Fetch 5.5 supports FTP, SFTP, FTP with TLS/SSL (FTPS), and FTP with Kerberos connections. Fetch is the only Macintosh FTP client to support all the major file transfer security standards: SFTP, SSL, and Kerberos.
You can enter the connection information for a server in the New Connection dialog, or choose a server from the Recent Connections or Shortcut menu. Fetch automatically detects and lists FTP and SFTP servers available via Bonjour (Rendezvous).
Quickly access frequently used servers and fill out the New Connection dialog automatically by creating shortcuts. Shortcuts are displayed in several convenient locations — the Fetch Shortcuts window, the Shortcuts menu, and the Shortcuts pop-up menu of the New Connection dialog.
