FTP Rush is an FTP client which provides robust features, such as, assigning custom mouse actions, built in scripts/commands, and support for SFTP and FXP (File Exchange Protocol). Other supported formats include FTP and TFTP. FTP Rush is quite similar to FileZilla. However, it’s settings appear somewhat easier to configure than the former, with the option to easily assign mouse actions for execution of common tasks according to defined parameters.
IT professionals can greatly benefit from FTP Rush by using it’s built in script and command designer to automate routine tasks. The FXP feature can be quite handy for migrating a website between two FTP servers, without the need to download content to a hard drive.

The General tab provides FTP directory caching, folder path, logging and UPNP settings, whereas, Connections tab provides configure connection time out, proxy and related settings within a list of sub-tabs.
