PyroBatchFTP is a software for automated file transfer via FTP and SSH/SFTP.
The program allows users and software developers to write scripts to perform
fully automated file transfers. The scripts can be scheduled to run and
will then transmit files to and from other computers which run a standard ftp
or SSH server.
Beyond the script language, PyroBatchFTP features a DDE interface and logging
functions, which allow other software to determine the success and flow of
each of the script commands. It also offers email functions, which can be used
to alert a system administrator in case of network problems or other situations
when the file transfers fail.
Standard Editon or Server Edition
There are two versions of PyroBatchFTP, the Standard Edition and the
Server Edition. It depends on your use case which one is right for you
(both have the same price and when you license the software, you can use either one).
Essentially both are the same with one difference:
The Standard Edition can also schedule PyroBatchFTP jobs, but will only run them
while the PyroBatchFTP is kept active for a logged in user.
The Server Edition installs itself as a Windows background service and it will
continue to run scheduled jobs in the background even if no user is logged into the PC
(this is typical for server machines).
Which should you use? You can try both (the price is the same and the license will work for
either), but the Standard Edition is probably the better one to get started. If you find
it too limited because your focus is on running scheduled file transfers on a computer
where no user is logged in, you can still install the Server Edition instead.
You will find both versions in our download area.
PyroBatchFTP Sample Scripts
Here is a sample of a simple PyroBatchFTP script to download a file
from a ftp server. The script creates a connection, then changes
the remote working directory and finally downloads the file and
Another example connects to a server and uploads and updates all new
and modified files from the local computer to the web server:
PutSync -rnmk "*"
