Short:    Handler to use FTP as real directory - w/src
Author:   Alexandre BALABAN <alexandre()balaban.fr>
Uploader: Alexandre BALABAN <alexandre()balaban.fr>
Version:  1.5
Type:     comm/tcp
Replaces: comm/tcp/ftpmount_os4.lha
Architecture: ppc-amigaos

This is AmigaOS4 native port of FTPMount-handler based on work by Evan Scott,
Thies Wellpott, Martin R. Elsner, Rudolph Riedel and Ilkka Lehtoranta.

Contrary to previous OS4 release this one does *not* need the installation
of 68k version prior to this one.

What is it?

FTPMount is just a small handler and does (nearly) nothing when it is mounted
as device 'FTP:'. But after that you can execute FTP commands very easy by
standard system commands and tools!

It is perfect for tools like DiskMaster, ClassAction, DirOpus or the like.

FTP sites appear as subdirectories of a file system device 'FTP:'. The root
directory of FTP: is actually a mirror of a real directory somewhere else in
the file system.  This allows common FTP sites to be permanently listed under
FTP: (so they appear in file requesters etc), and, through the use of icon
tooltypes, to support ftp site aliases and other options.

FTPMount supports both anonymous and private ftp sessions.  Mounted private ftp
sessions can act as a poor-person's NFS mount.

                                                    Alexandre BALABAN.


  27.11.05, V1.5/OS4:
   · Crash when trying to open remote files directly with some softwares (AWeb
     was one of them).
   · Now the OS4 archive is self sustanting : i.e. no more need to install the
     68k FTPMount version prior to the OS4 one,
   · Bug fixed and updated the AmigaGuide documentation,
   · Install script now supports localization (English and French currently)

  25.05.05, V1.4/OS4:
   · First OS4 version based upon sources revorked for MorphOS by Ilkka
