Ipswitch WS_FTP also:
Can schedule repetitious file transfers
Provides both a classic and Windows Explorer interface
Uses dockable toolbars to provide easier access to the transfer process
Manages multiple concurrent FTP connections, which can be to the same site, for faster downloads
Adds a new URL bar to make navigation easier and faster
Automates routine tasks
Provides better access through multiple firewalls
Supports Secure Socket Layers (SSL) for safe file transfer
WS_FTP Pro 7.0 is priced at $45 in stores, or $39.95 online. Upgrades from WS_FTP Pro 6.0 is $9.95.
