Vicomsoft FTP Client5.5

04 February 2016

Pro-level FTP/SFTP client.


Note: Vicomsoft FTP Client is no longer under development and the developer provides no support for it.

Vicomsoft FTP Client is a pro-level, full-featured, fast and reliable, easy-to-use FTP + SFTP + FTPS client for OS X. First released in 1997, the latest version represents the culmination of 19 years' experience in FTP transfers on the Mac platform. Extreme performance and unrivalled reliability, married with a sleek and intuitive user interface is the result.

Been using this for years. The simple split-screen interface is a winner.

This app is indispensible. As a web developer, I live inside this program daily, and find it stable and functionally quite comfortable. Have worked with several of the other FTP clients out there, but always come back to this one. Using Mavericks, right now. No problems.

Drag n' drop doesn't seem to work under panther ;-( And it bombs away. Pretty unstable. Maybe 4.0.3 will fix this? Otherwise a great app!

Hands-down the ultimate FTP client. I have been (very unpatiently) waiting for this release and it does not disappoint. Accepts all of my previous Bookmarks without a hassle! Looking forward to dumping Fetch now. Congrats! Great OSX release!!!

FTPClient is the best! Make no mistake about it! There is a new version of the software coming out in Feb 2003 for OS X! I saw an early version at the Macworld show in SF and it was awesome! Keep an eye on their site (I think it's released on Feb 18th)...

I used their demo, which worked great for 30 days, and bought the software. I spent 6 hours so far trying to get my system out of crashes. Just like any 3rd party software you can be really be bugged down by some God knows what extension conflict. Once again the demo worked perfectly but the tech support has not responded yet. So there is no tech support to speak of when you really need it. Fetch still has an icon on my desktop even though it has its flaws.

Absolutely the best FTP software for Mac but... no OSX compatibility.

The best ftp-client for Mac, no doubt. I have tried them all.
