Serv-U has a new look, new features, and sets a new standard. The RhinoSoft.com Development team has completely re-engineered Serv-U FTP Server from the ground up to be faster, more secure, and more flexible than ever before. The industry's most popular FTP server has evolved into the Serv-U File Server.
Improved the speed of directory listings in Basic Web Client and browse
dialog by 65%.
Greatly improved the speed at which listings of large amounts of data are
displayed, especially large User collections.
Greatly improved the sorting speed in the Basic Web Client and browse
dialog when reversing the sort direction.
Added the ability to play audio and video files from within the Basic Web
Added the ability to play all audio files continually from within the
Basic Web Client.
Added UTF-8 file name and path support to FTP. Serv-U supports the
"OPTS UTF8 ON|OFF" command to enable or disable UTF-8. By default
UTF-8 is enabled for the FTP protocol (RFC 2640), but can be disabled if
Added support for CSID (Client / Server Identification Exchange) to
identify the client to the server, and the response identifies the server to
the client. The information exchanged includes the name and version number
of the client and server, and information about the server including the
operating system, file system letter case sensitivity, operating system
version number, and directory separator. This command obsoletes the CLNT
Added the "SITE HELP" and "SITE HELP cmnd" command to
support clients, such as Internet Explorer, that make this request.
Added a new configuration option for NLST, where NLST can be configured to
list empty directories instead of returning "550 No file found.",
which is more meaningful to FTP clients than returning an error code.
Added new tags for FTP and HTTP (welcome message) string replacement. The
new tags are $ServerName, $OS, and $OSVer.
Added new tags to the System Variables section of the Help documentation
under Additional Reference. The new tags are $ServerName, $OS, and $OSVer.
Added client identification to the list of active connections for SSH
Added the ability to disable the server identification for SSH for the
entire server or for individual domains.
Added the ability to disable the use of Windows User (Active Directory /
Windows Login) home directory in favor of the group home directory.
Improved the use of the SSH local "Window Size" to improve SFTP
performance, especially for uploads.
Changed the default NLST operation to list empty directories instead of
returning an error code; "550 No file found.". Upgrades from
Serv-U 6.4 and earlier will still return the error code unless changed
Changed the default open file mode for downloads to "Full
Access" like in previous versions of Serv-U.
Changed the installer to convert Serv-U 6.4 and previous to also keep the
open file mode for download.
Changed Virtual Paths' physical path to allow the use of %HOME% and %USER%
in the physical path in addition to in the virtual path fields.
Changed the XCRC FTP command to accept parameters even when the file name
isn't wrapped with quotation marks.
When Windows shortcut files (.LNK files) are encountered, and the target
no longer exists or cannot be found, Serv-U treats the shortcut like any
Updated Swedish and Japanese tray strings.
Removed the "Windows Authentication" tab from the server global
user settings, as it was non-functional. Windows authentication may be
enabled only on a domain-by-domain basis.
Slide Show mode for the Basic Web Client now navigates images according to
the current sorting arrangement.
Increased the size of the Address column in the IP access rules list.
Added the removal of files that are not found when performing a delete,
copy, or rename operation in FTP Voyager JV.
Added better status information to the delete and copy dialogs of FTP
Voyager JV. It now shows the files inside a directory that is currently
Improved responsiveness of user interaction by reducing the load on the
worker threads of FTP Voyager JV.
Improved FTP Voyager JV's transfer speed by using buffers with dynamic
Added a password change confirmation dialog to FTP Voyager JV that shows
if the operation was successful.
Appended an index counter that is shown in FTP Voyager JV's
"Name" column of the transfer panel.

not accepted by many certificate authorities.
Added the ability to launch FTP Voyager JV from the Basic Web Client.
Changed the client selection dialog to use radio buttons instead of a drop

JV launch page.
Corrected a problem where long path names would cause the logout button to
be hidden in the Basic Web Client.
Corrected a problem with the certificate requests generated by Serv-U that
caused Certificate Authorities to reject the CSR file as invalid. The CSR
files generated by Serv-U have been successfully tested and signed using
Thawte and GeoTrust.
Corrected a problem on some systems, usually upgrades from previous
versions, where the Management Console could prompt for a password even when
one isn't defined for administering Serv-U.
Corrected a bug where delete privileges were not required to overwrite an
existing file. This change is designed to maintain compatibility with
previous versions of Serv-U.
Corrected a bug where append privileges were not required when resuming
transfers with the REST FTP command. This change is designed to maintain
compatibility with previous versions of Serv-U.
Corrected a bug where the AVBL and DSIZ commands would return an invalid
value when attempting to list the non-existent "" directory
(i.e., all drives).
Corrected a bug where an FTP active data socket that was supposed to bind
on 127.0.0.1 (localhost) Serv-U wouldn't bind to that IP address only.
Corrected a bug when attempting to rename a drive, Serv-U would not return
with an error code.
Corrected a bug where issuing PASV then ALLO instead of immediately trying
to transfer a file, the ALLO command (or any non-transfer threaded command)
could fail due to a misinterpretation of an internal result code.
Corrected a bug in the XCRC FTP command where sending "XCRC
file.fid", then "XCRC file.fid 0 100" would generate the same
result even though the second command checks only part of the file, not the

and "e.g." in the Management Console and Basic Web Client Help
Corrected a problem where the bubble tip dimensions in the management
console were not calculated correctly when long title names were used.
Corrected a bug where the update notification dialog / balloon tip would
appear every 2 hours if an update was available. This notification now only
appears every 3 days, as was originally intended.
Corrected an FTP data socket bug where Serv-U was not recognizing a data
socket was closed, and would not allow another data socket on that IP
address and port. This problem showed when attempting to do server-to-server
Corrected a potential GPF (crash) bug when shutting down Serv-U after
clients have connected, using FTP, and changed hosts via the HOST command,
to the non-primary domain on the IP address.
Corrected an SFTP (SSH) bug with the SSH_FXP_FSTAT command where Serv-U
would always return SSH_FX_NO_SUCH_FILE.
Corrected an SFTP (SSH) bug when setting the file attributes, Serv-U was
using the "world" bits instead of the "owner" bits for
read, write, and execute.

permissions attribute of the SFTP file attribute to S_IFREG for files,
stopping some SFTP clients from being able to download files.

(18446744073709551615) would be logged for some transactions.
Corrected an SSH problem where Serv-U was not properly handling the SSH
remote "Window Size" established by the client.
Corrected an SSH protocol problem where Serv-U could crash (GPF) when
compression wasn't being used, and the client sent an invalid packet size.
Corrected broken links to additional command information in the FTP
Settings dialog where the command consisted of multiple words, e.g., SITE
Corrected a bug where Serv-U could crash (GPF) when automatically blocking
an IP address for a domain based on invalid login attempts.
Corrected an ODBC problem with MS SQL 2005 where the database returns
failure when data doesn't exist. Serv-U was attempting to reconnect to the
database assuming it had timed out, but it hadn't. Now Serv-U uses a
built-in 5 minute timeout before attempting to reconnect to the database
Corrected an ODBC problem with MS SQL 2005 where the database would return
an error regarding "Connection is busy with results for another
Corrected a Basic Web Client bug where the Slide Show could show a
placeholder image for the first image if no file is currently selected or
the currently selected file is not an image.

would cause the upload path field to scroll.
Corrected a bug where non-default database column map values displayed

Corrected a duplicate FTP response in the Global FTP Properties
response codes, for paths that are ports.
