how can I make SmartFTP to the default ftp Client for all ftp:// commands?
Can't find it.

Assuming you have WinXP SP1, you could go into the Add/Remove programs applet and see what default applications are available to set.
However, you can have SmartFTP running with the URL watcher enabled and copy FTP links to the clipboard to perform a similar action.
Forgive me if anyone out there knows of a way to set application defaults for Internet protocols.
You could make a feature suggesiton (ahem -- pardon me: Enhancement Request...) for a background application to load at startup that catches URL's with ftp protocols as you navigate to them.

In "Add/Remove programs applet" is no option for ftp:// connections
I think it is possible, because my Opera do so. I registered Opera to be default Programm for ftp:// in Opera options. But now I want to have SmartFTP to do so .
Nice idea, but in my "File Types" there is only "url: Internetconnection" and not file transfer protocol.
I have WinXP Pro SP1 and SmartFTP 1.0.973.

i am using win2000, german operating system - i don't know the proper english terms, but you can look for your match: the above path was not wrong at all:
in folderoptions > file names there are some files marked 'n.zutr' meaning not applicable (is there in the english system something like 'n.a.'?) and here you find all protocolls:
n.zutr. URL: CallTo Protocol
n.zutr. URL:FTP (File Transfer Protocol)
and so on. here you follow the rest of the above described path.
...but :?: it still does not work wth me!
there is an extended option asking weather to use DDE. if i leave it the way it is, all ftp:// are still done by IE, if i uncheck the DDE at my next browser start i get a prompt "IE is not your default browser". What now?
anybody with a clue :?:

So, YES, you CAN make SmartFTP your default FTP Client. I use Win98SE and it the file type is:
URL:File Transfer Protocol
