What's new in version 2.1 ?

DirectFTP is a cross-platform, easy to use Scripting Xtra for Macromedia Director, Authorware and Shockwave, which provides implementation of the FTP protocol.

FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. It provides a standard method for transferring files between different computers.

By using DirectFTP Xtra, Director, Authorware and Shockwave applications can log into an FTP server, get directory listings and files information, retrieve files, upload files and perform other file and directory operations, such as create, move, rename, append and delete files or directories.

DirectFTP Xtra is available for Director 5 and above, Authorware 4 and above, and is compatible with Windows 9X and newer (including 2000, ME, NT, XP) as well as MacOS 8, 9 and X.

DirectFTP Xtra is Shockwave safe, so it can also be used with Shockwave 7 or later and when safety features in Director are turned on.
When the Xtra is in safe mode it can upload and download files through a built-in file selection dialog box from/to anywhere in the local machine, or without dialog boxes from/to the Shockwave support folder (DswMedia folder).

An auto downloadable Shockwave safe package of DirectFTP Xtra is also available. It is a compressed, small sized (about 30K) version of the Xtra, that can be downloaded automatically from a web site to the user's local machine whenever needed, and once installed provides Shockwave applications on the web with FTP capabilities.

DirectFTP Xtra is fully compliant with RFC 959.
