CrushFTP v4 released
CrushFTP, a platform-independent file server program, has been updated to version 4.0. The program serves FTP, SFTP, HTTP and WebDAV -- which enables Mac OS X users to do file management on their server directly from the Finder. The server can also be interfaced through a web browser, allowing users to upload files and compress them on-the-fly. The latest update adds many new features, and fixes a number of issues and bugs. Some of the new features include support for private of public SFTP keys, additional WebDAV commands and compatibility options, enabling and disabling directory caching, updates to plugin functionality when previewing graphics, controlling CPU load, among others.
The cross-platform CrushFTP is a versatile file server that supports many different services and offers a variety of reporting as well as automatic file compression and image preview services. Described as a "virtual toolkit" for file server administrators, it can use plugins to leverage its extensible architecture and offers features for advanced user management, including permissions and ban regulation and protection against FTP hammering.
The full version of CrushFTP is available for $30, and this covers ten concurrent users. An unlimited version can be obtained for $100.
