Threads settings

Using threads option you will be able to obtain maximal speed and reliability of uploading process. This option allows you to set maximal number of uploading threads, connection timeout, attempts count.

Increasing or decreasing number of threads will effect on upload speed and on connection stability.

Connection timeout is a time in sec. between connection attempts (by default 30 sec.), for example if connection failed, AWSU will automatically reconnect after 30 sec. by default.

Attempt count parameter is a number of attempts to reconnect, for example AWSU will automatically reconnect 5 (by default) times, if connection failed.

Time difference settings

Time difference is a parameter which reflects difference between your local computer's time and server's time in mins. For example if you live in France and wish to upload files to remote server in Russia (time difference between Russia and France is 2 hours or 120 mins.), your time difference settings must be "120" mins. If you live in Russia and wish to upload files to remote server in France, your time difference settings must be "-120" mins. Also you can use auto time difference adjustment which will allow AWSU automatically adjust time difference.

Compare with settings

Compare with option will allow you to set comparing files method. You can set comparing with files on the server method if you wish AWSU before uploading files to the server will compare them with files on the server and will upload only files are newer then on the server. If you set compare with previous state of local files, AWSU before uploading files to the server will compare them with their previous state and will upload only files are newer then on the server

Use remote directory cache

This option will allow AWSU to create a cache file with state of all files on remote directory on the server, which will decrease upload time. How it works: before every uploading process AWSU scanning remote directory and get information about the number and attributes of files. This process takes a lot of time. Using remote directory cache AWSU for the first time will scan remote directory and will write information about the number and attributes of files to special cache file situated on your local computer. After that, on every upload AWSU will get information about files on the remote server from the cache file, there isn't need to scan remote folder every time - it will decrease upload time, will save your time and money on connection.

Allow delete files from server

This option enables/disables AWSU overwrite alert

Additional FTP settings

What is a proxy server?

A proxy server is a kind of buffer between your computer and the Internet resources you are accessing (Web sites, FTP archives etc.). The data you request come to the proxy first, and only then it transmits the data to you.

Why I need to use proxy servers?

  • Transfer speed improvement. If the file you requested was received before to your proxy server, then proxy server will interrupt this file request and you will receive the file directly from proxy. However need to know, you can got the "speed down" effect. This effect appears when your proxy has long answer time because there is slow connection between you and your proxy server.
  • Security and privacy. Anonymous proxies destroys information about your computer in the requests header. So you can safely surf the net and your information will never be used by hackers and spammers.
  • Sometimes you encounter some problems while accessing to web server. You have mistaken while working with some data and / or the server administrator restricted access from your IP. So you can use the anonymous proxy and try to access again.

    FTP proxy server parameters:

  • Proxy server is a name of your proxy server.
  • User name and password are used in order to connect to your proxy server. It could be different from the username/password for your web server.
  • Port is the port of the proxy server. Normally it's 21, and you don't need to change it.
