[OT] Ruby ftp client for windows


#1

I know this is off topic, But, my boss has tasked me with finding a
better
ftp client than the one in Windows XP. Is there a Ruby client that can
recover dropped connections, ( a resume feature)? Would be nice if it
could
handle secure/ encrypted transmissions as well?

Failing that, can anyone recommend a good scriptable ftp client for the
Windows plaftorm?

I also recommend FileZilla, it’s got every FTP feature I’ve needed and
is easy to use.

More props for FileZilla. It’s been my mainstay (aside from the
Dreamweaver FTP integration) for a long time.

If you install cygwin you get curl and wget.
Perhaps there are native windows executables as well.

Totally off-topic but try Filezilla, best FTP client i’ve ever used, on
Windows or otherwise.

Granted FilZilla is a great FTP client. Is it scriptable? Didn’t see
anything about that in the docs.
