Default REQ: Support for Amazon S3 - fxp?

Hi

A feature that I would like is as follows:

1) support to access Amazon S3 buckets for ftp

2) Assuming (1) is implemented - ability to transfer files from a server to Amazon S3 directly like fxp

Not sure if this is possible but it would be a great feature.

I am testing S3 for delivery of large Video files and most current tools upload from your computer and my upload bandwidth is not that great.

Thanks
Wayne

Amazon's S3 service does not provide FTP access. S3 service is based around WebDav protocol, an extension to HTTP.

There are command line tools that allow you to upload stuff into S3 buckets, so you can run them directly from the server that has your files.

If people wanted command line tools they probably would not be using a windows based ftp program would they?

Obviously it would be a new feature to be written in, thus this is the request.

This is why developers do not make good sales people.

No, you don't need that. Stop asking. Want more features too bad. Our software is perfect and we will not accept any requests or critical judgements against it..

Simply ridiculous.

JungleDisk used to be great software which allowed for this but they changed their model to a subscription based service. Rather than a one time $30 fee. I have not looked for a substitute but hopefully there are alternatives.

FTP to Amazon S3 is not possible, it would need to be uploaded directly from your computer.

Amazon S3 support will be considered for future releases.

YOUR reply is simply ridiculous!
I'm not a developer and not a sales person. i don't work for flashfxp.
I did not say or even implied that he does not need this feed or to stop asking!
I simply stated the current situation and since flashfxp does not support it, alternative solutions to his problem!
why don't you triple re-read what was asked and what i answered!

if you are in a bad mood, keep it off this forum!

I'd love to see Amazon S3 support. Transmit for Mac OS used to be a very limited FTP client - but has become much more powerful. I need to use similar tools in Windows.

I came here to comment about Transmit. I do not use Mac but I thought it was cool they came out with it. It is very forward thinking. However paid members or shareware I do not forsee any revolutionary changes coming out with FlashFXP in the future and development pretty much seems dead. No dates are posted (perhaps I missed it) in the version history area.

You couldn't be more wrong and other people on this forum will confirm that bigstar have been releasing beta builds, 4-8 new builds per month. Development and testing is going on full throttle.

Now, you've been using FlashFXP for at least last 6 years, how about you finally buy a license?
