NcFTP is an FTP client program which debuted in 1990 as the first alternative FTP client. It was created as an alternative to the standard UNIX
ftp program, and offers a number of additional features and greater ease of use.
NcFTP is a command-line user interface program, and runs on a large number of platforms.
The program often provided a user's first exposure to features such as bookmarks, automatic use of binary transfers, dynamic progress meters, automatic anonymous logons, recursive downloading, resumption of failed downloads, "redialing" unresponsive hosts, use of passive transfers, and tips at start up.
