Dexter the FTP Indexer is a program created by Leech Software. Dexter scans for, verifies the authenticity of, copies the location of, and finally indexes FTP (File Transfer Protocol) links, and then collates those results in the form of an HTML file. It was originally created for use with the Windows 98 operating system.
Dexter generated multiple threads with specific URLs which act as a search engine and copy the location of FTP links on their behalf. Dexter can choose FTP or awze servers to send links. An end-to-end URL extension will collect the URL links that the browser sends. In order to confirm the authenticity of the links it finds, the program creates a check list of all the possible sites which bear that claim, ensuring that those files are still functional and available. As soon as the list has been generated, no dead links will appear. After the data has been compiled, it's indexed, and a list of results is presented as an HTML document that can be saved to users' browsers. In this format, you can make a webpage or edit the results easily.
The Dexter system provides a streamlined interface and processing steps in a quick timeframe. By using the search feature, the user can customize which files or formats are indexed, so that only their exact name is returned. Another option would be to specify the maximum number of threads that can be created simultaneously using the scope of the search. Dexter is capable of searching hundreds of servers and/or sites all at the same time. It can do this work in as little as seconds, depending on how many servers are being indexed and how many files are located.
Indexes can be found based on the links they look for through FTP in their indexes.Features:
