WS_FTP Question (3 posts)

    Hello, I just purchased a iMac and will be using Fetch; is there any way I can import the WS_FTP.ini file from WS_FTP into the Fetch application?

    This has been an option when I have changed computers before.

    Thanks, Steve

    Hi Steve,

    No, I'm sorry, we don't currently have a way to import the WS_FTP.ini file.

    However, I believe - from doing a little research, I haven't actually tried this - it is a plain text file, so if you copy it over to your Mac and open it in a text editor (such as TextEdit), you can see the list of hostnames and usernames that you've set up for each saved connection, and refer to the contents of the file to create Fetch shortcuts with the same information.

    I realize that's not much of a solution, but it might be better than trying to look at two different screens to copy the information.

    Please let us know if you have further questions.

    Thanks,
