The Main FTP Window

On the upper portion of the main window, there is a Toolbar displaying short-cut buttons that allow you to access commonly-used functions that appear on the FTP menus:

  • Disconnect
  • ASCII type transfer
  • Binary type transfer
  • Copy selected file(s)
  • Copy file with another name
  • Append file to another
  • Reget or Reput selected file
  • Rename selected file
  • Delete selected file(s)
  • Save current settings
  • View selected file to Notepad
  • Update panels
  • Help contents

The left part of the FTP main window consists of two list boxes displaying a current local directory tree structure and a file list for the path above. You can select local files for operations here.

The right part of the FTP main window contains four tabs that house the various program options. These tabs are: Login as, Remote files, Settings and Quote.

The Login as tab is for making connection to a FTP server.

The Remote files tab displays the directory structure of the currently connected server. The window is blank unless FTP is connected to a server, or a server's cached directory information is displayed. Navigating through the server's various folders or directories is accomplished by clicking individual folders with the mouse. Here you can browse your active connection and select directories and files for operations.

When you press the right mouse button on the empty space inside the tab, the drop-down menu will appear:

You can use its available options as follows:


Allows viewing the contents of a current directory as a set of icons, as a list of icons, or as a list of files with its detailed information.

Arrange Icon

Allows you to sort icons in a current directory by name, type, size, or date.

Show hidden files

Allows viewing all kinds of files in a current directory.

New Folder

Creates a new directory in a current directory.


Updates the listing of a current directory.

Change Directory

Changes directory to one you choose in a separate menu.

The Settings tab is used to configure transfer options.

The Quote tab allows you to control a FTP server by command lines.

You can resize file panels and sort files by clicking on the column name at the top of the file listing.

On the lower portion of the main FTP window, the message box displays a listing of all commands sent to the remote server and messages on how the FTP commands are executed. The log can be useful for debugging or troubleshooting purposes. You can scroll messages up and down, select them, and place the data in a log-file for future reference (by pressing the right mouse button and choosing the option). The Debug mode allows you to keep track the FTP session with more details.

The status line displays a current path (if exists) to remote files, the L/R character to indicate the (Local/Remote) active panel for operations, and descriptions of the program's activities during its connection or file transfer operations.
