  • Corrected an issue where the partially uploaded, corrupted files were not deleted automatically when the internet connection was interrupted during a file upload to the file share.
  • Corrected an LDAP issue where the OU membership was not parsed for an LDAP user, unless that user also belonged to at least one security group.
  • Corrected an issue where browsing to select the file share repository folder did not insert the full path if the folder was selected without navigating into it.
  • Corrected an issue where for users authenticating through Windows Authentication, it might not have been possible to use the file sharing feature without the server administrator granting domain users access to the file sharing repository on the system.
  • Corrected a Linux issue where Serv-U did not load the LibGD properly on distributions using version 3 of the LibGD package. Serv-U now attempts to load the latest package using a symbolic link which is present on most distributions.
  • Corrected a Linux installer issue where Serv-U and Serv-U Gateway services were not removed during an uninstallation.
  • Corrected a Linux installer issue where the console mode install of Serv-U Gateway did not respect the user's choices regarding installing as a service and running the Gateway after installation.
  • Corrected a potential security issue where cookies delivered over HTTPS before the user logs in were not marked with the "secure" attribute. These cookies did not contain confidential data, but could cause warnings in security scanning software.
  • Corrected a potential security issue where Serv-U did not set the "no-store" property in the Cache-Control of HTTP response headers for files that should not be cached.
  • Corrected a potential security issue where Serv-U could reveal valid login IDs using the HTTP password recovery feature that reported a distinct error message when an invalid login ID was supplied.
  • Corrected a potential security issue where certain cookies could be susceptible to XSS/HTML injections. These cookies did not contain confidential data but could cause warnings in security scanning software.
  • Corrected a potential security issue where certain HTTP request parameters could be susceptible to XSS/HTML injections. These vulnerabilities were found using security scanning software.
  • Corrected an issue where the SMTP notification text was running over the boundary of the File Sharing Settings area in the File Sharing tab of the Limits and Settings page when Internet Explorer was used.
  • Corrected an FTP Voyager JV issue where the launch page showed Google Chrome instructions on an Opera15+ browser.
  • Corrected a number of Web Client user interface issues.
  • Corrected a Mobile Web Client issue where the Logout button caused the browser to enter into a recursive redirect state.
  • Corrected a Mobile Web Client issue where the copyright information was not displayed correctly.
  • Corrected a Web Client Pro issue where dialogs were pushed behind the browser window on Mac OSX operating systems.
  • Corrected a Web Client Pro issue introduced with JRE1.7_45, where a JRE security prompt was displayed regarding javascript-to-java calls.

