Pete's FTP v1.2 =============== Pete's FTP is an advanced FTP/SFTP client. PFTP is free, but if you find it useful you are encouraged to send a PayPal donation to pete()petergordon.org.uk .. doing so will encourage future development. If you have any suggestions or bug reports, please use the bug tracker here: http://stackswap.net (Thanks to Costel 'Cyborg' Mincea for hosting the bugtracker!) Thanks also to Steven Solie for his OpenSSH port, and Martin 'Mason' Merz for the icons! SFTP NOTES (Please read all of this section if you intend to use SFTP) ---------------------------------------------------------------------- SFTP support requires at least version 52.3 of Steven Solie's OpenSSH port to be correctly installed and working. Please refer to the documentation that comes with openssh for instructions on installing it. If ssh is in the searchpath, PFTP will find and use it automatically, otherwise you can specify a specific location via tooltypes (see the documentation for details). NOTE: If you have a version of queue-handler older than 52.2 installed, PFTP will hog cpu time while transferring files over sftp. This is due to a bug in older versions of queue-handler. 1. Why another FTP client? -------------------------- Because I wasn't satisfied with all the current choices out there on the Amiga. I want PFTP to be able to compete not with other Amiga FTP clients, but against commercial Windows FTP clients. I still have a lot to do before I get there, but I think PFTP is already one of the most powerful and feature-rich Amiga FTP clients. Some features already present in PFTP: * Fully multithreaded design * (S)FTP to (S)FTP transfers (any combination) * Multiple windows (for local, SFTP and FTP connections) * Browsing while downloading * Drag and drop * Reaction GUI * Pause and resume transfers * Resume files that are already present at the target * Transferring of whole directories with contents * Deletion of directories with all contents * Passive and active transfers supported * Optional automatic binary/ascii mode setting * AISS toolbars * Detailed HTML documentation * Localised (translations welcome :-) 2. History ---------- 1.2 (01-Jul-2012) ----------------- - SFTP transfers are now a bit faster. - Passing "-a" to FTP list commands is now optional since not all servers support it (thanks to Alexandre Balaban) - No longer sends a CWD command with no path if the initial path is not specified (Thanks to kas1e and Cyborg) 1.1 (03-May-2010) ----------------- - Now uses OS4.1 Update 1's URL handler instead of OpenURL. - Fixed all warnings with the latest SDK - You can now sort by name, size or date (suggested by Mario Cattaneo). - When copying multiple files, the overwrite/resume requester now also offers "Overwrite All", "Skip" and "Skip All" where appropriate (suggested by Heiko Gyrok). - Uses built-in scrollwheel support instead of a custom IDCMP hook. 1.0 (14-Oct-2009) ----------------- - No longer beta - Now theres a checkbox to disable passive mode for servers that don't support it. Previously we tried to detect servers and switch automatically (which we still do), but it wasn't perfect, so now you can force it. Thanks to nexus on AW.net for pointing it out. - When attempting to upload a file to an FTP server, it now properly copes with permission denied errors. Also reports it in the error log window. - Now hides newly opened browser windows until their final position and size has been calculated. - Fixed date calculations when using a non-english system locale (thanks to Philippe Ferrucci for the report). - FINALLY fixed the mysterious stalling bugs (thanks to everyone who reported it, and especially Kicko for bugging me about it and being such a helpful tester). - Added CHMOD support (I think spotUP asked for this) - No longer leaves any images locked (thanks to Jahc and anyone else who reported this). - Now has its own image set (thanks Mason)! If you want it to use AISS instead, add "USE_AISS=Yes" to the tooltypes. - If the server responds to a PASV command with the IP address 0.0.0.0, PFTP now uses the server address instead (thanks to Jahc). - If you have an FTP server with maximum connections set to more than the FTP site will allow, it'll reduce the maximum connections as and when logins fail. Note that it is better to set this value correctly in the first place to avoid spamming the server with logins. - If you connect to a server without an "initial local directory" set, it no longer resets an adjacent local browser to the volume list (thanks to Mario Cattaneo). - Copes better with 451 server errors when attempting to retrieve files (thanks to Janne Peräaho). - You can now specify a screenmode. NOTE: You have to quit / restart for the change to take effect. - You can now optionally disable compositing on the PFTP screen to save ram. Again, a quit/restart is required. - Whole new icon and image set created by Mason (thanks!) - Now uses "LIST -a" instead of just "LIST" (thanks to Andy Broad and Joerg Strohmayer for the suggestion). 0.4 (12-Nov-2008) ----------------- - When you couldn't connect to a server, PFTP would hang. Fixed. - Icon is now a proper Amiga icon. Didn't realise it was png because i have the png iconmodule installed and i just copied over the file i got from Mason and forgot about it. - Now copes with servers that include a total number of files with the file listing at the top. Thanks to Magnus Andersson for his help with this one. - Now doesn't crash if you click a link in the about window without OpenURL installed. - The local browser thread didn't properly keep track of how many messages it was expecting a reply for, and could sometimes hang around waiting for responses it had already received. Fixed. - If you started some local-to-local transfers, and one of them failed for any reason, the ones after it wouldn't start. Fixed. - Local-to-local transfers that had a read or write error during transfer were treated as if they succeeded. Fixed. - If a transfer failed, it would be silently added to the failed transfer list, and an error message printed in the log. This is easily missed during bulk transfers. Now there is an error log for errors that occur during transfers, which pops up to let you know something went wrong. Items in bold are new ones since the last time the error log window was closed. Thanks to Mario Cattaneo for making me get around to this finally :) - Improved the error handling and detection for SFTP. - If you selected more than one directory, but no files, and deleted them, only the first one would be deleted. Fixed. (Thanks to Janne Peräaho for the report). - If you deleted a directory, but no files, the browser wouldn't be refreshed aftwards. Fixed. (Thanks to Janne Peräaho for the report). - Added a debug menu to make it easier to find and fix faults that i can't reproduce: If you get a blank lister when you visit a certain FTP site, tick the "Generate RAM:list_debug.txt" option and refresh the lister, you should now have a file in ram called "list_debug.txt" with the raw directory as sent by the FTP server. If you get stalled transfer or delete operations, or other odd behaviour, select "Dump structures" and send the resulting file, along with the log, to me for further analysis.
