fourth public beta of its upcoming FTPit Pro plug-in for FileMaker Pro.
This is a complete rewrite of the Classic FileMaker 6 FTPit plug-in for

from your computer using the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) all from within
FileMaker Pro. Beta 4 now has the ExportContainer and ImportContainer
functions, the QuickDownload and QuickUpload functions, and a working
Progress Window, complete with a button for Cancelling transfers. This beta
is available immediately at for both Mac OS

web pages to a website, upload database backups to a offsite server,
download database upgrades from a centralized server, or write a complete
FTP client within FileMaker Pro itself. You can transfer text directly to

container fields. Download a copy today to explore the many features of
