Thu 05 April 2018 | security release

We are pleased to announce the latest release of SFTPPlus version 3.32.0.

New Features

  • SFTP and SCP file transfer services can now listen on IPv6 addresses and accept connections from IPv6 clients. [server-side][sftp][scp] [#1924]
  • The HTTP and HTTPS service now accepts creating new folders with the HTTP PUT and WebDAV MKCOL methods. [server-side][http][https] [#4828-1]
  • The HTTP and HTTPS service now accepts deleting folders and files with the HTTP DELETE method. [server-side][http][https] [#4828-2]
  • The HTTP and HTTPS service now accepts file uploads using the HTTP PUT method. [server-side][http][https] [#4828]

Defect fixes

  • FTP and FTPS client side transfer can now transfer files larger than a few bytes from a remote FTP/FTPS server and to the local filesystem. This issue was introduced in SFTPPlus version 3.20.0. This defect was not affecting uploading / pushing files to a remote FTP/FTPS server. [client-side][ftp][ftps] [#4754]
  • The Developer Documentation for the HTTP authentication method was updated to make it clear the expected repose codes for the authentication server. [server-side] [#4758]
  • The JavaScript UI for the HTTP and HTTPS file transfer services no longer limit the file size to 256MB. This defect was introduced in 3.31.0. [server-side][http][https] [#4815]

Deprecations and Removals

  • The default secure ssl_cipher_list configuration was updated to HIGH:!PSK:!RSP:!eNULL:!aNULL:!RC4:!MD5:!DES:!3DES:!aDH:!kDH:!DSS. The previous value was ALL:!RC4:!DES:!3DES:!MD5:!EXP. In this way, when updating the OpenSSL library you will automatically get an update in the list of secure ciphers, without the need to update SFTPPlus. [security][ftps][https][client-side][server-side] [#4748]
  • The event (ID 40025) that was emitted when an unknown error was generated by the HTTP service during a JSON API request was removed. It has been replaced with event ID 40003. [server-side][http][https] [#4828]
