Congratulations for grabbing Transmit, the best thing that's ever happened to MacOS™ FTP. We think you'll be quite happy to use it, and we at Panic are very proud of what we've created.

Double-click the Transmit icon, fill in all your connection information, hit the "Connect" button, and then use Transmit the same way you use the MacOS! Drag from one panel to the other to transfer. Drag items to Transmit's trash to delete files. Click on an item and wait to rename it. Drag to and from the Finder as you wish. Do a "Get Info" to learn more about a file. Etc.

Piece of cake, eh? The rest of the good stuff lies underneath the "File" menu and should be pretty self explanatory.

Panic Software, the makers of Audion and CandyBar, are offering Transmit 1.7, the last version for OS 9, for free. The serial number is included in the download.

Architecture: 68k PPC

v. 1.7 PPC only
v. 1.6 68k/PPC
v. 1.5.1 68k

Personally I always preferred Fetch, and still use it now to transfer files to / from a website I manage for someone's home-business.

Version 1.6 is best 68k FTP client ever!! I still use it to transfer data from my MacBook Pro.

Perhaps the version you are using is not compatible with Mac OS 9 !
Try to look here for a suitable version of Transmit in the Panic's file museum. Transmit 2.3 seems to be the last version compatible with Mac OS 9 before switching to a Mac OS X-only application.

does this app have a problem with mac os 9.0.4? everytime i use it my machine locks and i have to reboot...

fetch 4 works perfectly for me.. i wish i could use transmit. i have used it before when i was running 9.1 or 9.2 im pretty sure i didnt have this problem -- is it a known problem?
