Download multiple folders/files in the web client

Post by FTP »

Web browser does not support multiple folders/files download at once, so we developed a browser extension "Wing Download Manager" for solving this problem.

How to download this extension?

Chrome or Edge users may download this extension from:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... liehkjocgk

And Firefox users may download this extension from:
https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addo ... d-manager/

This extension requires Wing FTP Server v6.5.2+. For Google Chrome, please disable the browser option "Settings -> Downloads -> Ask where to save each file before downloading". And for Microsoft Edge, please disable the browser option "Settings -> Downloads -> Ask me what to do with each download".


How to use this extension?

1. Choose files/folders in the web client by checking the left checkbox (or hold CTRL key and click the filename you want to select).

If you can't download files/folders, please check the following things:
1. Do not modify the title tag for the file "webclient/main.html", keep it as "Wing FTP Server - Web Client".
2. When using HTTPS address, please use a signed SSL certificate for the web client.
3. Please make sure you have "File Read" permission under WingFTP, and these files are not denied in file access rules.
