Plain FTP is insecure, and it’s pretty easy to sniff your username and password. Anyone who manages to connect to your network can capture network traffic, sniff out your FTP password, and then access/steal your files. Tools to do so are readily available.
The bottom line is: do NOT use plain FTP for file transfer if you value your data. Or, stick to plain FTP and risk being hacked. It’s up to you.
Personally, I value security. That’s why I wrote ZitaFTP Server. It’s a secure FTP server (i.e., an FTPS server). The password sniffing techniques shown above only work with plain FTP (and HTTP), and fail the moment secure connections are used. I highly recommend you stop using insecure plain FTP, and use FTPS instead. Yes, even within your own private network.
ZitaFTP Server Prerelease Coming Soon Posted on 06 Aug 2019 by Hans de Ruiter In News Tags: AmigaOS, Products Here’s a small peak at something I’ve been working on. It’s an FTP(S) server that’s: Fast Secure Supports multiple simultaneous connections And more It’s still a work-in-progress, but is useful enough that – all going well – a pre-release version will be released for AmigaOS 4.x on Tuesday 20 August 2019.

After 12 months of development, Airsoft Softwair, the hardest working men in code business, are proud to present the best Hollywood ever: Hollywood 8: Supremacy. Version 8.0 is a massive update with many new features and bug fixes. The most important new feature is full RapaGUI support on Android, which allows you to create GUIs for Android devices using Hollywood. As always with RapaGUI, only native widgets are used so the GUIs look and feel completely native. This is a truly unique feature because no other software allows you to create native GUIs for Amiga (MUI), Windows, macOS, Linux (GTK+), and Android! On top of that, there are tons of other new features, bug fixes, and improvements.
The Advanced Visual Developer software by BitbyBit software status update! The Advanced Visual Developer project is intended to bring high level, professional visual development tools to the AmigaOS4(tm) platform.
As written by Jamie Krueger,
For any of you that may have seen my presentations at the
last AmiWest show, or read my post below, we (Amiga On The Lake
and myself) announced that there be a significant update to
AVD released to the current owners by December 5th of this year.
Also scheduled for the 5th was the new listing for the
“AVD Early adopter’s special offer” to go up on AOTL’s
store, where new customers have a final chance to
purchase the commercial AVD Suite at the Pre-release
price of $199 before AVD 1.0 is released.
So, for those of you keeping track, the 5th was a few days ago,
and nothing has yet appeared on either site.
Do not despair :-), there has been some unavoidable
delays since returning from AmiWest at the end of October
which have pushed back the intended release for Dec. 5th.
AmigaOS 3.1.4 for 68K Amigas released! Brussels, September 30, 2018 Hyperion Entertainment CVBA is highly pleased to announce the release of AmigaOS 3.1.4 as the biggest upgrade since the days of AmigaOS 3.5 and 3.9.The new, cleaned-up, polished Amiga operating system for your 68K machine fixes all the small annoyances that have piled up over the years. Originally intended as a bug-fix release, it also modernizes many system components previously upgraded in OS 3.9. Contrary to its modest revision number, 3.1.4 is arguably as large an upgrade as OS 3.9 was, and surpasses it in stability and robustness. Over 320K of release notes cover almost every aspect of your favourite classic AmigaOS — from bootmenu to datatypes.AmigaOS 3.1.4 is available as immediate purchase from our direct download section as digital download and will be available shortly as physical set of 3,5″ floppy diskettes and machine specific ROM(s).Hyperion Entertainment CVBA wants to use this opportunity also to thank the great team of developers, testers, translators and other helpers for all their hard work during the recent months. Without them this release would not have been possible.
Amiga Cases – A500, A1200 and A600The new case is designed as an homage to the beauty and power of the Amiga 3000 and has the optional keyboard garage like the original Amiga 1000. The modular design is capable of building a highly powerful, True Amiga, based on the A500, A600 and A1200 motherboards with all of the extras that are available for these amazing computer motherboards like the Vampire accelerator/24bit graphics upgrade. http://www.apollo-accelerators.comThis video shows inside the case with components mounted with version two prototype testing.
Where to get chipsets? well no idea! My reason to do this is to make old dead machines live again. my experience is that most faults on 1200s isn’t the chipset but corroded PCBs and shorted ceramic caps etc. so put in all new passives. move the chipset and logic and connectors and viola..
AmigaOne A1222 updateTalking about communicating, I receive a lot of requests for information about the release date for the AmigaOne A1222. At AmiWest 2017 and Amiga32, in agreement with Hyperion Entertainment, I was able to present the first public showing of the AmigaOne A1222 running a pre-release beta version of AmigaOS 4.1. I was able to demonstrate that AmigaOS4.1 is very stable on the A1222 which also fully supports the latest RadeonHD 3.x, including the new 64-bit VRAM feature, along with Warp 3D Nova and Warp3D-SI. However, I did reveal that work was still ongoing on the Audio and Ethernet drivers and well as FPU optimsation. The A1222 has not been totally cut-off from cyberspace since the AmigaOS 4.1 beta iso included a driver for an inexpensive USB-to-Ethernet device which allowed the A1222 to connect to the web. A number of the beta testers, including me, have been using the device for online access and I even wrote and posted an earlier blog using the device/driver. The USB-to-Ethernet device was a good stop-gap measure but obviously not suitable for the final AmigaOne A1222 release.Remote Desktop on AmigaOne A1222 to Windows PCI’m actually writing this blog using a combination Odyssey and Remote Desktop on my AmigaOne A1222 to test out a new on-board Ethernet driver written by AmigaOS 4.1 developer Rene’ Olsen. 🙂 .I’m pleased to report that Rene’s driver appears to be very stable and works well. I’ve downloaded multiple copies of the latest Enhancer Software v2.x beta archives and installed numerous programs and utilities from AMIStore and transferred gigabytes of data over my LAN without any problems.Running OWB on AmigaOne A1222Even better the driver appears to be on par and perhaps a little faster that the standard OS4 network driver for my RTL8139 Ethernet card. Incidentally, Rene’ also wrote the driver for the USB-to-Ethernet device so I suppose it’s no surprise that the initial release of his Ethernet driver works so well. I’ve attached a couple of screengrabs showing Remote Desktop and Odyssey on my A1222, two programs which are always a good tests of network performance. The driver has now been issued to the A1222 beta testers for thorough stress testing. Rene’ received some help from Justin Hibbits who was recommended to Steven Solie by Alex Perez. Alex is another A1222 & X5000 beta tester who has a particular fondness for Linux. Justin is a committer at FreeBSD who, according to Steven, is looking for help with the FreeBSD port. If any Linux motivated A1222 beta testers want to help Justin complete FreeBSD for Tabor/A1222 please make contact and I will pass on your details. We already have the Atlantis and Pathfinder Tabor boards working 24/7 building Debian SPE thanks to the work of John Paul Adrian Glaubitz.
