Cyberduck FTP Now Available For Windows

Finally an FTP program that doesn’t make me want to throw up. Cyberduck, the popular FTP client for Mac, has just released a Windows version that has exactly the same set of features as found on its Mac counterpart. As the first beta of Cyberduck, a software with dashing looks and terrific set of features, lands on Windows existing FTP programs for the Windows platform were struck with a wave of inferiority complex and panic. Cyberduck is poised to replace not only each and everyone of them but also standalone clients for Google Docs, Amazon S3 storage and a number of such web services that users might be using.


Aside from connecting to regular FTP and SFTP servers, Cyberduck can connect to any WebDAV server, as well as many popular services like Google Docs, Amazon S3, Rackspace, Windows Azure and more. If you are already using an FTP client, Cyberduck will promptly import all your bookmarks from them so that you can use it right away. Supported third party programs, the ones from where Cyberduck can import bookmarks, include Filezilla, SmartFTP, CrossFTP, CloudBerry Explorer for Amazon S3, Google Storage, Azure Blob and many more.

  1. Inexperienced user here. I can't even figure out how to connect with my Google Docs through Cyberduck. I can't find the info in any help files either. What server? What address? My Google username is an email address; do I put that as my username? Shouldn't there be a help file topic on this somewhere?

  2. Click on "Open connection" button, then from the drop-down list choose Google Docs. Type your username/password in the appropriate fields and click connect.

    The drop-down list shows FTP File Transfer Protocol by default.

  3. That did it; thanks for the information.
