upload and download data
or delete one or more files, including whole folders along with subdirectories.
The transfer interface window shows what percentage of files has already
been uploaded or downloaded. It can also automatically resume and
complete file transfers, which for some reason, have been interrupted,
or periodically attempt to connect with the FTP server if the pervious
link was unsuccessful.
Servers usually break off a connection automatically
when the user is inactive for more than a specified period of time.
The program includes a command that allows you to "keep connection," which
means that retention prompts are periodically generated to maintain the
connection. It also contains a passive file transfer mode.
Server directories are sometimes hidden from view, which means that the
directory modification option will be extremely helpful.
The properties window of the FTP server offers
a number of highly convenient options: "Initial Directory on FTP Server".
The service functions of the application include drag-and-pop, pop-up and
a context sensitive menu, which can be called up by right-clicking the
mouse. The program is compatible with Proxy, Firewall, Sockets 4, 4.5 and
The superb options of FTP Navigator program
include: directory synchronization on local and remote access computers
(for comparing modified or new files), a full range of keys and options
to monitor command line control, manual input of FTP commands, etc.
Program settings allow you to automatically assign
file transfer parameters: ascii or binary, depending on file type, which
can easily be extended. All commands and control operations can be
assigned using the log file. The pre-set list of public FTP sites
is also very useful. If you consider yourself an "advanced user"
try working in command line mode.
The program is error-sensitive and automatically
corrects mistakes made by users. Other programs tend to use different input
and setting formats to access the FTP server. FTP Navigator
was designed to be smart and sensible software. It will enter the
right address even if you attempt to connect using any one of the following
For example, if you make a mistake and enter a
blank space in the address, the program will automatically remove it from
the address, as well as any other inadmissible symbols, and will correct
the address while the connection is in progress.
The program is compatible with virtually all types
of servers and allows you to frame a special server response format and
a rule for reading the list of server-based files and folders. The
most frequent connections can be saved and subsequently entered by
single- clicking the mouse. The program can save the default folders
both for remote servers and local computers.
Files shown in upper and lower case will appear
on the server as separate files . Therefore, sometimes when you upload
a file or picture, it won't be visible on a website. For example,
your site contains a link to the file vista.gif but you uploaded
Here you will need a program command which allows you to change the case
type, both on local computers and remote servers.

functions. You can:
View files or folders as tables, lists, large
and small icons;
Sort data according to date, size or name,
both in local computers and remote servers;
Use the filter mask to display files, and highlight
the files filtered through the mask.
The program menu is context sensitive and will display
only items which can run in the operating mode you have selected.
Should you require special commands not available
in the program, all you have to do is go to "custom commands", which can
be saved for later use.

Do you need to keep
track of changes that are made to some websites? Would you like to save
time spent waiting for sites to be downloaded from the Internet? Do you
sometimes need to make exact copies of website on your PC so that you can
view them without having to connect to the Internet? Does this all
seem a bit irrelevant, given today's high-speed connection rates?
The point is that when your browser starts downloading
advertisements and all sorts of other useless files which could be located
halfway around the world, even the speediest connections are bound to encounter
delays as each page is downloaded. Even more so if the website contains
a lot of heavy graphics, photos, albums or galleries. On the other
hand, this type of e-intensive website can be effortlessly downloaded from
your hard drive. Seconds turn into minutes and minutes turn into
hours as you keep waiting for "snail mail info" to hit your desktop computer
from the Internet.
