FTPGetter Standard is a FTP client that lets the user connect to FTP servers, access information and files between a local or network server and the FTP server anywhere in the world. Data and files can be sent securely using the common SSL protocol to encrypt data end-to-end. Transferred files can sent safely using SSL. A MD5 hash checksum can also be used to validate that the file has been transferred successful when it matches the before and after transferred file. Wild card searches also offer powerful search options.
This FTP software installs fast. Only 21.7 MB is needed for the installation. There is the option to set up FTPGetter Standard to run as a Windows service. This will help create a connection before user even logs in and after they have logged out. The Windows service works with local devices, so if the user needs access to network disks or shared resources then there are instructions provided for how to make the adjustment post-installation to accommodate this. The next screen lets the user create a Start menu group, a desktop icon, a QuickLaunch icon, and decide whether to launch the program at startup. Once installed, there is a Flash demo offered to explain how to use the software. No malicious or unwanted software additions were included.
The first thing that pops up on the screen is a reminder that this is a 15 day trial period. The option to buy is presented at this stage. The user then can create a new profile (which can be imported if they have a useful profile to add) and begin to add their own FTP sites that they wish to access quickly.
