Documentation forServ-U MFT & Serv-U FTP Server

Serv-U editions

Serv-U File Server is available in two editions:

File Transfer Protocol (FTP) Server This edition is designed for small businesses and project teams requiring FTPS to secure FTP, scripted transfers, and a smaller number of users and domains supported on a single server.
Managed File Transfer (MFT) Server

This edition is designed for businesses of all sizes that need to secure data in transit through SFTP, FTPS, or HTTPS in addition to FTP. It adds remote administration through web browsers and iPad, authentication through Active Directory or a database, clustering and event-driven automation, and branding.

MFT includes:

  • Events
  • File Sharing
  • Additions protocols
  • Web Client Customization
  • LDAP and Windows Authorization
  • The FTP Voyager JV module

Both editions support FTP, web transfer, and mobile devices. Both editions also support the optional Serv-U Gateway module, which is a reverse proxy component that prevents data at rest in a DMZ segment.

For a feature-by-feature comparison of the versions, see the Serv-U FTP Server Editions Information.
