Running FTP Voyager Scheduler as a Service

To have FTP Voyager run scheduled transfers automatically, it should be configured to run as a system service. Otherwise, it won't start when the system is rebooted and will need to be manually started.

Rhino Software, Inc., the developer of FTP Voyager, provides information on configuring the software to run automatically as a service at Running FTP Voyager Scheduler as a System Service, which states the following:

FTP Voyager Scheduler can be configured to run as a system service by checking the box under View | Options | General | Run as a System Service. It is important to note that if you did not select this option at installation, you will need to uninstall and reinstall FTP Voyager before this will work properly. Instructions for backing up FTP Voyager settings can be found in KB article 1189

In version of FTP Voyager, you can take the following steps to run FTP Voyager Scheduler as a system service.

  1. In FTP Voyager Scheduler, click on View.
  2. Select Options.
  3. Under the General tab, click on "Run as a system service" to put a check in the checkbox next to it.
  4. Click on OK.

FTP Voyager Scheduler Options

To verify the software is configured to run as a system service, you can type services.msc at a command prompt. You should see a Startup Type of "automatic" next to FTP Voyager Scheduler.

Transferring FTP Voyager Settings Between Systems

FTP Voyager, from Rhino Software, Inc. stores profile settings for a user in C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\\FTP Voyager\FTPVoyager.ftp, where username is the userid for the relevant user. Note: this is true for version of FTP Voyager, but may not be true for all versions. Note, also, that you won't see the .ftp file extension if the system is configured to hide extensions for known file types.

So, if you need to reinstall FTP Voyager on another system, but wish to retain a user's individual FTP Voyager configuration information, such as personal FTP sites, which would appear under the FTP Voyager FTP Site Profile Manager, and scheduled file transfers, you should transfer this file from the old system to the new system and place the file in the corresponding directory on the new system.

Use SFTP Rather Than FTP

FTP uses unencrypted userids and passwords for file transfers, whereas SFTP uses an encrypted userid and password and encrypts the data as well. Many may have also experienced problems with getting FTP to work through a firewall. Steven Frank provides a list of other reasons at as to why one should avoid FTP when possible.
