Beyond FTP Feature Tour
Beyond FTP - Overview
to Feature Tour
3.1.0 has a totally new user interface
the ability to "skin" the look and feel.
An "explorer-like" interface allows you
to do drag and drop transfers, rename files, delete files,
directory creations and deletions, etc. It also allows you
total control of transfers and
scripts, from initiation to completion, with
real-time monitoring in between.
3.1.0 allows complicated transfer scenarios to be
scripted and scheduled, providing automated operation of
routine, repetitive tasks. The script language
remains simple, yet powerful,
with many new features.
Beyond FTP 3.1.0
operates in both a peer-to-peer fashion, where there are
Beyond FTP servers at both ends of the transfer, and a
client-server fashion, where one end of the transfer is a
FTP server. Peer-to-peer operation includes a number of
- Recovery - failed transfers
restart at the point of failure, not the beginning
- Security - all traffic is
- Remote Execution - scripts can
be started and controlled at remote computers
- Simplicity - operations are
not dependent on the class of remote server.
- Completeness - Beyond FTP
servers can access the entire remote file system
Beyond FTP represents remote file
systems as Servers with drive letters and directory structures.
This is true for both Standard FTP and
Beyond FTP servers. The file viewer presents any file system as
a tree hierarchy. The top of this tree is the Address Book,
where information about remote servers is stored. Navigating the
tree opens these servers, their drives, and their directories.
The actual access is restricted by the Beyond FTP user name and
