WebDrive: integrate your homepage and PC/Mac
« on: October 02, 2010, 05:55:58 AM »
WebDrive for Windows. Map a Windows drive letter to FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, Amazon S3, and FrontPage Servers : $69 incl 1 year of updates, $85 with 2 yrs of updates.

WebDrive for Macintosh OS/X. Mount SFTP, WebDAV, FTPS, FTP or GroupDrive Servers as a local device : $35 /1 year of updates, and $50 /2 yrs of updates.



WebDrive will integrate your homepage with your desktop, making it just another (secure) local drive. This way you can search, edit, DOS-prompt, replace, your homepage files, just as any other local drive / folder / file.


WebDrive is more than just an FTP Client.

Unlike a typical FTP client, WebDrive allows you to open and edit server-based files without the additional step of downloading the file. Using a simple wizard, you assign a network drive letter to the FTP Server. By connecting through a virtual drive, there is no need to learn a separate FTP client interface. You access and edit files on the server the same way that you interact with files on your local PC.

WebDrive is the only FTP Client that supports additional protocols such as WebDAV, SFTP, FrontPage, and Amazon S3 and maps a drive letter to each of these servers.

Please select the type of computer below to get more information and a free trial of the WebDrive FTP Client. Choose your platform... Microsoft Windows / Macintosh OS X


Simple Set-up and Configuration

The WebDrive site manager makes it easy to define your connections. Just enter the server URL and your username and password and press "connect," to map the selected drive letter to your server. You can map different directories on the same server to unique drive letters. This provides easier access to frequently updated directories. You can also map unique drive letters to different server types - one drive to an SFTP server, one to a WebDAV server and another to an FTP server or to Amazon Web Services. This functionality is not available in typical FTP software. [screenshot]

Security Features

WebDrive has built-in support for the industry standard SSL protocol. When used in conjunction with secure WebDAV, FTP, FTPS, or SFTP servers, WebDrive will open an encrypted tunnel between the client computer and the remote server; giving you secure transmission of critical data over the Internet. WebDrive can also be used as an alternative to a corporate VPN. Install the WebDrive client and an SSL enabled server, and WebDrive can act as the VPN for your company; an efficient alternative to an expensive VPN and non-secure FTP client connections.

I wrote a mini-review of webdrive in 2008: http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=13580.0
It also mentions some of the alternatives.
