Serv-U File Server is a multi-protocol file server capable of sending and receiving files from other networked computers through various means. Administrators create accounts for users that allow access to specific files and folders on the server's hard drive or any other available network resource. These access permissions define where and how the users can access the available resources. Serv-U's multi-protocol support means that users can employ whatever access method is available to them when connecting to your server. In addition, Serv-U supports both IPv4 and IPv6 for next-generation networks. Serv-U File Server supports the following protocols:
In addition to Serv-U's support for a large collection of the most popular FTP clients, you can use your favorite web browser or SSH client to connect and transfer files to and from Serv-U. Server administrators looking to provide a full-featured FTP client to users who may not have an FTP client license of their own can even license FTP Voyager JV. FTP Voyager JV is a Java-enabled FTP client delivered to the user after logging in to their Serv-U account.
