The Serv-U Web Client is an HTTP-based file transfer client available for use by all users on a licensed Serv-U File Server. The Web Client is a perfect solution for users and organizations with a need to provide a simple method of transferring a few files between users. Because it uses the HTTP protocol to communicate with Serv-U, the Web Client avoids some of the headaches associated with using the FTP protocol in a secured environment or through the limited support of FTP in today's common web browsers.
The Web Client includes the following features:
In the Web Client you can send login credentials and special load parameters in the URL pointing to the Serv-U File Server. The following list contains the parameters that you can add to the URL:
In the Web Client you can search for files using the File Search button located under the file list pane. You can use the following wildcards:
The Web Client can be run in today's most popular browsers. The following minimum system requirements must be met to run the Web Client:
Web Client Pro cannot be used on Linux in Google Chrome versions later than v.35 due to an incompatibility between the browser and the Java browser plug-in.
The Web Client is intended to easily enable basic file transfer functionality on the broadest platform available: the standard browser. However, it is not intended to be a wholesale replacement for a full-featured FTP client. If you are looking for an enterprise level solution that offers a full-featured file transfer client to your users, then FTP Voyager JV is available to meet your needs. With FTP Voyager JV, you still get easy deployment and access configuration of the client through HTTP, but its basis on the Java platform enables the following features that are not available in the Web Client:
To enable FTP Voyager JV, you must purchase a supported license for the file server. When it is enabled, FTP Voyager JV is available to all users of the file server that have installed the Java Runtime Environment on their system.
