UFTP is a multicast file transfer program, utilizing a protocol based on Starburst MFTP. It is designed to reliably and efficiently transfer files to multiple receivers simultaneously, where either the intended receivers can be specified beforehand, or receivers can join the transfer when it is initiated. This is useful for distributing large files to a large number of receivers, and is especially useful for data distribution over a satellite link (with two way communication), where the inherent delay makes any TCP based communication terribly inefficient. UFTP has been used in the production process of The Wall Street Journal to send WSJ pages over satellite to their remote printing plants.
