Overview of the Web Transfer Client

The Web Transfer Client (WTC), an optional module for EFT Server, is a browser-based file transfer client that allows users to transfer files over HTTP or HTTPS using a Web browser to and from EFT Server. The WTC is available if you have a license for the client and the client is enabled for the user in EFT Server's administration interface.

By default, the WTC automatically filters the file list and displays only the first 499 files and folders. Once that limit is reached, the WTC will prompt you to use the filter feature to find the files that you want. If 499 files and folders is not sufficient, the EFT Server administrator can change the default in the Windows registry.
