You can connect to HTTP servers with CuteFTP Professional. If you have the appropriate permissions, you can browse contents, download, upload and delete files on HTTP sites.
From the menu, select File > New > HTTP Site. The Site Properties dialog box appears.
Enter an identifying name for the site in the Label field.
Enter the HTTP site’s address in the Host address field. Prefixing the HTTP site address with http:// is not necessary.
If the site uses basic HTTP username/password authentication, fill in your user name and password in the appropriate fields. Notice that under the Type tab, the site has been automatically set up as an HTTP site.
If the Web site operates on a port other than 80, enter the appropriate port number in the Port field. Most sites connect to port 80. If the last portion of the site’s URL ends in a number, that number is the port to use. For example, http://www.example.com:99 indicates that the Web server www.example.com operates on port 99. The remainder of the tabs and fields are identical to those seen when adding an FTP site.
SelectConnect to establish the connection.
CuteFTP takes advantage of the keep-alive header (as defined in RFC 2068 & 2616) which keeps the session open during multiple transactions, saving the user considerable time and bandwidth.
