User-friendly FTP client and server. The convenient ALFTP Client and Server Explorer lets you browse or drag and drop files just like in Windows Explorer. Transfer queues simplify file management.
Share files with friends and family in less than 10 seconds with the easiest FTP server. Just turn it on and set a couple preferences.
Resume broken transfers, Direct Edit files on servers, quickly connect through the Site Map, or send direct FTP commands.
ALFTP is designed for maximum ease while still offering a full feature set for more advanced users.
The default interface has a top server and bottom client (your PC) explorer complete with folder tree view for easy navigation. A simpler left and right arrangement with no folder trees is available for those who prefer.
Just drag and drop files between your PC (client) and the server to upload or download. Selecting large numbers of files from different locations is easy with a transfer queue much like an online shopping cart. Uploading and downloading ("checking out") is just a matter of clicking "Start queued transfers".
The transfer queue also lets you keep track of current transfers. More details in the status bar keep you informed about disk size, percent complete, bytes transferred, transfer speed, and estimated transfer time.
The basic FTP server is ideal for quickly sharing and transferring files like home videos, photo galleries, and backup archives that are too large for email. Again, simplicity makes it usable by even 1st time FTP server operators.
Direct Edit is ideal for web developers to directly open and edit files on FTP servers. Simply open a file as normal, make your edits, save as normal in your editing program (e.g. Photoshop, the GIMP, Dreamweaver, Visual Studio, UltraEdit, Notepad, etc.) and confirm saving it to the server.
More advanced users can directly issue RFC 959 or custom commands.
