PentaFTP Enables Access to Files in Remote Compressed Archives
PentaWare Revamps FTP Program to Accommodate User Requests

LAS VEGAS, NV — (January 6, 2005) – PentaWare, Inc., announced today an innovative addition to PentaWare’s FTP program, PentaFTP. The latest version of PentaFTP has been heavily revamped and the novelty in this version (besides the overall look and feel of the program) is access to individual files contained in remote compressed archives. This allows users to access one or more specific files within a compressed archive on remote systems without having to download the entire archive first. Users will now have the ability to select a file (or files) from a complete list and download just that single file (or files) as needed. When a file (or files) on the remote system is downloaded, it will remain in its compressed form until available on the local system where the file (or files) will be restored to its original size automatically. Users are no longer required to download entire archives to get what they need. With PentaFTP users have the ability to extract, view or run only the files they need.

“Accessing files within archives stored on remote sites is something that users have been requesting for years,” said Claude Ostfeld, President and CEO of PentaWare, Inc. “PentaFTP is the first to allow users such access without requiring any additional software to be present on the remote site. We have been able to make good use of our combined knowledge of how FTP and compressed archives work which is the foundation of today’s announcement.”

PentaWare has created the ultimate means of accessing and extracting from ZIP (or LHA, ZGB, ZIP64, etc…) archives in remote locations without the need for additional software (PentaFTP is required only locally). Users need only to have access to a remote system and knowledge of where the archives they need are located and PentaFTP can access and extract the files needed.

Pricing and Availability
PentaSuite 7.5 software is available at, MSRP $99.95. PentaSuite is available in English, Spanish, French, German, and Italian.
