Message window: The black message window shows the activity of the FTP scheduler and provides information to the user concering current activities, connection progress, retries, uptime and total amount of uploaded or downloaded files.Session name: FTP session information is stored in textfiles (passwords are encrypted). Session information is easily copied to a new session by changing the session name
Status: An indicator to quickly check the status of the FTP Scheduler
Watchdog: The watchdog timer will end the FTP session after the given amount of minutes has been reached. This function is useful when working with unreliable FTP servers or internet connections (like the cellular network).
FTP Server, port, login, password: The FTP parameters required to connect to the FTP server. The FTP password is not visible and will be stored in an encrypted format.
Proxy server, port, username, password: Should you be working in an environment with a proxy server, you need to provide the proxy details here. The proxy password is not visible and will be stored in an encrypted format. Proxy support is provided for http, https and the socks protocol.
Local path: The path on the local machine which contains the files to upload, when downloading the destination directory for the files to download.

Remote Path: The target directory on the FTP server for file uploads or downloads
Mirror: Before uploading the file(s) will be copied to a subdirectory 'mirror'. You can use this feature to upload the same files to a different FTP server
Stability: The JAVA FTP Scheduler has been designed to provide a stable automated FTP solution. Should an upload or download fail a retry attempt will be made the next time the session is active. Network failures have no effect on the stability of the scheduler. The FTP Scheduler uses a minimum of resources and CPU cycles.
Schedule: By enabling the scheduler you can delay upload or download sessions to a future date and time.

Tips & Tricks:
Site to Site transfers: The FTP Scheduler does not support direct site to site transfers (fxp), however you are able to create a download session to download the files to the local machine and an upload session to upload the files to a remote machine. By selecting the 'delete' option for the upload session the files will be deleted from the local machine after a successful upload.
