  • User/profile management.
  • FTPS over the web.
  • SFTP over the SSH protocol.
  • The user interface on large screens becomes tiny and nearly unreadable without the aid of Windows Magnifier.
  • Active Directory integration is either absent or not straightforward.
  • Settings and configuration aren't always intuitive.

  • The Wizard allows us to create new user accounts very easily and quickly. We do not have a formal IT department so those of us "mere mortals" can use this easily.
  • Using the Web Client has made it very simple to set up and instruct our customers on getting to the server from any device with a minimum of fuss. We have many customers with ESL, and school students including middle and high school. Most of them are not computer experts, just regular users so the simplicity allows to do the whole setup over the phone in minutes.
  • The newer version of Serv-U does not appear to be very resource-hungry so our computer runs nice and fast, without having to be a top of the range powerbox. We concentrated on large storage to cope with the file sizes we receive daily.
  • To be honest, as a regular user and not an IT professional, I can't think of anything else I need Serv-U to do for me.

  • Secure File Transfer.
  • Local User Accounts that can be used for outside users.
  • The LDAP authentication works but the home directory sets limits.
  • Enabling access to Virtual Directories would enhance the capabilities.
