A review of Absolute FTP by Fernando Ortega

Absolute FTP is an FTP client offered (at some point) by Van Dyke. It contains several standard features but has been discontinued by the developer. It is still available for download but has been suceeded by SecureFX taken into account the possible security exploits typical FTP clients may pose.

Absolute FTP features and highlights:
  • User authentication: with support for public keys
  • Public Key Assistant: Easily upload public keys to an FTP server
  • Data encryption algorithms supported
  • Host identity verification
  • Multiple simultaneous connections and transfers
  • Specify number of parallel transfers
  • Ability to throttle bandwidth
  • Integrates with SecureCRT

Absolute FTP is licensed as Shareware for the Windows operating system / platform from ftp clients and can be used as a free trial until the trial period ends (after an unspecified number of days). The Absolute FTP 2.0.3 demo is available to all software users as a free download with potential restrictions and is not necessarily the download of the full version.
