How to use this free FTP Software?
FTP File Uploader doesn’t have a very interactive interface where you can drag the files into its window. So how do you tell it what to upload? You write it down on a text file and show this software, where the file resides.
Mention the names of files, one per line and save the file with a name. Look at the image below to get a better understanding. I have saved my file as uploadthis.txt to help me remember that it’s for FTP File Uploader.
Once you got the file saved, double-click on FTP File Uploader’s icon and browse to the file that you just created. Provide the FTP Server’s URL to the software with your username and password.
NOTE: FTP File Uploader, the file with names, and the files you want to upload, should be in the same folder.
That’s it. You will see a couple of Black freakish window flying around your desktop, but that’s fine. FTP File Uploader uses CURL to do its job (those window that you see is CURL in action). Once the file is uploaded, this free FTP software is going to tell you so.
I used this free FTP Software and I liked it. It is simple to use and not an inch less, or more, with regards to what it is supposed to do. All you have to do is provide it with a list of filenames to upload, and it will upload them to the right folder on your FTP server. Though I liked the concept of putting the files on to a file and uploading them, however it would had been better if there was an option to mention the FTP server’s address, username and password so the repeated task of typing in the details could be avoided. However, it could be looked on, from another perspective; this setting helps when you’re dealing with various FTP servers with would obviously have different username and password.
I liked FTP File Uploader, and I would like you to try it out too.
