Unlike a typical FTP client, WebDrive allows you to open and edit server-based files without the additional step of downloading the file. Using the simple WebDrive site profile manager, you can configure WebDrive to mount a remote FTP server as a local file system device. By connecting through a ‘virtual’ device, there is no need to learn a separate FTP client interface. You access and edit files on the server the same way that you interact with files on your local Mac.
The WebDrive site profile manager makes it easy to define your connections. Just enter the server URL and your username and password and press "mount", to mount the selected site profile to your server. You can mount different folders on the same server to unique mount points. This provides easier access to frequently updated folders. You can also mount unique volumes to different server types. This functionality is not available in typical FTP software.
