In the past few days we have thoroughly tested several Android FTP clients against our Syncplify.me Server! and all of them ran smoothly without issues. Here’s the list of clients (and protocols) we have tested:
Some of our users are asking how to use Syncplify.me Server! as a shared repository to keep files/folders on their Android devices always in sync.
There are various Android FTP(S)/SFTP clients that work smoothly with Syncplify.me Server! but, in this case, we need more: we need one that doesn’t just transfer files between Android and FTP(S)/SFTP, but can also keep them in sync.
Some of our users have been asking why there are so many “ports” to configure in Syncplify.me Server! and if configuring them is really necessary.
First of all, let’s say that Syncplify.me Server! is designed to work out-of-the-box, without the need for any special reconfiguration. In fact, by default, it uses the ports defined in each protocol standard (21 and 20 for FTP, 990 and 989 for FTPS, and 22 for SFTP) plus the widest possible port-range for passive FTP(S) connections.
Some of our users are asking how to perform an incremental search with Syncplify.me Notepad! Actually that is very easy. After searching for any term (using the Find window) you can simply hit F3 to search for the next occurrence of the same word, or hit Shift-F3 to search for the previous one.
Some SFTP clients have the ability to generate key-pairs for SSH2 public-key authentication, and – in some cases – our users are presented with the question: do you want to generate RSA or DSA keys?
When you want to authenticate against a Syncplify.me Server!, please, always use RSA keys. If you use DSA keys you may not be able to successfully authenticate.
In Syncplify.me Server! version 184.108.40.206 we have introduced an additional automatic triggering method for the blacklist, and several users asked us to explain how it works with more detail.
The previous versions, in fact, were already able to trigger the automatic blacklisting of a client IP address upon a certain number (configurable) of failed authentication attempts.
Sometimes we receive emails from Syncplify.me Notepad! users, asking how to make Notepad! the default program to handle text (.txt) files in Windows.
Dear friends and fellow FtpScripter users, it’s our pleasure to announce that today FtpScripter has joined the syncplify.me family.
We will keep developing FtpScripter in the new company and with the brand new name of Ftp Script! Today we have released version 220.127.116.11 which is the first re-branded version with the new logo and slightly revisited GUI.
Depending on the operating system, you can find your FtpScripter configuration files in different locations (by default).
If you’re running Windows XP or 2003 they are in:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\FtpScripter\
If you’re running Windows Vista, 2008, 7, 2012, or 8, they are in:
C:\ProgramData\FtpScripter\ Continue reading
