    Default Developer FTP Client

    The developer built-in ftp client has trouble sending files to some remote sites.

    Then you have to use an external FTP client, and sending files becomes a "many step" process.

    Please improve the built-in ftp client or integrate the developer with an existing FTP client.

    Did you lodge a bug report? Do you know why it does not work with some sites?

    Well, it is not a bug.

    It is stated in Alpha 5 when you select "Internal FTP": Warning: Internal FTP does not support passive mode. This may cause problems with some firewalls and routers"


    I have a rather complex path to the server site (Firewall +VPN) so I can understand it does not work.

    By the way, do you know a way to file a bug report to Alpha5?

    I also vote for an improved FTP client. Back in Versions 7 and 8 there was much discussion about FTP problems. I recently upgraded to Version 10.5, so I thought I would check for how ftp is working in the current version. However, I think that I will stick with using a third party client. This is not a big deal for development, but it causes extra problems for the ftp component of end user applications. I, too, vote for an improved ftp client. If alpha does not want to develop want, how about integration with some existing ftp client?
