Rhino Software has released version 22.214.171.124 of Serv-U. Serv-U is a small and easy to operate ftp server, which is suitable for both home and professional use. The program can be tried out in the Corporate Edition version for the first thirty days. During that time there is, among other things, an unlimited number of domains, users per domain and simultaneous connections, and the possibility to set up secure connections. After the thirty days, the program continues as a Personal Edition with slightly limited functionality, such as a limited number of domains, concurrent connections, and user accounts. Version 126.96.36.199 has, among other things, further reduced memory usage, improved security and made some adjustments to FTP Voyager JV, the ftp client embedded in a Java applet. Below is the full changelog for this release:
- Substantially reduced the RAM requirements for servers with many domains and very high traffic servers. Serv-U requires about half of the RAM or less as with previous versions through 7.0.
- Updated the look and feel for the “Windows | Office 2003” styles for FTP Voyager JV.
- Added additional checks to prevent high frequency login attempts on a single session (ie, dictionary login attacks).
- Serv-U 188.8.131.52 through 184.108.40.206 cached Windows login tokens, user IDS, and passwords; previous versions did not. For potential security reasons, token logging has been removed for login.
- Improved the load time of the FTP Voyager JV startup page by loading only images that apply to the browser.
- Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV, introduced in version 220.127.116.11, where the active frame failed to receive focus when the user clicked within the empty space of a grid.
- Corrected a bug where FTP Voyager JV would fail to launch if certain JavaFX resources could not be loaded.
- Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where sorting drives was being performed on the display name instead of the drive letter.
- Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where sorting special Window directories interfered with the sort results of certain folders and files.
- Corrected a bug where “Port Forwarding” could prevent FTP Voyager JV from getting a listing from Serv-U. This would only happen if the router’s public port was different from Serv-U’s private port that was listening for HTTP connections.
- Corrected a problem when starting Serv-U as a service, the service initialization could fail (timeout) when a very large number of domains were defined.
- Corrected a bug where French and Italian result strings were being interpreted incorrectly by the browser. In the case of the Web Client, an error message would appear for French and Italian once a file began uploading.
- Fixed a bug in the User’s Group Membership dialog where scrolling would not work correctly when the number of groups in the list exceeded the viewable area of the list.
- Corrected an SSL/TLS bug where Serv-U would not recognize a closed socket after calling SSL_read() from OpenSSL.
