Fort Worth, TX, May 21, 2001 — Comm-Unity Networking Systems, creators of
the excellent SMTPit and POP3it email plug-ins, announces the release of
FTPit 1.0 Final, for FileMaker Pro 4.x and 5.x for both Macintosh and
Windows Platforms.

FTPit uses the File Transfer Protocol to allow you to upload and download
files to and from an FTP site. It also allows you to upload text from a
FileMaker field directly to a file on an FTP site. You do not need an
external FTP client to use this plug-in, just FileMaker Pro.

You can easily integrate FTPit into your existing solutions. However, a
basic knowledge of FileMaker Pro Scripting is needed. The documentation for
FTPit covers how to use the FTPit plug-in.

“FTPit is great. Faster than [a standalone Mac FTP client]. The FTP_Example
[database] is so well written. Even if someone doesn’t care about FTP, the
FTP_Example [database] is a great demonstration for using FileMaker Pro as
a File Browser/Manager.” – Marino Pascal, FileMaker Pro developer

Possible Uses and Features of FTPit

– Upload a full static webpage using only FileMaker Pro and FTPit.
– Queue up multiple uploads and downloads and sit back while they all get
