Change default FTP client
Authored by: inik on Jan 09, '03 04:29:21PM

The default FTP client can be changed in Internet Explorer in the protocol helpers preferences. Stupid that there's no system-wide way to do this as there was in OS 9.

Change default FTP client for Safari from Internet Explorer
Authored by: d-gen on Jan 14, '03 05:38:18PM

Yes, there's no Internet Config like in the old OS9 days so it is enfuriating to have to use MS software to change a global parameter that Safari uses by default.

I had my FTP helper set to Fetch, and after installing Safari for the first time it retained my preference. Now I have to launch explorer to change the FTP helper for Safari, and there's no third party app to do it - stupid huh?

Change default FTP client for Safari from Internet Explorer
Authored by: surfsofa on May 02, '03 07:27:34AM

I checked recently modified files after changing this pref in IE
and the following two files were modified :

~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.internetconfig.plist
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.LaunchServices.plist

So I'm guessing it might be possible to edit one of these to give
the desired effect - ie. changing the system-wide handler for
FTP.

I'm not expert enough to advise further, maybe someone else
could pick-up here?
