CrushFTP 4 Server

Normally: $60.00

CrushFTP4 is a powerful file server well ahead of its time. Not only does it handle serving FTP, but it also does SFTP (SSH FTP), FTPS (FTP over SSL), HTTP, HTTPS, WebDAV, and WebDAV SSL. From that list you can see it is serious about security and encryption. The ‘Crush’ in CrushFTP comes from its ability to compress transfers on the fly seamlessly making for faster transfers!

In about 10 clicks you can be up and running with a powerful FTP server, HTTP server, HTTPS server, and WebDAV server, with your first user created and ready to login!

Use the Finder to Upload / Download / Everything
WebDAV allows you to use the OS X Finder to connect to the server and work on it as if it were another hard drive on your machine. Read, write, rename, etc. all with WebDAV. Normally the Finder is read only when using FTP, so WebDAV is a welcomed addition.

Advanced Web Browser File Management
The built in fully customizable WebInterface allows you to present a website to customers so they can easily upload files to you, or download files to you. It has support for drag and drop uploading on the website, as well as the ability to upload folders while zipping them on the fly. It will even automatically resume a transfer should the network connection die in the middle, or the user closed their browser. This is by far the easiest way to receive uploads from your clients. This saves time and bandwidth. Or you can use the browser uploader which uses AJAX to queue up file transfers and submit them all at once. Either way, you get real-time feedback on the upload progress, speeds, and estimated time remaining… all things you can’t get normally.

Email Notifications
Easily setup emails to come to you when a user uploads a file. Did the user upload 50 files? Don’t want 50 emails? Not a problem. CrushFTP will build one email with all 50 items listed in it… even if they used a client that logged in with 10 connections to do the uploads!

Configure
CrushFTP is easy to configure. You can drag and drop folders on a user to grant them access to the folder. The user will then only be able to access that folder. Not like OS X where they can browse around outside their home folder.

Want to add SFTP to your server? Its just 5 clicks away. Click preferences.(1) Click add.(2) Enter a port for it to run on, click OK.(3) Click the SFTP server type.(4). Click OK to close the preferences.(5) literally that’s how easy it is to configure things in CrushFTP. All the hard work is done for you.

Tons of Plugins
The plugin support for CrushFTP allows for a whole new set of expandable features. One example allows you to make users by “creating a folder”. That’s all. You create a folder with a specific name, and a user with that name can then login with access to only that folder! You can’t get any easier than that. Right now all plugins to CrushFTP are free. Here are just a few of the plugins :
CrushSQL (use SQL tables to load your users from)
MagicDirectory (make a directory, and a user can login)
WebStatistics (OS X widget to monitor your server)
AutoUnzip (decompresses .zip files when a user uploads them)
LaunchProcess (launch external actions on uploaded files)
HomeDirectory (make a user, and their home folder and permissions are created automatically)
CrushLDAP (use ActiveDirectory, or LDAP to load your users from)
BlockContent (only allow files with specific extensions)

Preview User’s Access
Scared about giving users access to your computer? You can “preview” what the user will see with the user manager. You can control the access to every file or folder so there is no confusion on what a user can or can’t do. Once a user has logged in, you can monitor what they are doing with the CrushFTP interface. See which directories they access, what files they download, and upload.

OS X Widget
The included CrushFTP widget allows you to monitor your server with the press of a button. See a real-time snap shop of who’s connected, what files have just been accessed, a whole summary of what your server is doing.

Training Videos & Documentation
Free training videos showcasing various features of CrushFTP are available on CrushFTP’s homepage. Additionally, should you have questions or concerns, you have direct email access to the developer who will respond to questions very quickly.

FileChute – email large files

Normally: $14.95

ZOT Price: $9.95

Click to MacZOT Try Now  

How many times have you tried sending a large file as an email attachment
only to have it bounced? If you want to send large files but don’t
want to have to explain how to access your FTP server or .Mac iDisk to
each and every of your recipient, FileChute just might be the answer.

FileChute makes sending large (or small) files easy. Just drag-and-drop
the file you wish to send. FileChute puts the file on your .Mac account
and generates a URL (aka a web link) for retrieving the file.
Drag-and-drop the link into your email and send it off. That’s it.
And since what you’re sending is just a link, your recipients
can retrieve the file from a Mac, a PC or any other platform.

You can even drop multiple files and/or folders at once. FileChute
automatically creates an archive in the format of your choice – it
supports dmg, zip and tar – and sends the archive file.

FileChute works best with a .Mac account, configuration is super easy.
But since not everyone has a .Mac account, FileChute also works
great with other FTP or WebDAV-accessible web server. Perform the
one-time set up by following the built-in Help. Once it is properly
set up, FileChute works just as perfectly with non-.Mac servers.

Still not convinced? Here’s what our users say

Dan Frakes on MacWorld Mac Gems:”…and if you frequently send larger files to others across the Internet, it’s the easiest solution I’ve seen…”

gulliver on VersionTracker:”I just tried this out last night,
and I am so hooked. Rarely have I seen such a perfect little app,
I can’t think of what could be improved.”

sinemacula on VersionTracker:”Very nice little app – does what it says and does it well. I particularly like the built-in ability to get a short download url via snipurl – very cool indeed!”

iForm

Normally: $45.00

ZOT Price: $22.50

Click to MacZOT Try Now  



Purpose

iForm is a program by Limit Point Software that you use to serve and process HTML forms. Its basic functionality can be used to collect form data submitted by a web browser and then email that data using formatting templates to select recipients, as well as saving it to a text log file which can be imported into a database. But there’s more!

iForm provides the ability to limitlessly extend its basic functionality using AppleScript. You can use the AppleScript support to interact with other scriptable applications when a form is submitted, and you can also use it to provide logic and customization when composing form submission response pages and email messages. The sample iForm projects which are part of the software distribution demonstrate these extensions.

Feature Highlights

  • Does not require a web server because it can serve its own forms using the integrated web server.

  • Processes form submissions with fully customized response pages, error replies, email messages and log entries.

  • Emailer supports SMTP authentication, multiple file attachments of any type and “plain text alternatives” using multi-part mime messages.

  • Template mechanism featuring support for embedded AppleScripts enabling dynamic and multipart form submissions.

  • Logs all activity to a plain text file and monitor window.

  • Logs each form submission to its own customizable log file, say for import to a database.

Mailings and iForm

You can use iForm to implement a form which collects email addresses for a mailing list, and then distribute newletters, product announcments, etc. to that list with Mailings. Refer to the Tour Sample for an illustration of how this is done with the help of Apple’s (scriptable) Address Book.

JumpStart Tutorial

A set of sample projects that introduce you to the major features of iForm, using a hands-on tutorial approach, is available. To access the tutorials select “JumpStart Tutorials…” from the Help menu.

The JumpStart is highly recommended because it illustrates the various facades of iForm usage. (It also includes information not covered in the reference!)

iForm Tour

For a quick hands-on introduction please take the online Tour of iForm. The Tour is accessible from the Help menu, or directly from the following link:

iForm Tour

Most notably the Tour illustrates a “real world” application of iForm (in use by real websites) with a minimal amount of basic AppleScript mixed in.

The Tour also includes an indispensible discussion of the Preferences window, guiding you through the configuration settings of iForm.

It’s fun too!
