Pros: Ease of use, ease of installation, ease of download

Cons: NO product support. Paid my bucks 3 months ago for 1 year, now when I open it I get a message wanting me to buy now. WS_FTP will not respond to my product key code. Tech support nowhere in sight.

Overall: Works great, have used it off and on for 15 years or more. Need product support? Lotsa luck! It ain't to be found.

Pros: Good FTP client. Site management is easy because there is just one file to update to add all your sites. Site by site configuration is very handy.

Cons: Costs too much. Granted this is a one-time expense, but with the other freeware tools that are out there and using this for a work computer that regularly gets replaced and needs a new license this tool was just too much of a hassle.

Pros: How simple this software is to use. Once you log into your server for an FTP session, you click to select and click to upload or download. How simple is that? I have been using WSFTP for over 15 years with its updates and upgrades and still my go to FTP client.

Cons: I really don't have any negative things to say about this software as it hasn't given me any reason to doubt it as of yet.

Pros: I used IPSwitch WS_FTP Professional for many years, and it was easy to use and my favorite thing about it was a train noise that sounded after the file transfer was completed.

Cons: After using it for many years, it stopped working and I couldn't figure out what the problem was, and I was told I had to upgrade the version. At that point, I switched to filezilla because it was free, but I do miss that train sound.

Pros: Its the best tool out there as it has a lot of features and works fast. I have not had any issues with this software as it is truly an enterprise solution.

Cons: I would like to see a mobile app created for filezilla by IPSwitch software. This wouldnt be to transfer as much to simply be able to download and view contents for my personal media library

Pros: It is very easy to adapt to security protocols, I highly recommend its use in cPanel, it makes the transfer of files very fast.

Cons: The learning curve is a little tedious, although other free ftp systems are on the market, ws_ftp is still one of my favorite tools.

Easy to use. Support is always quick and responsive. Scripting is easy to use.

Pros: Site manager can share saved sites to network locations, customizable to different site types and security requirements.

Cons: Clearing the logs is not intuitive. No way to script out current site connection or activity. Took a little while to learn the app.

Overall: Simple, configurable, script capable.
