Sorry, but i can't find version 6.03 on the website. It's still 4.60

Midas on 2014-07-15 09:34

FYI, Tunnelier has been renamed Bitvise SSH Client and the current third party PAF repack is v4.60 Rev 2.0 (see http://tp.vbap.com.au/download). The current upstream Bitvise SSH Client is v6.03 (changelog at http://www.bitvise.com/ssh-client-version-history). Both still freeware...

I used BitComet as the first torrent client back in the ol days.
Then uTorrent arrived, and I stuck with it for the low resource usage.

freakazoid: is there an advantage to using the portable version? I couldn't find anything on the site explaining it and the default program is natively portable.

freakazoid on 2012-06-02 20:22

webfork: Because it's their preferred portable build. Not everyone will need the full package. The lite / portable build should be sufficient for people building a website for testing locally and on the go.

olliebean on 2018-10-19 14:51

Just for clarification, is the full version portable? Because the only version labelled "portable" at the download link appears to be the lite version, without FTP or Mail.

Everything v1.4.1.935 Updated

Everything is a powerful search tool that locates files and folders by file name instantly, and includes an FTP and Web server interface. It also can search files by their contents. Unlike Windows search, Everything initially displays all files and folders on your computer. You simply type in part of the desired file name to limit what files and folders are displayed instantly. The more you type, the more specific the list becomes.

Note that the instant-search capability only works on NTFS/ReFS-formatted drives and only uses file and folder names in a file index. The program can separately catalog non-NTFS/ReFS and network servers for searching on a schedule.

I've been using PSPad for a number of years now and really like it. I find it much easier to configure and less complicated to use than Notepad++, its closest competitor. Also, it is still very much in development. Latest version, as of 12 Sep 2012 is V4.5.7 (2449) released 22 Aug 2012. It is my go-to text editor for everything.
There are a few annoying things with it however. It comes with 27 pre-installed languages which can be hidden but not uninstalled and there are only 5 slots for custom languages. I think that most people would not have a problem with that since the installed languages are the most popular but if you work in a shop using more obscure languages, you might be out of luck.

Shadeclan on 2012-09-14 13:59

I figured out how to uninstall the user-chosen (custom) languages but it takes a little work.
1: Open PSPad.ini (if you opened it with PSPad or if PSPad is running, save it as something else).
2: Delete the UserHighLighterName# value / data pair where the language is listed (the crosshatch is either null or a number between 1 and 4).
3: Delete the language key and all value / data pairs appertaining to it.
4: If PSPad is running, close it - then replace the PSPad.ini file with your changes. Voila! Your user-selected language slot is ready for another language!
I have posted a request to add a mechanism to do this automatically on the PSPad forum which is very active and the author of the software posts often - not what you'd expect from "dead" software.
BTW: Be cautious about using the installer - it seems to have had some problems. Use the zip file instead and unpack the files to a folder of your choice.

Shadeclan on 2012-09-14 14:46

If it's ok, I'd just like to make a few more comments:
Viniciusban writes that PSPad has no comment-out tool. I don't know if that was true when he posted, but it has one now:
Format menu / Add/Remove Comment.

Webfork writes that it has trouble handling Very Large Files (VLF). In my experience, there are only a very few editors that can handle VLFs without absorbing all available RAM and none of them (with the possible exception of UltraEdit) is as full-featured as PSPad IMHO. If I must view / edit a VLF, I always use HiEditor from WinASM.net as it is made specifically to work on VLFs without hosing the computer. Unfortunately, it isn't offered on PortableFreeware.com but it is completely portable, writes all settings to an INI file and is very fast.

Tom mentions that the "stable" version is 4.5.4. Currently it is 4.5.6 and was uploaded about 11 months ago. Beta version, available from the forum and updated August 2012, is very stable - if the latest version is wanted, grab it from there.

PSPad has its problems but they all do - that's why there isn't just a single text editor that everybody uses. While Notepad++ is (undeniably) the most popular text editor for programmers, I find its interface somewhat obscure and its learning curve a bit too steep to make it useful to me. PSPad's interface is much cleaner and simpler and, if I don't use it for months at a time, I can come back to it without worrying about relearning anything - that's why PSPad is my text editor of choice.

EagleGet 2.0.4.60 is the last clean version without lum_sdk32.dll / Luminati SDK malware bundled. Even the portable version of the newest EagleGet 2.0.4.70 comes with a malicious .dll file which allows user computers to act as a botnet. A botnet is a number of Internet-connected devices, each of which is running one or more bots. Botnets can be used to perform distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS attack), steal data, send spam, and allows the attacker to access the device and its connection.

Luminati SDK is a part of the Luminati Network, a company that bundles and monetize legit software with ads.

@Diskatom: They have removed the Luminati DLL as of v2.0.4.80 (my download of v2.0.4.90 was clean, and the decision is now mentioned at the bottom of the forum post you linked).

Note that v2.0.4.90 is available but they have not updated the download link. Here is a working link for now http://dl.eagleget.com/latest/EagleGetProtable_2.0.4.90.zip

Diskatom on 2018-11-08 09:26

@ashghost

Nevertheless, the new version 2.0.4.90 comes with a ad-banner so this should be considered adware and not free & clean anymore.

