Transmit provides a secure/HTTPS WebDav connect to my web hosting on Mavericks.

At the time of this review, CyberDuck & OS X are not successfully connecting to these web servers with a secure/HTTPS WebDav connection on Mavericks. Forklift did not work for me on pre-Mavericks ... so, I've not kept Forklift on my system. YummyFTP does not support WebDav protocol.

I do think that CyberDuck, ForkLift, Transmit & YummyFTP are worth considering, if they work for your situation.

For my situation, Transmit works where others currently do not, and Transmit is a pleasant, productive application to use.

Some time ago I was using both demos of Forklift and Transmit. The GUI are similar and both do work fine. Although Forklift is mostly faster in transferring files to our server and never crashed. Had a couple of lockups with Transmit during file transfers.

In the end I choose Forklift because the GUI is more uptodate (uses newer and useful OSX APIs as popovers/popups) and is a bit cheaper.

Transmit 4.4.x has been crashing out-of-the-blue ever since Mavericks was released. I have submitted very specific crash reports to Panic many, many times. Panic has not responded to my emails, either. They clearly have no desire to fix the problem or acknowledge that they can't. Very unprofessional.

I have not had a single crash since updating to Mavericks, or actually ever with Transmit 4.4.x.

Maybe your preference file is corrupt?

Transmit is blazing fast. Opens really quick and is easy on memory and resources, unlike other FTP clients (Cyberduck, its so incredibly slow).

iCloud sync is only available if you purchase through Apple App Store.

That sucks for those of us who bought directly through Panic, Inc. :(

That does suck. But at least they included Dropbox synch.

I also bought mine directly from Panic.

Just FYI: if you are annoyed by this, be sure to place the blame in the correct place -- Apple. They are the ones who restrict iCloud to apps sold in the Mac App Store, as a 'carrot' to get developers to sell their apps through the Mac App Store.

OTOH, you get updates much faster than we Mac App Store customers, who routinely need to wait at least a week for every single bug-fix version.

I wish I had bought Transmit direct, and now I buy direct whenever possible.

I too will always buy directly from the developer when possible. I want to own my software outright and not be dependent upon Apple's DRM servers, where you're really only renting software so long as they let you.

Further, for software I buy I want to support the developer as much as possible which means buying directly without Apple taking its 30% cut as the middle-man. This software is priced extraordinarily well for its quality and Panic deserves every dollar they get.

I tend to follow Apple's lead, in this case Apple App Store is integral to the way software is distributed. I bought both direct from Panic, and then through the Apple App Store (once I discovered iCloud sync is only available through that version). I'm working with the developer to get refunded for the directly purchased copy, since I'll be fine with the Apple App Store copy. Today was the perfect example, an update was released, I clicked the [Install] button...done.

Nice FTP client very similar to Forklift. Tried both and imo Forklift is just a bit better. It cheaper too.

So try both and see which fits for you.

good software however has a big drawback:

You can not change permissions recursively and choose

Apply to enclosed Files
Apply To enclosed folders
Apply to enclosed files AND folders

but have to apply it to everything which is really bad!!

Please fix this

Billyok had trouble on 27 Oct 2010
I noticed that, as of 4.1.3, when I double-click a file to edit it in TextWrangler, Transmit opens the page in the background instead of switching me to that program and opening the file in the foreground. I like to make a lot of quick edits all at once, and it's nice to save the step of switching applications each time I open a page. I'm not sure if this is a side effect of the TextWrangler/BBEdit blank window fix, but I'd certainly like to see the old method resurface (or at least an option to revert to 4.1.2's behavior) in the next revision.

I configured a favorite with a remote folder (e.g. "/backup/test”). When I first mount it everything is fine and the remote folder is displayed right away.

Now if I close Finder (Snow Leopard fully updated) or click a local folder and then click the FTP drive again, the remote folder is ignored and the root folder is displayed instead.

Attention! Having administrator privileges you can delete system files and folder on local browser!
I accidentally deleted the contents of my desktop! Transmit warns that you can not delete system files, but then asks for confirmation to do so anyway. If we confirm Transmit erase the file/folder without prompting the system password.
Forklift and Flow do not do this!

More information please? Can *you* delete the files on your Desktop that you mentioned? If so, then why would you expect Transmit not to be able to? These are not "System Files", which would typically require admin privileges to delete.

When I try to delete my desktop with the Finder the system does not allow it and it is right. This does not afford it other programs like Flow or Forklift.
Transmit seems to give to the administrator the root privileges without asking any password . And This is not right.
My system is Snow Leopard v.10.6.3

I'm not following. The Desktop folder grants the logged in user read and write. That means you can delete it via Finder, Terminal, anything without a password. Unless I'm missing some hidden attribute somewhere, I don't understand your problem.

I don't see how Transmit could acquire admin privileges without asking for a password, so I'm not sure how it could delete anything unless your account has those permissions. This is not a Transmit thing, but an OS thing...

Ok. But ...Transmit not put deleted files on bin.
Why remove them permanently?
I repeat: Flow does not delete any files on system folder and Forklift puts them properly on Trash.
Is there something wrong .. Sorry for my bad English and if I do not explain myself well....

Hey,

I am using Transmit on OS 10.4.11. I am experiencing many stalls and severed connections. I don't recall having this problem a year ago. I like the program but am thinking about switching to something else. Any suggestions?

Taint had trouble on 09 Feb 2006
For some reason after updating to 3.5 every time I upload a large .zip file it seems to upload twice. I'll drag the file to the "Their stuff" side and it starts to transfer. it estimates a time until completion and then when it gets to be that time it uploads the file all over again. Pretty annoying when I am uploading a 400 MB file.