  • Updated the layout of the FTP Voyager JV "Synchronize Folders" dialog.
Bug Fixes:
  • Corrected a serious SSL bug, affecting HTTPS and FTPS, where connections that failed to complete SSL negotiation could cause other connections to fail. This problem appeared mostly while using Web Client Pro or FTP Voyager JV while downloading or uploading on a very busy server. Transfers would intermittently fail or appear to be frozen.
  • Corrected a bug where disconnecting the current administrative session while remotely configuring would cause Serv-U to crash.
  • Corrected a bug when using upload / download ratios could cause Serv-U to crash.
  • Corrected an FTPS SSL data socket closure problem to recognize client-side SSL_shutdown and socket closure to prevent erroneous "426 Data connection unexpectedly closed, file transfer $PathName aborted by client.". This only occurred with certain FTPS clients connecting locally (127.0.0.1 or ::1).
  • Corrected a Linux HTTPS bug where SIGPIPE was not being handled (ignored) causing Serv-U to crash through OpenSSL.
  • Corrected a Linux HTTP/S bug where prematurely closed sockets could cause Serv-U to crash on very fast networks.
  • Corrected an HTTP/S download bug where Serv-U would not recognize a canceled download until the session closed (logout or timeout).
  • Corrected an HTTPS problem, introduced in Serv-U 12.0.0.2, where SSL error log items were added to the log due to how Microsoft Internet Explorer sometimes prematurely terminates SSL negotiations.
  • Corrected a Serv-U / Serv-U Gateway bug where Serv-U was not closing rejected incoming connections in Serv-U Gateway.
  • Corrected a bug where moving database groups to regular groups caused the loss of those moved groups between Serv-U starts and stops.
  • Corrected a bug where background user account maintenance would load user accounts but not unload them causing memory usage to grow to appear like Serv-U had a memory leak.
  • Corrected a bug where background user account maintenance would cause a memory leak for very large database categories.
  • Corrected a bug where database users were being loaded unnecessarily for a logged in user when using HTTP/S.
  • Corrected a bug where the "User Auto Disable" event was not being triggered for database users.
  • Corrected a bug where the "User Deleted" event was being triggered for database users instead of the "User Auto Deleted" event.
  • Corrected a bug where the tray management console session would appear in the session list (under Server Activity) when an administrative password was set. The session was shown with a very large session number.
  • Corrected a bug where the tray would become unresponsive on a very busy server, usually with more than 50 connections from localhost (127.0.0.1 or ::1).
  • Corrected a bug when using Serv-U Gateway; a socket handle, in certain cases, would not be closed prior to attempting to connect to a Serv-U Gateway, causing a minor memory leak.
  • Corrected a MLST bug when listing a UNC path in Windows, instead of identifying the UNC path as a directory, it was being identified as a file.
  • Corrected a bug where ratios were not working for HTTP/S.
  • Corrected a bug where events would not trigger when all event rules were disabled. This bug did not occur if no event rules were defined or at least one event rule was enabled.
  • Corrected a bug where Serv-U was incorrectly counting the number of users when some users were automatically disabled.
  • Corrected a Linux RMDA (FTP/S) and HTTP/S directory deletion bug where not all files were being deleted in very large directories mapped to Windows NTFS network shares causing directory deletion to fail due to the underlying file system.
  • Corrected an HTTP/S listing bug where Windows shortcuts' file dates and times were not using the target's information when this feature was enabled.
  • Corrected an SFTP (via SSH2) bug where SFTP clients using 0 (zero) for the initial directory read request ID would appear to hang when listing empty directories.
  • Corrected an SFTP (via SSH2) bug uploading or downloading empty files would not change Serv-U's file statistics due to the random access nature of the protocol (SFTP). If a file is closed where no bytes were transferred but the file was open for read-only, a download is counted. If a file is closed where no bytes were transferred but the file was open for write-only, an upload is counted.
  • Corrected an FTP/S PASV/EPSV bug where Serv-U would not respond with a "425" failure code when it was unable to allocate a passive listener socket. This problem appeared on very busy servers that used a small passive port range.
  • Corrected a Management Console bug where the "Maximum size of directory contents" input in the "Directory Access Rule" dialog was misaligned when using a Internet Explorer web browser.
  • Corrected a Management Console bug where registering Serv-U could cause the "Edition Information" group box height to become too small.
  • Corrected a bug where HTML error pages would display branding while branding was disabled.
  • Corrected a Management Console bug where the buttons under the Domain and Server logs could become misaligned when increasing or decreasing the window size.
  • Corrected a Management Console bug where the text inside of buttons was vertically misaligned when using a Firefox browser.
  • Corrected a Management Console bug where the inherited value for "Use Custom HTML" in "Domain Limits & Settings" was not being saved correctly.
  • Corrected a Management Console bug where the "Navigation" menu could produce javascript errors if a mouse over event occurred before the menu was loaded.
  • Corrected a Management Console bug where "textarea" inputs would produce a scrollbar when using a Safari browser.
  • Corrected a Web Client bug where "Favorites" in the "History" navigation dropdown would submit an empty path and not list the directory.
  • Corrected a Web Client bug where certain button states were not being automatically updated when Web Client Pro was enabled or disabled.
  • Corrected a Web Client bug where crumb bar paths would not work correctly when using a network path starting with a double slash ("//").
  • Corrected a Web Client Pro bug where simultaneously deleting a large number of individual files would cause a slow down.
  • Corrected a Web Client Pro bug where a directory that was already listed would send unnecessary relist commands for each child item located within it.
  • Corrected a Web Client Pro bug where the web page would send unnecessary requests to Serv-U for toolbar button states.
  • Corrected a Web Client Pro bug where "Empty" directories were transferred right after they were listed when "Automatically Start Transfers" was turned off.
  • Corrected a Web Client Pro bug where the "Copy, but keep both files" option within the file overwrite dialog was not assigning a new number when the file was restarted.
  • Corrected a Web Client Pro bug where a file that is being transferred may fail because the parent directory was in the process of being created.
  • Corrected a Web Client Pro bug where a recursive state which processes the active transfer could occur after a "cancelled, paused, or stopped" command was issued. This would only occur when the overwrite confirmation is suppressed and configured to overwrite the destination.
  • Corrected a Web Client Pro bug where the overall "Completion" time was invalid.
  • Corrected a Web Client Pro bug where the "Completion" information for parent items would show "N/A" when several small files were being processed concurrently.

