Serv-U Management Console on the iPad  -  KB Article #2083

Related Articles --

You may run the Serv-U Management Console on any iPad with iOS v5 or greater.

Almost all the usual Management Console functions are available on the iPad, including:

  • Resetting passwords and unlocking users.
  • Monitoring current activity via statistics and logs.
  • Viewing user activity and clearing sessions.
  • Granting additional access to users, groups or entire domains.
  • Configuring user, group, folder, protocol and server settings.

The only Management Console functions not available on the iPad are those that require specific files to be uploaded. These functions include:

  • Importing public SSH keys for SFTP authentication. (Creating or selecting existing SSH keys is supported on the iPad.)
  • Uploading logos for web client branding.

How to Connect to Serv-U with an iPad

  1. Make sure your iPad is running iOS v5 or greater. (how to check)
  2. Make sure you are running Serv-U MFT Server - our Serv-U FTP Server package does not support remote administration. (how to check)
  3. Connect to any HTTP or HTTPS Listener on Serv-U with the Safari web browser on your iPad. (By default, these listeners are bound to all of Serv-U IP addresses on TCP ports 80 and 443 respectively.)
  4. Sign on as an administrator to see the main screen of the Serv-U Management Console.
