Documentation forServ-U MFT & Serv-U FTP Server

Serv-U Web Client overview

The Serv-U Web Client is an HTTP-based file transfer client available for use by all users on a licensed Serv-U File Server. The Web Client is a perfect solution for users and organizations with a need to provide a simple method of transferring a few files between users. Because it uses the HTTP protocol to communicate with Serv-U, the Web Client avoids some of the headaches associated with using the FTP protocol in a secured environment or through the limited support of FTP in today's common web browsers.

The Web Client includes the following features:

  • Share files.
  • Access your files from anywhere using a Graphical User Interface (GUI) from within your browser.
  • Transfer files to and from your file server, including creating and deleting directories.
  • View remote images as thumbnails generated on-the-fly to conserve bandwidth and increase transfer speed.
  • Easily share photo albums using the built-in slideshow feature.
  • Play audio and video files in the built-in media player.
  • Provide access to the file server in eleven different supported languages.
