Feature Rich Serv-U 9.0 and FTP Voyager 15.2 Released!

September 29, 2009

(Helenville, Wisconsin) - is pleased to announce that a new release of the Serv-U File Server and FTP Voyager has been made available to the general public today. The Serv-U 9.0 release features UNICODE support, security enhancements, user management improvements, FTP Voyager JV Synchronize Folders and search, Web Client enhancements, and much more. FTP Voyager improvements include support for 64-bit Windows drag and drop, multiple monitor support, and miscellaneous enhancements. Specifics highlights of this release include:

Serv-U 9.0

  • FULL UNICODE support; supporting file paths, user names, and passwords in any language supported by Windows.
  • FIPS 140-2 support for OpenSSL. SSL and SSH (FTPS, HTTPS, and SFTP) encryption is FIPS 140-2 certified through OpenSSL (Certificate #1051).
  • SSH public key authentication support.
  • Integration DLL API support for software developers to write DLLs to integrate into Serv-U.
  • Windows Authentication for Directory Access rules to eliminate Windows Service network share issues.
  • New user email event used to automatically deliver login information to end-users.
  • Automatic password recovery from the Web Client login page.
  • Email enhancements including the addition of BCC addresses, group emailings, multiple recipients, secure servers, and email retries (helps with gray listing SMTP servers).
  • Log options to purge old log files automatically.
  • Ability to import and export users to and from CSV files.
  • Database (ODBC) enhancements for tables that do not apply.
  • Optional navigation tree in the Management Console.
  • Automatically generated random passwords to help with user management.
  • Windows Vista / 7 style bread crumb navigation bar in the Web Client.
  • Forward and Back navigation buttons and history menu in the Web Client.
  • Natural sorting is used for all lists and directory listings.
  • Much more...

FTP Voyager JV 9.0:

  • Synchronize Folders to mirror folders locally with those on the server, or vice versa.
  • File search using exact file name or wild card searches.
  • Creation of automatic login file for one click access to a server using FTP Voyager JV.
  • Natural sorting is used for file and directory lists.
  • Much more...

FTP Voyager 15.2:

  • Drag and drop support for 64-bit Windows.
  • Multiple monitor support.
  • Much more...

Serv-U's enhancements are focused on three areas: international access, security, and user management enhancements. Serv-U's new UNICODE support allows Serv-U to support all known global character sets within one installation and independent from the user interface languages supported by Serv-U. For example, on the same server running the same copy of Serv-U, Japanese users may upload files with Japanese file names while Russian end-users may upload files with Russian file names. At the same time a Chinese administrator may maintain user accounts in Simplified Chinese. Serv-U's international changes and regional language support (both for administration and client-side) make Serv-U a truly global file server solution.

Serv-U's security enhancements give Serv-U customers even stronger assurance that their data is protected. With Serv-U 9.0, we've added SSH public key authentication - one of the most secure forms of authentication - and we've added FIPS 140-2 support via OpenSSL. While running in FIPS 140-2 mode, Serv-U eliminates the use of all less-secure forms of encryption.

Finally, Serv-U enhances user management by adding events for new user creation, automatic random password generation, end-user password recovery, and single-click administrator password recovery. User accounts can be created with just a couple clicks, and login information is automatically delivered to the end-user. In addition, Serv-U adds end-user password recovery, eliminating the problem most network administrators have with their end-users and their lost passwords. For complete Serv-U release notes visit:
