I know this was an old thread, but I'd like to continue the discussion
a bit. The site license that CIT purchased for FTP Voyager was for two
years, so the 2001-2002 academic year is still covered.
Rhino Software has release FTP Voyager 8, and has complicated the
default interface. As we look to build the default configuration of
this package, I'm open to suggestions to make it more usable.
For example, I often suggest closing the local and log windows (and
now some other pieces, too) to leave what look like a Windows Explorer
window browsing a remote drive. Other suggestions?
I haven't built the UVM installer yet (that's why I'm asking for
suggestions). YOu can download the installer at
ftp://cit.uvm.edu/pub/ftp/ftpvoyager/ftpvsetup.exe> and give it a
whirl. Let me know what you think.
