FTPit beta for FileMaker
Comm-Unity Networking Systems today announced the sixth and final public beta of its upcoming FTPit Pro 2.0.0 plug-in for FileMaker Pro 7.x or higher. The application has been completely re-written, allowing users to transfer files to and from your computer using FTP, all from within FileMaker. This beta is now feature complete, including DownloadDir and UploadDir functions. The next release will be the final version.
FTPit Pro can be used to upload static web pages to a website, download database upgrades from a centralized server, or write a complete FTP client within FileMaker Pro. Text can be transferred directly to and from fields in a database, and files that reside in container fields can be uploaded.
The Server Edition of FTPit Pro allows users to install and use the plug-in with FileMaker Server and Server Advanced. The Server edition now allows transferring of database backups to offsite servers directly from the FileMaker Server machine or the ability to use the plug-in with an Instant Web Publishing database.
FTPit Pro 2.0.0 Beta 6 requires FileMaker Pro 7.x or higher and will work on Mac or Windows systems. The plug-in is available from Comm-Unity Network Systems. The final version will cost $65 for a single user license. To use the Server Edition a license for at least 10 users must be obtained, starting at $320. More pricing options are available.
