WebDrive is more than just an FTP Client. By connecting to WebDAV, FTP, or SFTP servers through a virtual drive, files are transferred by simply saving them to a drive letter. There's no need to run a separate FTP client interface. Unlike typical FTP clients, WebDrive lets you open and edit server-based files without the additional download step.
WebDrive has built-in support for the industry standard SSL protocol. When used in conjunction with secure WebDAV, FTP 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 even 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.
WebDrive Site Manager
Use the site manager to define the servers you wish to map to drive letters. 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. This is functionality not available in typical FTP software. [screenshot]
WebDrive supports WebDAV, the Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning protocol. WebDAV enables collaboration on a centrally located set of files. WebDAV is also more firewall friendly than other protocols. By mapping a drive letter to a WebDAV server, WebDrive allows you to lock files, modify them, and then release the locks so that others can view and edit. By using WebDAV locking concepts, WebDrive ensures data integrity.
Because WebDrive can connect to FTP, SFTP and WebDAV servers, uses can store, access and collaborate on files in many locations – though the familiar interface of a drive letter.
