CuteFTP provides an effective way of synchronizing local and remote folders using its synchronization tool. Simply drag files between two open file explorer windows, and the software will make them identical on both computers in real-time – any changes made locally will instantly reflect on a remote server.

Filtering transfers is also supported by the synchronization tool, giving you control over which files are transferred or not. This feature can be particularly helpful when sending large files over an FTP server as it helps avoid any unnecessary transfers and save bandwidth; you could filter out duplicates that are similar in size or date of modification for instance. Furthermore, CuteFTP offers the renaming function which helps distinguish identical files: either keep both identical files or give one of them a numeric value to distinguish it from its neighbor(s).

CuteFTP offers support for several FTP protocols as well as SFTP and WebDAV, along with advanced file compare features that detect changes between two files to help make sure they have been implemented into the latest version of each file.

Multiple connections

It can also perform site synchronizations as well as backup/recover local folders automatically.

CuteFTP also supports multiple connections, enabling you to upload large volumes of data quickly in short periods. This feature can increase transfer speeds up to 300% or more compared to older versions of CuteFTP and other FTP clients; however, be mindful of limited computer resources or slow hardware as these could limit concurrent transfers.

If you encounter an error message that states “Cannot establish data socket,” this could be caused by either your computer or server being limited in some way. Check to make sure the Host Address, User Name and Password in the connection bar are exactly those supplied by the server administrator; alternatively some servers may be configured to decline PASV mode data connections in which case you must change CuteFTP default settings to Port mode in CuteFTP to resolve.

Simply access Tools in the menu bar, select Global Options and navigate to Transfer node within Global Options dialog box, clearing Allow transfers over an existing browse session checkbox will likely resolve the problem.
