How many steps do you need to upload your web site updates to the server? Let's count: run an FTP client, connect to the server, select source files and folders on your PC, select a destination folder on an FTP server and press the Upload button. The result is five. Quite a bit? Why not let your computer do all this for you? You need FTPGetter.
FTPGetter is a secure FTP automation scheduler. All you need is to create profiles of the FTP servers with which the program will work. FTPGetter supports FTP and secure FTP over SSL protocols, authorization using PEM/ASN1 or PKCS12 certificates and keys, connection through FTP/SOCKS/HTTP proxy and bandwidth control. For each server profile, automation tasks are created: upload or download, source files and folders, destination folder. Preliminary comparison of source and destination files by modification date/time, MD5 hash or size allows transfers of only new or modified files.
FTPGetter has a unique feature of using wildchars for processing files by mask. For example, if you need to upload only HTML files - you should specify "*.html" as the mask instead of the source file name. FTPGetter will then upload only HTML documents.
Apart from file processing, FTPGetter can process the contents of all subfolders of the source folder that you specify. The program will synchronize the structure of source and destination subfolders. You can be sure that all new subfolders of your site will be automatically uploaded - if the subfolder is lacking on the server it will be automatically created.
Each profile has a built-in scheduler which can help you to set an automation tasks processing schedule.
A built-in FTP Explorer allows you to work with FTP servers just as you do with common FTP client programs. You can browse FTP server folders, create new folders, rename or delete files and folders on the FTP server, manually upload and download files and much more.