Serv-U Version 10.3.0.1

Serv-U 10.3.0.1 was released November 16, 2010. A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

Features:
  • Added numeric server-side sorting for directory listings when running on Windows 7 or Windows Server 2003 R2 or greater. Numeric sorting sorts listings so numeric values are sorted more naturally, for example: "File1.fid, File11.fid, File22.fid" is now sorted "File1.fid, File2.fid, File11.fid".
  • Changed event rule filtering wildcard usage to disallow the use of "*", "?", "[", and "]" as a literal character. These wildcard characters are never part of the string comparison even when preceded with "\".
  • Added system variable "$OSCaseSensitive".
  • Improved directory size abort responsiveness. This is especially noticeable when getting the directory size for very deeply nested subdirectories containing less than 100 files or subdirectories.
  • Updated zlib (compression) library from 1.2.4 to 1.2.5.
  • Changed HTTP delivery of .jar files so the content is not compressed. JAR files are already compressed.
  • Improved HTTP "If-Modified-Since" support to ignore file dates and time differences of less than one second.
  • Added numeric sorting for directory listings in the Web Client.
  • Added support for accessing the Mobile Web Client using the Apple iPad.
  • Added Web Client icons for Microsoft Office 2007 files.
  • Updated Web Client button icons.

  • Added support to the Web Client for using the "Context Menu" keyboard button for showing context menus.
  • Changed the placement of the "GO" button in the Web Client which is now located next to the crumb bar.
  • Updated FTP Voyager JV logo to new style.
  • Updated FTP Voyager JV toolbar, pane, and menu icons to new style.
  • Improved FTP Voyager JV delivery to conserve server-side memory.
  • Added "natural" numeric sorting for listings inside FTP Voyager JV.
  • Added "Remove All Cancelled" option to FTP Voyager JV's transfer options, which is hidden by default from the transfer pane's toolbar.
  • Changed "Stop After File Completes" and "Skip" buttons in FTP Voyager JV to be hidden by default from the transfer pane's toolbar.
  • Added a detection feature to FTP Voyager JV that changes the view to thumbnails if the majority of the files are images.
  • Updated the FTP Voyager JV "Properties" dialog to show the size fields for remote drives.
  • Changed the sorting routines in FTP Voyager JV to run inside a worker thread instead of the Event Dispatch Thread (EDT). This allows the user to perform other tasks while the sort algorithms are running.
  • Added a wait cursor for time-consuming operations in FTP Voyager JV (i.e., sorting and listing directories).
  • Changed "Dockable" to "Docked" in FTP Voyager JV to reflect the state of the dockable window.
  • Added the ability to save the "Locked Navigation" state between sessions.
Bug Fixes:
  • Corrected an internal HTTP bug where, during login, certain internal values were not being applied correctly for the user account when transfers for the same user account, but a different session, were in progress.
  • Corrected an SSH2 security bug when not allowing password login; Serv-U would allow login to a user account with no password specified.

  • Corrected a bug where the "SITE CHMOD" FTP command would not return failure when Serv-U was unable to set the file attributes.
  • Corrected an FTPS problem when using download bandwidth limits; certain FTP clients, using GnuTLS, would be unable to connect or receive directory listings on very fast (local) connections. The data channel socket was being closed prior to complete TLS termination.
  • Corrected a logging problem where failed HTTP uploads and downloads would show an accumulation of bytes for a failed transfer instead of the number of bytes for the single transfer.
  • Corrected a bug in the Management Console where it was possible to save event filters with an empty name.
  • Corrected a bug in the Management Console where, under certain scenarios, editing listeners may cause the wrong IP type to be saved.
  • Corrected a bug in the tray application where the automatic update check would always be performed even when explicitly disabled in the About box's Update Check page.

  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where the number of files for a multi-transfer row was not formatted correctly.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where remote drive labels were not formatted correctly.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where tool tips were being displayed for right-click menus.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where the "Do not ask again" check box after pressing "Execute These Actions" on the Synchronize Folders dialog was failing to save between sessions.

