Why We Made SFTP Net Drive FREE for Personal Use
Our mission is to continue to be the most trusted source for communications and security software, and SFTP Net Drive is an example of that commitment. Free software can sometimes be insecure and dangerous for many reasons, from developer inexperience, lack of skill in security, to malicious intent. Like all of our products, SFTP Net Drive is built with security as a priority. We want to make sure you are using the safest software possible and making it free removes price as a factor in your decision.
Using SFTP Net Drive is simple. All you need to do is download and install the small application and specify connection parameters. The entire process from download to connection will only take minutes. Advanced operations are also conveniently available for more complex scenarios. An overview of primary concepts follows and you can read the full documentation here.
Common connection settings are available on the main screen as soon as you open SFTP Net Drive. In most cases, you will enter the server address, user, and password and connect. You can also choose from three authentication types: Password, Key-based, or both.
As mentioned above, you can use password authentication, key-based authentication, or both. Once you select the authentication type, the corresponding fields will be enabled. If you choose to use a key, you have these choices:
You can keep several profiles for different users and servers. Each profile saves connection credentials and any settings you have specified.
Many advanced settings to configure the way you connect to your server are available. These options are conveniently saved with the profile or you can specify them when using SFTP Net Drive from the command line. All are well documented.
PowerShell Server can be used to easily add secure file transfer (SFTP server) capabilities to Windows. PowerShell Server is a SFTP Server which works out of the box with minimal configuration. For advanced scenarios, control over items such as algorithms and authentication methods are supported. You can also extend functionality through custom scripts. Just like SFTP Net Drive, PowerShell Server is FREE for Personal Use. Use it with SFTP Net Drive for a complete client/server solution.
