Interarchy is a FTP client for macOS supporting FTP, SFTP, SCP, WebDAV and Amazon S3. It is made by Nolobe and supports many advanced features for transferring, syncing and managing files over the Internet.

Interarchy was created by Mac programmer Peter N Lewis in 1993 for Macintosh System 7.[1] Lewis went on to form Stairways Software in 1995 to continue development of Interarchy. In 2007 Lewis sold Interarchy to Matthew Drayton of Nolobe who continues to develop Interarchy to this day.[2] Drayton was an employee of Stairways Software having worked as a developer of Interarchy alongside Lewis since 2001.

Interarchy was originally called Anarchie because it was an Archie client. The name was changed to Interarchy in 2000 due to a conflict with a cybersquatter.[3]
