Software News   Software News : Pete's FTP v0.4 released!
   posted by xeron on 12-Nov-2008 14:21:06 (5369 reads)
Pete's FTP is an advanced OS4 native FTP/SFTP client.

You can download it from here:
http://www.os4depot.net/?function=showfile&file=network/ftp/pftp.lha


Features:


* 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


Changes since v0.3:

- 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.

@xeron

I really appreciate pftp! It's a great client and i use it a lot to transfer data from and to linux/Amigaos4.0 classic/amigaOS4.1. It works even with ssh-keys, great!

Only one thing doesn't work. If you want to connect to a server which doesn't allow passive connections, pftp can't connect. Only for file transfer, you can choose pasive/active mode, right?

There's a ftpd-server for AOS4 at os4depot.net which seem not to be able to handle passive connections and therefore, I can't connect to it with pftp. (I'd like to use that in order to transfer data directly between my two AOS4-systems )

From linux with ncftp, I can connect to that aos4-ftpd if i switch to active mode BEFORE I connect to it (and this seems not to be possible with pftp?).

greetings,
nexus

@nexus

Well, with the XBox FTP server (one of them anyway), it first tries passive, the XBox returns an error, then PFTP switches to active from then on. I guessed that would work everywhere, but I can add a tick box for servers that are active only.

Edit: I've just done it so it'll be in the next version. EMail me and i'll reply with a preview build so you can test it.

Hope it is more user friendly now. A friend tried it on his A1200, it took a while until we finally realised how to transfer files, and is it usable if you don't have a MMB?

It's a nice program otherwise. Is it possible to run it in a window now?

Well, there is full documentation in the archive and online...

It always was, right from day one. Thats what the left and right arrows are for (same as in an old-fashioned 2 pane client, click the arrow pointing to the target).

No.

Yeah i guess we should have read the readme's but people are lazy ;)

Would it be possible to make it to use popup menus. So that you can right click and select transfer queue or something like that?

Good to hear, but i think it we be nice if you would consider a window mode as well,
it feels a little overkill to run it in 1280x1024 or higher if you're using that resolution in WB.

Window mode is tricky because of the modular nature of the program... you're not limited to one local & one remote browser pane.

Would you like to tell us why it'd be so tricky ?

Because you can have any number of any combination of local, FTP and SFTP browsers, and you can transfer files directly between any 2 browers of any kind. You can open and close them at any time.

The easiest way to do that is to have one window per browser.

I don't get why some people are so desperate to have it all in one window anyway, I personally find PFTP's interface very comfortable.
