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

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.
EDIT: Serv-U version 15.2.1 resolving this limit is now available - announcement
