Getting AmiFTP

The current version of AmiFTP is 1.843.

AmiFTP is no longer shareware, it's more like freeware. The documentation in the release archive still says it's shareware but this note overrides that documentation. Use one of the methods below to get it (the archive is ~177KB):

*AmiFTP-1.843.lha (via HTTP from Sweden)
*AmiFTP-1.843.lha (via FTP from Sweden)

AmiFTP needs ClassAct and beginning with version 1.797 ClassAct is no longer included in the AmiFTP-archive. You can get the latest verison of ClassAct from or

Important! I really recommend 68000-users to get the latest ClassAct-archive since a bug in penmap.image has been fixed.

If you're running OS 3.x make sure you use SetPatch 40.16.

Version history

Beginning with this version ClassAct will no longer be included in the archive. ClassAct is used by so many programs now so you probably already have it. If not, go to .

Not all language catalogs have been updated.

Sometimes you had to press HELP two times in order to get the online help. Fixed now.

Speedbar added, and preferences to turn on/off the speedbar and the normal buttons.

AmiFTP starts even if no TCP/IP-stack is running.

You can now select files by entering a AmigaDOS-pattern (in the Files-menu).

You can use the cursor keys to scroll the filelist. (and use shift/alt to scroll a page/go to top/bottom).

Various minor things fixed.

Version 1.607 (released 1996-07-01) Due to a bug in current penmap.image, AmiFTP won't work on AmigaOS 2.x, but when penmap.image has been fixed it will.

Minor bugs fixed.
