SFTP performance

Forklift 2 ist super für SFTP via WLAN. Übertrifft Cyberduck oder Transmit um einen Faktor 4 in der Übertragungsrate. Allein dafür lohnt sich diese inzwischen kostenlose App. Und es läuft hier unter High Sierra völlig problemlos. Hört sich jetzt vielleicht an wie ein "One-Trick Pony” - das kommt aber nur daher, dass ich die anderen Funktionen nicht beurteilen kann, da ich das tool nur für Dateitransfers via SFTP benutze.

Tolle Ergänzung zum Finder

Ich bin noch aus DOIS Zeiten den guten alten Norton Commander gewohnt und habe unter Windows immer den Total Commander verwendet, jetzt unter OSX habe ich noch nicht das passende gefunden, aber Firklift ist zumindest schon mal eine gute Ergänzung zum Finder.

Einmal benutzt und wieder gelöscht!

Leider keine alternative zu FileZilla. Nach erstmaliger benutzung hat sich das Program beim Verzeichnis öffnen aufgehangen. Und das war eines der kleinsten Verzeichnisse auf meinen Servern. Echt schade. Ich bleibe bei FileZilla.
