Captain FTP overview

Captain FTP is a fast, powerful, secure, user-friendly FTP client which makes transferring files simple. Users may use simple drag-and-drop from the Finder/Desktop to multiple remote sites available with the tabbed interface. Manage file transfers with our Transfer Manager which allows users to monitor, pause, stop, restart and even schedule file transfers.

Updating your Web site is made very easy with our sophisticated yet easy-to-use Synchronization module. We even provide the ability to schedule 'Sync Jobs' at a time convenient for you.

For quick access to your remote data, Captain FTP has provided 'Virtual Folders', a direct desktop shortcut to a remote folder which may be also placed in the dock. Simply drop a file on the folder icon to transfer the file.

I have used this program for years, from Version 1x on, for Mac OS 10.4 to 10.11.6, and it has been fine all the time. I was also about to give up on it, since there were no udates for years until now. I liked SnowLeopard as an OS better, but I've no control over the system updates any more. Thankfully, the program just works, and seldom crashes for me.

I've been using Captain FTP since Version 1, and its always been a workhorse for me. However, there hasn't been any updates since 2013, so I cannot say if this program works under El Captain 10.11. Version 6.5x worked fine under Snow Leopard for me. I know they dropped PPC support with Version 6.2. There are two 6.5 versions, one for 10.7 & higher, one for 10.6.

I finally got a reply from the "Captain". He told me to try this link http://xdsnet.net/captain/archive/CaptainFTP6.5.dmg I haven't tried it because I got the app from my backup drive. I am posting this for others that have SnowLeopard as their OS.

I downloaded and installed 6.5 which was supposed to be for Snow Leopard and I got a crash report stating "Incompatible library version: Captain FTP requires version 7.0.0 or later. " I have written to the developer about this and I didn't get a reply so far.I took the download both here and on his web site. I can not understand why even MacUpdate doesn't correct this glaring error which will cause a lot of inconvenience for Snow Leopard Users. Fortunately I had a backup copy of 6.5 on my back up volume and I installed it. I have to give 2 stars as I feel dismayed by the poor download situation.
