moving from PC to Mac (WS-FTP to Fetch) (2 posts)

    Has anyone ever had success porting over the .ini file from WS-FTP into Fetch. The .ini file has all my server connection configurations and data for the last 10 years and now I've switched to Mac and can't decrypt the .ini file passwords, which I always assumed would be safe and they were. Each time I upgraded I just copied over the .ini file. Sure would be nice if there were a magic solution here. Thanks

    Bill and I have already discussed this via email, but for the record, no, we're sorry, Fetch cannot import the WS_FTP .ini file, and as far as we know, WS_FTP cannot export it into any format that Fetch can read. However Bill was able to find a utility to reveal the passwords from the .ini file on the Windows side, making the transition somewhat easier.
