JSCAPE is pleased to announce the release of AnyClient 3.0. This release includes several performance enhancements the most important being the ability to transfer multiple files concurrently.
Managed File Transfer and Network Solutions
This video shows how to restrict access to MFTExpress by IP address. This feature allows users to increase security without getting an administrator involved.
If you are like most organizations, then your FTP server accepts file uploads from both internal users (employees) and external users (customers and business partners). In addition to ensuring that data is transmitted securely via encrypted protocols such as FTPS and/or PGP, you should also take measures to verify that the data received does not contain a virus or trojan.
This video describes the Virtual File System on JSCAPE MFT Server and jailed users accounts, which is a feature that increases security.
Streamlined FTP Command Extensions is a proposal for 5 new FTP commands. I stress the word proposal, because it seems to have been abandoned, and would not progress to Internet Standard without a good deal of effort. That said, there was a decent amount of interest in at least some of the commands. I'm going to quote liberally from it for some of the descriptions.
Have you ever uploaded or downloaded a file, and wanted to verify that there were no errors during the transfer? To make sure that the file on your local system and the remote system you transferred it to were identical? There are some cases where we can live with errors in transfers and other mission critical situations where there can be absolutely no errors. Error detection usually involves extra overhead, so it's not desirable in all cases.
Standard FTP already has the REST command, which allows the starting point of a file transfer to be specified:
At approximately 12:20 PM (GMT-6) on April 22nd service for MFTExpress was restored. Amazon continues to have trouble with it's EC2 services at this time so in order to resolve the issue JSCAPE moved it's MFTExpress server and a backup of user and data files to a different Amazon zone not currently experiencing issues.
MFTExpress is currently down. Amazon's EC2 services which MFTExpress depend upon has suffered a massive outage affecting a large number of companies and services including MFT Express.
We apologize for any inconvenience. At this time we are working with Amazon to correct the issue. This is a priority and we will continue to actively work on the issue until there is a resolution.
FTP is quite a stable protocol. It's been used for nearly 4 decades to transfer files. FTP is defined in a series of RFCs (Internet Standards or specifications that describe how to implement the protocol) which are published by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), a standards developing organization.
