A smart browser-dependent FTP/SFTP client handy for synchronizing files between directories in a quick and straightforward manner
If you want to keep data on a server and share that with one or multiple clients over a secure network, the FTP/SFTP communication protocol is best suited for this type of task. SyncBelt is a smart and versatile FTP client that provides swift file transfer and synchronization between your folders.
Browser-based FTP/SFTP client
The launching pad for SycnBelt is a simple browser, but there is no connection to the cloud, even if the interface might suggest that. You can use Firefox, Chrome, or Microsoft Edge, and these being among the most popular, it shouldn’t be an issue. After the installation is over, SyncBelt should automatically start. In case it doesn’t, write this in your browser: http://localhost:2350 or http://127.0.0.1:2350.
Create projects in a jiffy
Projects are the basis of any transfer you wish to perform. In order to create a project, one has to select the origin and destination directories. Depending on their location, one can use the FTP, SFTP, or Local protocols. Jot down the address and port ID, a username, and a password, and you are set.
To ensure maximum efficiency, you can test your connection first, verifying if the settings are in order and if the sync can be done smoothly. Before saving a project, make sure you take a gander at the additional options found by scrolling down. You can set filters that would highlight a file by its modification date and file size, or decide on skipping a file based on rules, as well as for deciding what to do with orphaned items in the destination folder.
All in all
SyncBelt looks like a decent FTP client, with a browser-based UI. Even if there is nothing unique about an FTP app, SyncBelt manages to present itself as a very simple tool to take advantage of, unlike some clients that scare away beginner or not-so-savvy users.