SmartSniff v2.29

billon on 20 Aug 2018
  • 135KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 24 Jul 2018
  • Suggested by milentechie

SmartSniff is a network analysis/diagnostic tool that allows you to capture TCP/IP packets that pass through your network adapter. You can view the captured data as sequence of conversations between clients and servers in ASCII mode (for text-based protocols, like HTTP, SMTP, POP3 and FTP) or as hex dump (for non text-based protocols, like DNS).

On Win2K or above, SmartSniff is able to capture TCP/IP packets using raw sockets. This method has some limitations and problems, but it does not require any additional installation. A better way to capture TCP/IP packets is to install the open-source WinPcap capture driver, functional on Windows 98 and later.

I've been using Uniform Server for a few years now and I really like it. With windows 7 there does seem to be an issue with stopping and starting the services for some reason. You can get around it by uninstalling the services through the right-click option on the tray menu icon but it won't work through the apanel web interface.
Even with that problem I am still too hooked on Uniform Server to even try anything else.

It only recovers passwords from email clients, and does not look for product keys. recALL recovers passwords from many different classes of program and also finds license keys.

Nothing to see here. There are far better, completely freeware text editors out there. First that comes to mind is Notepad++, which also has its own plugin system.

For those of you that want something even better, there's Atom, from the developers behind Github. Portable, modern interface, and fully extensible. I don't think you can ask for better.

Duplicati v1.3.4

billon on 3 Jul 2017
  • 24MB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by procyon

Duplicati is a feature-rich backup client that allows user store compressed, encrypted backups locally or on a variety of remote services. The program can save bandwidth and disk writes by only backing up the parts of a file that have changed since the last backup. It can backup open/running programs, on demand or scheduled, and can run in the background with bandwidth and process priority limits to avoid interfering with other applications. Includes support for backups to Amazon S3, Windows Live SkyDrive, Google Drive (Google Docs), Rackspace Cloud Files or WebDAV, SSH and FTP.

Note: As portable software, it necessarily does not run at system startup so the available scheduling tools cannot function unless the program is actually running. To manually run a backup, just start the wizard and select "Run a backup immediately".

Cross platform (Mac/Linux) with available command-line tools.

Sadly, that's pretty common nowadays.

A lot of Nirsofts great tools are labeled als hacking software by numerous AntiVirus Apps (e.g. Trend Micro). Thus trying to block them. It's always a pain in the ass.

But not much you can do about it.

It's not really a false positive either - since those tools ARE sort of hacking tools. But the tools themselves do nothing harmful per se.

Great for small companies and intranets. If you are on a network with a lot of people sharing a lot of files without much control over that, it can be hard to track down the information you need. This lets you find what you need across multiple shares on multiple computers.

As an additional information, 7plus supports running in portable mode by running it with "-portable" command line. Admin permissions are requested on startup by default, but 7plus will also run without them and you can disable the elevation dialog in the settings, at the cost of some missing features.

i.FTP is indeed portable. it doesnt have the ability to see symbolic link directories on the remote server. it thinks they are files. its annoying that when you select port 22 that it doesnt auto-detect that its FTP over SSH. i cant use this piece of junk. FileZilla is way better.

Very basic but you might want to add it to your collection. Filezilla can't handle certain public wifi setups whereas i.FPT can.

I realize I'm pretty late with this comment, but I've discovered a couple of annoying bugs in version 2.21 (which I've reported to the author), and eliminated them by downgrading to 2.11. Otherwise this is a very nice FTP client; portable, nicely laid out, and easy on resources.

An excellent basic HTML editor for new and intermediate Web page authors. Although the program has a few bugs here and there, it is easily one of the best free (non-text only) Web page editors available. Its cross-platform nature (windows, linux, mac) means you'll be able to edit your files no matter where you are.

Because NVU was never updated after its initial creation, a successor with some bug fixes and additional features is the also portable KompoZer: http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=1209

An excellent program for quickly and simply uploading data with a built-in zip feature. When working on mission critical work, you simply drag-and-drop to quickly save a zipped copy. The only option for Windows similar to the OS X "Transmit" dashboard apps.

Unfortunately lacks any security or advanced FTP functions.

Webfork, HFS does provide upload features...

marcoc, not ftp, web based only.

Although a great program to transfer a few files over the network, this program failed when transferring very large (over a gig) files over a network. I recommend instead Filezilla Server included in XAMPP (http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=1069.

Working link: http://sourceforge.net/projects/ftpserv

This project has not been updated since late 2003. This *may* mean there are unpatched security vulnerabilities. Use at your own risk or for temporary transfers. Consider the super-simple Baby FTP Server
http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=449 or the non-portable Filezilla Server http://filezilla.sf.net

In fact, as a long-time user of TypSoft FTP server for quick temporary transferts, I reverted to version 1.00 because 1.10 and the short lived 1.11 patch ( TypSoft site was hijacked shortly after its release ) had problems if you did not have a genuine FTP client for browsing, while 1.00 still allows explorers and firefoxes as clients.
