XF 1.4 From SMF to XF without ACP

Hey Developers

I have admin permissions on XenForo, but not on SMF.
Now, I want to import just the thread and it's postings (may also the users, if not too complicated) to my XenForo.

Are there applications, such as Crawlers, who can done this work?

Thank you,

You don't need access to the SMF admin panel to import.

You just need the database (and log in credentials) and server files (attachments, avatars), on the same server that XF is installed.

Then navigate to /admin.php?import/
