Written in Java, AbleFtp is an unusual, cross-platform FTP client, providing a unique feature set that places an emphasis on automating common FTP tasks. Distinguishing features include:

  • Helps create advanced FTP tasks that can be scheduled to automatically or to run manually.
  • Automate FTP to/from an intranet or Internet server. Schedule FTP of files between your PC and the server; and automatically rename the files based on current month, day or time if needed. FTP supports wildcards (*). Transfer multiple files at once. Supports subdirectory transfers.
  • Remote FTP directory monitor can detect directory change and trigger FTP, zip, copy, delete tasks. It can also detect file size, total files, file modification dates and then trigger other tasks, if required.
  • FTP Command task can run RFC FTP commands in sequence.
  • Scheduler software is very easy to use, yet has very powerful scheduling, tasking and automation capabilities.
  • Email Notification of task failure, based on task exit code.
  • Local directory monitor works similar to the Remote FTP directory monitor.
  • Zip and copy files and directories using wildcards on a schedule.
  • Delete files on schedule, based on wildcards.
  • Multiple Connections: unlimited simultaneous threads and unlimited FTP browsers can be opened.

Version 8.40 adds/changes the following:

  • FTP-J module - SSL tab - Keystore password field was not visible for many operating systems.
