Maybe it is little different with your STAR software, because STAR can play server and client side, but Wing FTP Server only includes server side, you must use ftp client or web browser as client side.




Can you please help me in knowing more about "web browser/client as client side and how it works in case of WingFTP". If we want to install WingFtp server on client side means do we need to pay for each installation.

OK, you must clear one thing: Only client side can put/get files to/from server side. Server side can't put/get files to/from client side actively.

Do you want to install Wing FTP Server on every client machines? Why do you want this?
And you can try our demo server first: http://www.wftpserver.com/onlinedemo.htm

I have placed a file in some host(client), and I need to transfer the file to WingFTP Server that is installed in my machine and after file comes to WingFTP server that is installed in my system, I want to transfer the files from WingFTP Server to another host. Can you plz guide me regarding the same.

Client 1 --> Pull the file to WIngFTP Server --> WingFTP Server(Installed in my machine/system) --> transfer the file1 to another Client --> Client2
Can you plz help in knowing more about Scheduler and which LuaScript command I need to enter to access the file from Client host to WingFTP server that i have installed on my system.

"""" you must clear one thing: Only client side can put/get files to/from server side. Server side can't put/get files to/from client side actively. """ THIS WAS THE REPLY I GOT FROM YOU COUPLE OF DAYS AGO"


I have some couple of questions to your input:-

1) When Client side puts or get the file means, what is the purpose of WingFTP Server that will be located in our company AOL.
2) How can we track of the file transfers.
3) How can we give the access rights to the clients to transfer files.


This is what I am looking from WingFTP:-

"Client1 has some file that needs to be transfer to Client2 through WingFTP server(that will be located at AOL)."

Please explain me the steps with an example how the transfer will work.

Yes, I know what is your requirement. But every server software can't connect to client side(client side do not contain server function) actively.

So there are two ways to solve your problem:

1. Client A send files to server via FTP(or HTTP, SSH). Then notify Client B, tell him files have been sent(include file path and user/pass), then Client B log on the server, then get the target files.

2. Client A and Client B all know server's user/pass and which path to put/get files, so Client A just need to put files to the server, Client B need a scheduler task(like once hour) to fetch files on the server, when Client B fetched files successfully, he just need to delete those files on the server.

It seems you are confused with some FTP concept, anyway, let me answer your questions:
a) Wing FTP Serve supports FTPS, HTTPS and SFTP, with those protocols, your connections will be encrypted, and it is very safe.
b) FTP(s) and SFTP supports resuming download or upload.
c) It supports FTP raw commands "TYPE A" and "TYPE I", which can switch between binary mode and ascii mode.
d) Do you mean using wild card file pattern with command-line ftp client? yes, you can use such commands: ls *.txt or mget *.get
e) When you use FTPS, HTTPS, SFTP, you need a ssl certificate(or ssh key). Default settings include self-signed certificate, so you do not need to do anything.
f) Do you mean how does SSL or SSH work? please have a look on this Wiki article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transport_Layer_Security
g) You can use SFV function, http://www.wftpserver.com/help/ftpserve ... ectory.htm
