FTPit Pro

Transfer files to and from an FTP server


What is FTPit Pro?

FTPit Pro is a FileMaker® Pro plug-in which allows you to transfer files to and from your computer using the File Transfer Protocol (FTP). This plug-in is designed to be easy to use for anyone familiar with FileMaker Pro Calculations and does not require you to learn any sort of scripting language. You can use this plug-in to back up files to a remote server, update static web pages, or completely recreate an FTP client within FileMaker Pro.

This plug-in is a complete rewrite of our previous (Classic) FTPit plug-in for FileMaker Pro 4–6. The Classic FTPit plug-in is made obsolete by FTPit Pro for FileMaker Pro 7 and above. While FTPit Pro does have a backward compatibility option for using databases created to work with the Classic FTPit plug-in, it is highly recommended that you update your calculations to use the new functions in FTPit Pro. Please see the “Porting Guide.txt” file for help in porting databases developed for the Classic version of FTPit to this new FTPit Pro version.

In addition to this FileMaker Pro client version of FTPit Pro, you can also find a FileMaker Server Edition of FTPit Pro on our website. The Server Edition can be installed on FileMaker Server to be used with Scheduled Scripts and/or FileMaker Server Advanced to be used with Web Publishing. For more information about the Server Edition of FTPit Pro, please see the ReadMe file included in the FTPit Pro Server Edition download.
