Serv-U FTP Server and Serv-U MFT Server version 15.2 are now available!

Product Manager

We are pleased to announce the general availability of Serv-U FTP & MFT Server version 15.2. This release contains new features and improvements, notably

  • Improved Management Console user interface
  • Increased password security (every user needs to create a new password)
  • Chinese and Korean characters support in file transfer
  • Performance and stability improvements
  • Improved Internet Explorer compatibility
  • 3DES algorithm deprecations

IMPORTANT: This Serv-U version 15.2 shouldn't be applied for installations with automated users or generally users who don't have access to Serv-U web ftp client as they are prompted to change password and it is not possible without login via web ftp client so their access will not work. In case Serv-U 15.2 is applied for this type of implementation current workaround is to revert version 15.2. We will inform about new version without this limitation soon.

I tried upgrading from 15.1.7.288 to this 15.2.1.446 and it completely broke the server. Serv-U support has been useless over these last 3 weeks to get this fixed. On my own I learned that the issue is because I have a Serv-U Gateway connected to the MFT server (exactly as described in the documentation.) When I disable the Gateway it works fine but 2 minutes after I enable the Gateway the Management Console freezes and no one can connect to the server with any of the protocols (FTP, SFTP, FTPS or HTTPS). I have gotten nothing but the run-around from support. The developers will request a webex but then cancel or not show up. We have tried to reach the manager of the support team, Ma. Emflor Joy M. Amurao, but he is dodging our calls and only gives the canned response of, "This case is now being investigated by our Development Team." and " I will also be monitoring this case closely." I have been hearing that for 2 weeks!

While some of the products are decent, the lack of support from Solarwinds means that you should only by their stuff if you don't care if it breaks for weeks on end.
