    New Version Updates - What's new since the last version
    We regularly release new updates to our existing programs. The updates include the most requested feature enhancements for our customers.

    In this issue we are featuring a new version of Auto FTP Manager for you to download and try.
    1. Auto FTP Manager
      Advanced FTP Client Helps you Schedule File Transfers and Synchronize Directories.
      What's new in version 3.32
  • Size based synchronization: A new set of Action rules enables you to synchronize local and remote folder based on file sizes.
  • Duplicate Profiles: Easily duplicate and create new Automation and Quick Connect Profiles by changing only the desired properties.
  • Convert Quick Connect Profiles: Convert any Quick Connect Profile to an Automation Profile and immediately start synchronizing folders.
  • Enhanced Backup: By default, backup now creates new compressed files or folders instead of overwriting them.

    Q&A: Tips from our Support Forum
    1. Auto FTP Manager: A few technical questions
      Q. I came across Auto Ftp Manager while looking for a solution to automating the backup of certain key files on our UNIX server through our Windows server and then onto a tape backup. I have explored the program and it seems to fit the bill. However, I had a few technical questions:
    1. Will the program work on a server with a Xeon processor running small Business Server 2000?
    2. Will the software be able to determine which file type to use? (ASCII etc)
    3. Will the Synchronize tool reliably keep a mirror copy of the working directories on UNIX (including deleting all removed files on UNIX from the windows backup directory)
    4. Will the default file type settings be sufficient for our uses since all of the key files are simple text (.c and .h files)?
    1. We have tested Auto FTP Manager on Pentium 4 with Hyper Threading, which simulates a dual processor. Therefore, Auto FTP Manager should not have a problem running on a Xeon processor.
    2. You may use the Association List in order to specify the file type to use for a particular extension. Auto FTP Manager already specifies some default settings that should be sufficient.
    3. This is possible if you correctly set the Action Rules (default settings should work). Synchronization will delete the remote file if a corresponding local file is not present and vice-versa.
    4. You can change the file type setting from the Association List. Simply add the extensions and specify the mode that you want to use.

    Featured Article : Making websites multilingual
    One of the most important things for a website is to get its message across to the widest possible audience. A majority of Internet users today are either American or European. Websites can gain a competitive edge by having multilingual versions of its content to reach out to customers who might speak a different language. Site Translator makes this possible with just a few clicks.
    Preparing to translate a website
    The Site Translation feature allows you to translate complete folder or files(s) to any of the supported languages. Before translating your website, make sure that all of your web pages are in one folder for convenience. You also need to decide on the location where you intend to save the translated folder. Site Translator allows you to translate folders present anywhere in your network, just make sure that the required permissions to access the folder are granted for the PC on which you are running the Site Translator. If you choose to translate a folder, then all its subfolders containing htm, html, asp, aspx and xml pages are automatically translated.
