On July 29, OCIO will stop distributing Core FTP from its Site Licensed Software page. Core FTP is a Windows-based file transfer protocol (FTP) client. Currently, the free open source software does not support all the new Secure FTP (SFTP) requirements for OSU Web hosting content updates. As a replacement, OCIO is now distributing FileZilla, a fast and reliable cross-platform FTP, FTPS and SFTP client. For Windows FTP client software details, see OSU Site Licensed Software at osusls.osu.edu.

Ghost is an enterprise disk utility program for disk imaging and deployment. It was last updated in 2008 to support Windows 2000/XP/Vista; 2000/2003 Server.
Qualcomm discontinued its Eudora e-mail applications on May 1, 2007, and no longer offer support for it. While Eudora continues to function for those who are using it, any future problems that might arise with it, e.g., a Macintosh or Windows OS update, will not be resolved.
