Documentation forServ-U MFT & Serv-U FTP Server

Serv-U server limits and settings

Limits and settings are used to configure the basic settings and behavior for the entire file server, including FTP command processor customization and SSL/SSH encryption and certificate options. Limits and settings configured at the server level are inherited by all domains, groups, and users.

Limits Limits are grouped based upon the area of the server they are responsible for configuring. Limits allow specifying multiple values for the same option that are applied based upon the time of day and the day of the week. Server level limits can be overridden at the domain, group, and user level.
Settings Server level settings configure the global behavior of the file server. Some settings are used by the domains, user accounts, and groups as default values when not overridden.
FTP Settings The server FTP command processor configures advanced behavior such as the text responses to FTP commands, FTP command settings, or disabling the use of an FTP command by clients.
Encryption Encryption options specified at the server level are used by default unless overridden at the domain level with different information. The advanced SSL and SSH encryption options can only be configured at the server level.
Custom HTML The Custom HTML feature is used to customize the look of your Serv-U File Server login page.
File Sharing (MFT only) The File Sharing feature allows users to send or receive files from guests.
Global multifactor authentication These settings determine whether multifactor authentication is disabled, enabled, or enforced at the server level.
