Serv-U is a powerful, easy-to-use, Windows-based multi-protocol FTP, SFTP and HTTP file server for Windows and Linux. It allows files to be shared over the Internet via unencrypted protocols like FTP and HTTP or securely via FTPS, SFTP, or HTTPS.

Using a built-in web service the software can be configured remotely from any location with Internet access and a web browser. And two built-in file transfer clients allow for file management without requiring pre-installed FTP/SFTP client software.

Serv-U is not only 100% compliant with the current FTP, SFTP and HTTP standards. It also includes numerous features unique to Serv-U that make it a perfect file sharing solution for virtually everyone. Serv-U features an open architecture that makes it very easy to extend, monitor, and change the server behavior with external DLLs.

Designed for all business types and sizes, Serv-U MFT Server software simplifies file transfer for employees from easy-to-use Web client and mobile interface. Moreover it centralizes enterprise-wide file transfer operations for IT pros to ensure better administration, visibility, and control. This means IT pros can now take file transfer control back from employees who are using non-IT-approved FTP freeware and cloud services for exchanging business files.

Serv-U supports separate listeners for IPv6 addresses, IPv6 CIDR support, IPv6 access rules, and logging. Also it supports IPv6 without losing any functionality supported with IPv4.
