Key Features

  • New Synchronized Navigation

    Webmasters frequently have to work with multiple hosts which share the same directory structures. It is time consuming to navigate through each hosts one at a time. Xftp 5 introduces the synchronized navigation feature to resolve this issue. You can navigate on one of the hosts and the other hosts will look for the same directory and navigate automatically for you.

  • New Are You Prepared for IPv6? Xftp is Ready.

    Recently, more and more companies and countries are adopting IPv6. Join the migration to the latest network platform with Version 5’s IPv6 support. Whether you’re using IPv4 and IPv6 simultaneously or are completely on the IPv6 network, our software is ready to meet your needs.

  • New Client Authentication with MIT Kerberos

    Kerberos is widely used in today’s enterprise environment where various operating systems are used and a centralized user authentication is required. The centralized authentication method of Kerberos provides more secure and convenient user access to the servers. To accommodate our enterprise users’ needs, Xftp 5 includes support for MIT Kerberos authentication.

  • New Keep Xftp Up-to-Date

  • Synchronizing

    The synchronization feature in Xftp 5 supports synchronizing files and folders between the remote and local folders. Once you are in the desired remote folder you want to sync, click the Sync button and synchronization will begin effortlessly

  • Multiple Panes

    Xftp supports more than 2 panes and each pane can have multiple tabs. You can transfer files to multiple destinations without having to go through each tab. Also, the "Send to All Remote Session" feature allows you to send files to multiple locations at once.

  • FXP Support

    With FXP, you can dramatically reduce the time it takes to transfer files between remote servers. FXP eliminates the data routing to a local PC, and instead transfers data directly between two remote FTP servers.

  • Use Notepad to Directly Edit Remote Files

    The Direct Edit feature allows users to edit remote files directly with Windows Notepad without downloading the file. This saves time by not only preventing the need to download the file but also preventing the need to upload once done editing. Xftp also provides an option for users to choose their preferred editor instead of using the default Windows Notepad.

  • Start a Terminal Session with Click of a Button

    Xftp can interoperate with our terminal emulator, Xshell. By clicking the Xshell button, Xftp starts a terminal session from the open connection without having to go through the authentication process again.

  • Increase Download/Upload Speed

    The Multiple Transfer feature allows making multiple connections to upload/download files faster. This feature can increase the user’s productivity by allowing the maximum usage of the user’s bandwidth even when a download/upload speed limit for each network connection exists.

  • Direct Control using Transfer Window Menu

    By using the Transfer window menu, the user can easily monitor and manage files in transfer and also manage scheduled transfers for future upload and download transfers.
