New Product


Xceed FTP for Xamarin works with all FTP server types and comes with built-in support for Unix, VMS, AS/400, Windows and DOS. It supports all major FTP operations and includes an implementation of FTP and FTPS protocols. It also includes built-in Zip/Unzip features and strong encryption.

  • RFC 959, 1123, and 1579 compliant.
  • Supports FTPS (secure FTP over SSL).
  • Supports the FEAT command (also known as the “Knowledge of Extra Capabilities”).
  • Supports MLST and MLSD commands for precise interpretation of filenames, dates and other file info.
  • Supports FXP server-to-server file transfers.
  • FXP over SSL/TLS.
  • Supports MODE Z data transfer.
  • Supports secure FTP via SSL 3.0 and 3.1 (TLS) in both the FtpClient and FileSystem interfaces.
  • Supports TLS 1.2 encryption.
  • Supports the CCC command and provides a property designed to make connecting to servers behind firewalls more easy.
  • Enables connections to FTP servers through HTTP proxy servers.
  • Solid, built-in support for various server types, including Unix, VMS, AS/400, and DOS.
  • Supports all major FTP operations and allows sending of custom commands.
  • Supports FTP passive mode for firewall and proxy server resilience.
  • Send and receive files, folders, or entire directory structures quickly and easily.
  • Send and receive files to or from disk or memory streams.
  • Support for non-blocking (asynchronous) FTP operations.
  • Operations can be aborted at any time.
  • Provides a rich set of events to keep your application notified of all FTP activity.
  • Allows you to verify at any time the exact state of the component, including whether it is connected or not, busy or not, sending, receiving, deleting, etc.
  • Obtain a detailed listing of files on the FTP server via a collection object or by events.
  • Rename and delete files on the FTP server.
  • Resume file transfers from any byte offset.
  • Provides status report events on a file-by-file basis as well as on the entire operation being performed.
  • Status reports include various completion percentages, byte counts, file counts, bytes per second, bytes skipped, number of files skipped, and more. Displaying a progress bar could not be easier.
  • Events are triggered for all major operations, such as whenever a file is being sent, received, listed, etc.
  • When sending multiple files and an error occurs, allows you to retry the file, skip it and continue, or abort the entire operation.
  • Provides complete file information for the file currently being processed.
  • Exposes Xceed’s flexible FileSystem object model for deep integration with Xceed Zip for Xamarin. Lets you work with files and folders on an FTP server as if they were local.
  • Built-in data compression capabilities and AES encryption thanks to the Xceed FileSystem Core. Includes all Xceed Zip for Xamarin capabilities. No additional learning curve or effort.
  • Abstracts files and folders on FTP sites and locally, in Zip and Tar archives, in GZipped files, in streams, in memory, etc. So you can write your code as if it works with regular files or folders. When support is added for more archive types and locations, there’s no need to change your code in order to work with the new file and folder types or locations.
  • It even optimizes operations so that you can perform feats such as speedily accessing files located in a Zip archive on a remote FTP server, while using astonishingly low bandwidth. No other Xamarin component or combination of components can accomplish this.
  • Creates filters so you can send or receive only files that fit specific criteria such as file size or date.
  • Allows you to rename or change filenames and paths before sending.
  • Automatic logging to memory or to disk.
  • Three “Quick” classes provide static methods that let you perform FTP, Tar, and GZip operations with a single line of code: QuickFtp, QuickTar, and QuickGZip. These new classes accompany and complement the currently available QuickZip and QuickCompression classes.
  • Use the automatic directory listing parser or create your own custom parser for unknown listing formats and FTP server types. You can do this in two ways: through inheritance or by handling an event.
  • Set a timeout limit on all operations and have an exception triggered if it is exceeded.
  • Send a file to an FTP server and have the server give it a unique filename.
  • Can send files as ASCII or Binary.
  • Triggers an event if the connection to the FTP server is lost.
  • Allows you to change the user that is currently logged in without disconnecting.
  • Built-in tweaks for working with non-standard FTP server types, including settable FTP server folder separator character, storage pre-allocation, and TYPE command sending.
  • Specify an FTP server by IP address or host name.
  • Specify files to send or receive using wildcards.
