High-performance and Reliable

LionFTP uses the high-performance Ultimate FTP and Ultimate SFTP as the core libraries to transfer files, making file transfer fast and reliable. For some reason if your connection is broken LionFTP automatically reconnects to the server and resume the interrupted transfer. As a benefit your files are still transferred completely even when your connection is intermittently broken.

Virtually Detect and Parse any FTP and SFTP Directory Listing Format

There are a wide range of FTP listing formats and writting a program from scatch that supports almost all of them may be a nighmare. But dont worry our component can accurately detect and parse virtually any common FTP listing formats. In addition if you find a rare listing format, you can handle the ListItemReceived item to implement a custom FTP listing parser.


You can configure LionFTP to use up to 10 background workers to transfer files simultaneously. As a result your files get transferred approximately 3 times faster than transferring files one by one.

Authentication Methods

In addition to basic username/password authentication LionFTP also supports the following authentication:

  • User, password, account (FTP)
  • Client certificate (FTP)
  • Public key authentication (SFTP)

Firewall and Proxy

In addition to HTTP, Socks4, Socks4A and Socks5 proxy servers support, LionFTP also lets you connect to your FTP servers through FtpSite, FtpUser, and FtpOpen proxy server types.
