Question Comments from Developers on UFXP?

Hi all,

I see that UltraFXP is out and about and while I haven't used it I see that a lot of people in certain forums are, and as this is a discussion forum I was hoping to get some feedback from the Developers of FlashFXP as to what they think of it as a program, and as competition to FlashFXP ?

So what are your comments, feeling, thoughts??

My comments:

It looks like FlashFXP
It smells like FlashFXP
It can do almost the same as FlashFXP

i'm not a developer but i can tell you that ufxp is a blatant ripoff of flashfxp.
it's name, it's original gui, layout of config menu, parts of help file word for word were ripped from flashfxp.

ufxp can do some things flashfxp can't, yet there are many things it can't do that flashfxp had for years..

it sucks that ufxp is riding on success of flashfxp w/o giving anything back, but at the same time competition is good.

Thumbs up

I don't know about all of you but, I will NEVER use another FTP program other than FlashFXP!

It's the best and it has everything that I will ever need.

Keep up the good work guys!

what can flashfxp do that ultrafxp can't?

I'm not trolling, never used ultrafxp in fact. flashfxp is stable and has a ****load of neat features that make my life easier. Just wondering.

I'd be more interested in a response to comments like this, from supporters of UltraFXP

Filezilla and this combat the total and complete evil that is FlashFXP, the software that reports to the FBI or your local government every site you store in your site manager. Live free or die!

Finally! An alternative to the tyranny and spying of Charles DeWeese and FlashDeathFXP! The word on the grapevine is that programs that are commonly used to move software are being bugged magic lantern style by the Federal Gestapo, with FlashFXP's culled data being used as evidence against several people recently in Federal Court! Beware, you may be inviting the vampire in with FLASHFXP and any of Charles DeWeese's software! Long live the alternative ;p



Of course, developers/supporters will say that flashfxp doesnt steal your sites, or anything like that, and of course anti-flashfxp will say that it does... no proof by either side to back anything up...

Not sure where they get that stuff from... Sounds to me like the developers or their friends signed up and posted stuff like that.

Flash has been around for much longer than Ultra if I'm not mistaken. The blatant similarities between the two only show that Ultra is a complete ripoff. That can be backed up if you know the history behind the two programs. The stuff you've just reposted from them, however, cannot be backed up.

And old and useless discussion. Search the board for topics about this subject and if you want a REAL proof use a real-time network sniffer, as Ethereal (I bet that 100% of those UltraFXP drunk 'supporters' don't know how to use it, but they know for sure that FlashFXP sends your sites to the WhiteHouse, FBI HeadQuarter, CIA training camp, United Nations Court, the hidden Moon base and the Simpson's house ... LOL xDD).

it's posted on betanews. there're few morons who lost their tin foil caps and think whole world is spying on them.

panurgic and thezelda among others on betanews are known warez monkies.
a while ago if flashfxp detected user tried to register with known warez key, flashfxp would open BSA webpage to educate users about software piracy.
but with each new "review" those morons progressively exaggerated this fact and turned it onto "sending sites to charles" then "sending sites to bsa" then "sending sites to fbi" then "use flashfxp to transfer 'magic lantern'"
those losers are just upset that they couldn't find working key.


as for proof...flashfxp have been around for at least 6 years, don't you think if there was anything hidden in flashfxp it wouldn't it be spotted/detected by now?
and like DYN_DaTa mentioned, if you want independent proof, see for yourself..install any network sniffer and monitor flashfxp's traffic. if you are using authentic flashfxp downloaded from it's website(and not some cracked/hacked/modified version with backdoors...i've seen a few "releases" by well known groups that backdoored flashfxp) there won't be anything but the traffic that you told it to generate.

Thanks MxxCon,

I have grown so tired of dealing with this subject. As stated above, it has been discussed many times over on this messageboard. There is really no more merit in this entire thread. I'm closing it.
