I've been working with RhinoSoft to put together a custom installer for
UVM's FTP Voyager, and the current incarnation is available at:
The installation process is a little, err.. convoluted. But, hey, it's
better than manually registering each copy. And Ghost will take care of
most systems, anyway.
What to expect:
1. download the exe file, and then launch it.
2. the winzip self-extractor dialog will pop up
Note that is suggests NOT running the apps at the end of the
install process. I know no one will read it, but it is there.
3. click Setup
4. The Register Rhino software dialog will appear. Click register.
5. It will offer to install ftp voyager, say yes.
6. You willnow go through the usual steps. Follow the defaults until
the end, where the [x] launch ftp voyager and [x] start the ftpv
scheduler items are checked. Uncheck them.
Note: the world won't end if you run them, but the RegisterRhino
app sits in the background ti you finish. Also, the UVM site profiles
are added after the application is installed.
7. After you finish the installation (like 10 seconds or so after), you
will be prompted to install the included ftpvoyager.ftp file, which
contains the default session prfiles.
8. Click Close in the RegisterRhino app.
You should be done, now. And you should have Site Profiles for:
Banner - reuses one connection instead of spawning
Software - plain vanilla anonymous ftp
UVMVM - reuses one connection, and won't display file dates
WWW - connect to public_html and issue site chmod
Zoo - plain vanilla authenticated ftp
I know the install process seems long and involved. The advantage--that I
almost buy--is that we can drop in any new release of ftp voyager
straight from their download site and it will work with our customized
process. No long waits for the developers to create a special build.
Please let me know what you think--does it work for you? does it not? what
should be fixed? Does it install on Windows NT? 2000?
