Everything you need to securely share, manage, and distribute files over the internet.

  • Added Web Client support for BlackBerry mobile phones.
  • Added the ability to filter user and group lists in the Management Console.
  • Added support for interpreting (line feed) characters as end-of-line markers when transferring files in ASCII mode. When enabled end-of-line markers are converted to sequences. This transfer limit applies to both FTP uploads and downloads.
  • Added an option to the Serv-U Tray to start Serv-U as a service or manually.
  • Changed database user storage to store only required user attributes at login, logout, and user password change. These changes allow database administrators to manage their database much more independently.
  • Added support for PostgreSQL databases.
  • Changed transfer speed limits so they are applied to active sessions even when the session previously had no limit. Previous versions did this only if active sessions had a limit already in-place (i.e., a speed limit was changed, not added).
  • Added additional security checks to ensure Serv-U application integrity.
  • Added the ability to search drop lists using keyboard presses in the Management Console.
  • Added the ability to close dialogs using the Escape key in the Management Console and Web Client.
  • Added support for CIDR notation for IP ranges in addition to Serv-U's wildcard method.
  • Added the ability to permanently block an IP address using the anti-hammer rule for the domain or server. When triggered an IP address is added to the top of the IP access rules permanently. When added, the server's configuration files are updated so the IP address remains blocked even between Serv-U restarts.
  • Added the "FTP password type" password limit to the Server, Domain, and Group levels in addition to the user level. A global or group setting may be applied to use MD4/MD5 OTP passwords for FTP.
  • Added "MaxDomainSessions", "MaxDomainSessionsIP", "MaxDomainUploadRate", and "MaxDomainDownloadRate" to the server limits & settings in addition to the domain limits and settings.
  • Added the ability to export the users in all collections and database from the user's tab and externally with the Serv-U-Setup.exe program.
  • Added a drop down list of available IP addresses in the Listener dialog and in the Domain Creation Wizard.
  • Added the ability to specify %HOME%, %USER%, or %DOMAIN_HOME% as part of the SSH public key path.
  • Added additional Domain Administrator restrictions so a domain administrator cannot change the following limits: "MaxDomainSessions", "MaxDomainUploadRate, "MaxDomainDownloadRate"
  • Changed configuration, account configuration, startup log, and data files location to "C:ProgramData" (ALLUSERSPROFILE environment variable) in Windows Vista and above on new Serv-U installations that are installed in "C:Program Files" only. This is required on Windows 7+ when UAC is in effect.
  • Removed some unused HTTP files.
  • Removed some Server and Domain session management code that was duplicated elsewhere. This change will save a small amount of RAM for servers with many concurrent connections.
Bug Fixes:
  • Corrected "Cookie Buffer Overflow Vulnerability" (Secunia SA37228).
  • Corrected a bug where Serv-U could crash after disabling an active user.
  • Corrected a bug where user accounts whose login ID ended with a period character were not being shown in the users grid.
  • Corrected a bug where downloading 0-byte files using FTPS could cause the data channel to be disconnected during SSL negotiation causing 0-byte downloads to intermittently fail.
  • Corrected a bug where the Advanced Directory Access rule password was being saved incorrectly when using a database. When using MS SQL the bug would appear as a lost directory access rule. When using other databases, the password would just be invalid; if using these advanced settings and storing to a database, modification of the user record would cause improper access to the directory access rule. This problem only occurred on MS SQL 2005+ because MS SQL throws an error instead of truncating the value.
  • Corrected a bug when saving encrypted strings to database or .Archive file, Serv-U would archive values even when the encrypted string was empty.
  • Corrected a bug in the Web Client where the "Playlist" button would not work when in "Search" mode.
  • Corrected a bug where user lookups would occur after a session's login ID was cleared. This resulted in unnecessary user and database user lookups.
  • Corrected a bug where database users' statistics were not being loaded correctly after loading data from the database.
  • Corrected a bug when FTP Voyager JV, the .jar files were being downloaded every time FTP Voyager JV was started. Now, when unchanged, Java uses its cached copy of the FTP Voyager JV .jar files.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV, where the Last-Modified timestamp of a file that was uploaded from a non-English operating system would fail.
  • Corrected a bug in the Web Client where focus was being lost when using the keyboard to navigate the file list.
  • Corrected a bug when upgrading from Serv-U 6.4 and lower when using a database domain, installation / conversion would cause the installer to crash.
  • Corrected a bug when upgrading from Serv-U 6.4 and lower when using a database domain, group membership for users would not be imported under certain rare circumstances.
  • Corrected a bug when upgrading from Serv-U 6.4 and lower when using a database domain, import would not work correctly if the old table names matched the new default table names in Serv-U 7+.
  • Corrected a database bug when upgrading from Serv-U 6.4 or lower, and using the table names "User" or "Group" would cause the upgrade to fail.
  • Corrected a database bug where daily session counts were not being written to the database.
  • Corrected a bug where Tray messages boxes (confirmation, error, warning) would be displayed without text in all languages.
  • Corrected an SFTP logging bug where the SSH_FXP_REALPATH was not being logged, just the reply.
  • Corrected an SSH2 problem where Serv-U was not responding to the SSH_MSG_GLOBAL_REQUEST command.
  • Corrected a user group membership problem when changing group membership for a user that is connected, certain variables applying to limits, were not being properly adjusted. For example limiting access by IP address.
  • Corrected a bug where passwords that were stored in an unencrypted form (i.e., clear-text) were not checked letter case sensitive.
  • Corrected a bug where users created with the User Wizard were being stored without encryption.
  • Corrected a Windows 7 UAC problem where Serv-U was unable to communicate with the tray application to identify Serv-U status and enable tray / engine communication.
  • Corrected a problem, introduced in Serv-U 7.0, where the STOU FTP command would append a digit to a specified file name even when the specified file name doesn't exist, an inconsistency with Serv-U versions <= 6.4.
