Software Update: Serv-U

Rhino Software has released version of Serv-U, as a successor to Serv-U is a small and easy-to-use ftp server program that is suitable for home and professional use. The program can be tried out as a Corporate Edition for the first thirty days. During that time there is an unlimited number of configurable domains, users per domain and simultaneous connections, and the possibility to set up secure connections. After that, the program continues as Personal Edition with slightly limited functionality, such as a limited number of domains, concurrent connections, and user accounts. In this release we find some updated translations, a new way to save passwords and a handful of bug fixes:


  • Updated Japanese, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, and Russian strings.
  • Added a new Password Limit to use either one-way (more secure, less functional) or two-way (less secure, more functional) password encryption when storing passwords to disk.

Bug Fixes:

  • Corrected the FTP FEAT response to comply with RFC 2389 ( so that the listed features are always preceded by a single space, and never the response code. This deviation from the RFC was introduced in Serv-U 7.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV, introduced in version, where FTP Voyager JV was not saving the file list column order between sessions.
  • Corrected a bug where a Swedish string warning about the trial expiring could cause the Tray application to crash. Only Swedish installations were affected.
  • Corrected a Web Client problem with the Safari and Opera browsers, when downloading files with spaces in the file name, Safari and Opera would incorrectly use %20 for spaces as part of the file name instead of the actual file name.
  • Corrected a bug where it was impossible to change if passwords are encrypted on disk or not. Introduced in
