SFTPPlus Server 2.1.0 Release

Tue 26 November 2013 | server release

SFTPPlus Team is pleased to announce the latest release of SFTPPlus Server, version 2.1.0

Main new features are:

  • A graphical user interface for managing the SFTPPlus Server.
  • Support for FTP APPE command. For more details consult the IETF RFC 959.
  • Globbing for FTP NLST and LIST commands. Globbing support is limited to Unix Shell wildchars * , ? , [ and ].
  • Add –-generate-uuid command line options to generate UUIDs.
  • Add --validate command line options to server-commands to validate server configuration.
  • Add –key-comment command line options to server-commands to allow specifying a comment for the generated SSH public key.
  • Allow sending log entries to remote HTTP server using HTTP Post requests.
  • Use a generic HTTP POST request for sending logs to legacy SFTPPlus WebAdmin.
  • Add support for storing server logs inside a database. MySQL and SQLite are supported.
  • Allow configuring an arbitrary number of log handlers, including multiple log handlers of the same type.

There is no cost for the upgrade software as it is included with customers Support and Maintenance package. We will provide full support for each customer to migrate to latest version and explain the new features.

We would encourage you to plan a migration at the earliest opportunity.

While we have not placed an ‘end of life’ date for support on older versions we would like to plan for that as soon as practical and would like to work with you to plan the migration.

We suggest you might initially install the new version on a test/trial basis and we will be happy to assist with an online session for that as well.

The new documentation will explain and describe all new features, but we also welcome feedback from customers to improve the documentation so that we cover differing knowledge levels as well as differing requirements.

The roadmap includes further development and we welcome your input and feedback so that we can decide features, enhancements and functionality that may be included.
