By using the file sharing feature, domain users can send or receive files from guests.

File sharing is disabled by default. You must select the relevant option to enable it.

To send file sharing invitation emails, you must configure your SMTP settings. This configuration only needs to be set once for the entire server or a domain.

For more information about file sharing, see the Serv-U Web Client Getting Started Guide.

To enable file sharing:

  1. Navigate to Server Limits and Settings > File Sharing.
  2. Type the address for the domain URL.
  3. Type the location of the file sharing repository.
  4. Select the number of days until the shares expire.
  5. Select whether you want to use the inherited default email invitation subject, or customize your own. If the option is deselected, you can type in a custom email invitation subject.
  6. Select whether you want to use the inherited default email notification message, or customize your own. If the option is deselected, you can type in a custom message.
  7. Select Enable File Sharing.
  8. If it is not configured yet, configure your SMTP to be able to send and receive notification emails. For more information about configuring an SMTP server, see SMTP configuration.
  9. Click Save.
