FTP clients have been around for a while, so it's pretty easy to get one, but finding the right software that has the feature pack to suit your needs can be not so straightforward.
A tool like FlashFXP, though, is designed to be used by anyone because it comes with many features that are not too hard to work with. The interface doesn't seem to be much different from other FTP clients and there are a lot of goodies hidden under the hood.
FlashFXP supports multiple transfer types, be them PC to Server, Server to PC or FTP server to FTP server sessions, but, at the same time, it can also schedule tasks for managing transfers, even if the user is not in front of the monitor.
Connecting to a remote server can be done in a matter of seconds with the 'Quick Connect' feature. However, during our tests the only way we could establish multiple simultaneous connections was to open several instances of the application.
FlashFXP offers an impressive list of options that can be tweaked so you can set rules for file transfers, filter file extensions, create priority or skip lists, manage sites and detailed information regarding each of them.
The software also comes with a set of handy tools like a text editor to open files straight from the server without downloading them. With FlashFXP you can compare folder content, schedule tasks, backup and import configuration settings and much more.
Overall, the strong feature pack and the highly customizable settings that can be configured with minimal effort make FlashFXP one of the top choices in its category.
