FTPit Pro 2.0.8 Released – Bug Fixes / Maintenance Release

Comm-Unity Networking Systems announces an update to the FTPit Pro plug-in.  This release fixes many issues and brings in some important core updates from other CNS Plug-ins.  FTPit Pro is available immediately athttp://ftpitpro.cnsplug-ins.com/ for both Mac OS(R) X and Windows(R).

FTPit Pro is a FileMaker(R) Pro 7+ plug-in that uses FTP to transfer files to and from your computer.  It is compatible with Mac OS(R) X 10.4+ and Windows(R) 2000/XP/Vista/7.  Use it to upload static web pages to a website, download database upgrades from a centralized server, or write a complete FTP client within FileMaker Pro itself.  You can transfer text directly to or from fields in your database, and you can upload files that reside in container fields.  The Server Edition of FTPit Pro allows you to install and use the plug-in with FileMaker Server and Server Advanced.  With the Server Edition, you can now do things like transfer database backups to an offsite server directly from the FileMaker Server machine or use the plug-in with an Instant Web Publishing database you’ve developed.  Download a copy today to explore the many features of this plug-in.