Features:
  • Increased FTP, FTPS, HTTP, and HTTPS download performance on very fast networks.
  • Changed the default *NIX style permissions value to "rwxrwxrwx" and changed listings so that directories and Windows shortcuts (when not being treated as the target) include the "x" permissions to be more consistent with UNIX and Linux.
  • Changed the rename, delete, and remove directory operations to operate on Windows links (.LNK) files instead of the target file or directory to add consistency with Windows, UNIX, and Linux.
  • Moved the "Automatically check directory sizes during upload" limit from the advanced section to the data transfer section in the Limits and Settings for the server, domain, users, and groups.
  • Added Group Administrator help content to User's Manual.
  • Added Management Console help for event filtering.
  • Added Web Client help for favorites.
  • Added a new auto login parameter for sorting on a specified column upon login to the Web Client.
  • Added the "Lock Navigation" feature to FTP Voyager JV. Users can lock a local directory listing to a remote directory listing (when a listing occurs, the other listing is updated).
  • Moved the confirmation controls from the "General" page to the new "Confirmation" page inside FTP Voyager JV's Preferences dialog.
  • Changed FTP Voyager JV's remote directory listings so the UI responds a little faster when files are received from the server.
  • Added a notification dialog to FTP Voyager JV after the user presses the "Execute These Actions" button on the "Synchronize Folders" dialog. This lets the user know if the actions have been sent to the transfer queue.
  • Added FTP Voyager JV icons to the JNLP file which allows Java Webstart to show these during certificate confirmation and within the Java application cache manager.
  • Removed the "Other RhinoSoft.com Products" dialog from the installer.
  • Added "Russian" as supported installation language in Serv-U User's Manual.
  • Removed DNS4Me references from Serv-U User's Manual.
  • Added Web Client Parameter information to Serv-U User's Manual.
  • Removed Windows 2000 from supported OS list in Serv-U User's Manual. Microsoft has discontinued support for this operating systems and no longer provides DLLs and libraries to developers that are compatible on this operating systems.
Bug Fixes:
  • Corrected a bug where Serv-U would not go into FIPS 140-2 mode due to compiler and Windows SDK changes.
  • Corrected a security bug, introduced in Serv-U 9.2.0.1, when creating a directory. It was possible to create a directory, when using virtual paths and various combinations of permissions, where the end-user did not have permission to create a directory.
  • Corrected a security bug where certain Web Client invalid URL parameters would cause Serv-U to crash.
  • Corrected a bug where Serv-U would crash when using certain notations of IPv6 addresses to allow or deny access.
  • Changed the installer to require Windows XP with Service Pack 2 and greater due to Microsoft changes in certain libraries.
  • Corrected an internal bug introduced in 10.1.0.0, when moving to Developer Studio 2010, the number of sockets was limited to the Microsoft default of 64.
  • Corrected an FTP upload bug when uploading a file over directory size limits, Serv-U would properly respond with an error, but then improperly respond again with another error when the client closed the socket. This would only happen intermittently on very fast connections and very fast computers.
  • Corrected a bug where Domain or Group Administrators were unable to disconnect, abort, or chat with (FTP only) allowed sessions.
  • Corrected a bug when using the $IPName variable in a disabled user login event, Serv-U would wait for the reverse DNS name resolution (or timeout) before allowing the login. This reverse DNS name resolution delay is still in-place, but only when an event using the $IPName variable is enabled.
  • Corrected a bug when importing improperly formatted complex user attributes, Serv-U could crash.
  • Corrected a bug in the Web Client where sizing the height of the window to less than the minimum size of the file list produced an error.
  • Corrected a bug where a drive label containing an ampersand character (&) would cause the Management Console Browse dialog to hang.

  • Corrected a bug where Windows Shortcuts targets were always located (resolved) even if the link files were not configured to be accessed as files.
  • Corrected a bug where the maximum directory size setting for directory access rules did not appear to be functioning during a file upload due to Windows Vista and above file caching. This has been corrected by flushing the Windows' internal file buffers prior to checking a directory size.
  • Corrected a bug where the custom login page title and text was not being selected when a domain was configured using virtual hosts.
  • Corrected a bug where the default login page language, "remember me" setting, browser warning setting, and show languages setting was not being selected when a domain was configured using virtual hosts.

  • Added support for Windows 64-bit (AMD64/x64). Serv-U 64-bit is installed automatically when installing on a Windows 64-bit computer.
  • Added IPv6 support. This feature includes separate listeners for IPv6 addresses, IPv6 CIDR support, IPv6 access rules, and logging. Serv-U supports IPv6 without losing any functionality supported with IPv4.
  • Added a new groups tab for Windows Organizational Units (OU). This new feature gives administrators finer control over Windows authenticated sessions.
  • Added "Group Administrator" and "Read-Only Group Administrator" support. Group Administrators can administer users, administer groups, and monitor sessions within the same group(s).
  • Added support for the EPRT (Extended Port) and EPSV (Extended Passive) FTP commands. These commands support both IPv4 and IPv6.
  • Added the ability to specify non-absolute message files for the FTP CWD, XCWD, CDUP, and XCUP commands so that message files (such as ".message") may be presented as part of a command response.
  • Added event rules to configure events so they fire only under specified conditions.
  • Added a Directory Listing limit to the server, domain, group, and user where an absolute or non-absolute message file may be specified. When users change to the specified directory the message is displayed in a dialog (within the Web Client and FTP Voyager JV) and returned via part of the FTP response. This feature in not supported by SFTP.
  • Added the ability to hide from clients whether or not a file or directory is compressed or encrypted. These new limits are available per user, group, domain, or the entire server.

  • Added the ability to limit HTTP media playing during certain times of day.
  • Added additional administrative log information to help identify detailed information about administrative activities.
  • Added server logging information about WinSock initialization including the version number in-use and initialization failure.
  • Added server logging information about the version of Windows.
  • Added triggered event logging. Information is placed in the log whenever an event is triggered. This is useful when implementing events.
  • Added new system variables: $LoginID (session login ID like $Name but refers to administrator login ID, not the target user in administrative operations), $OSAndPlatform (outputs the operating system name and platform)
  • Added new path variable %USER_FULL_NAME% to complement %USER%. %USER_FULL_NAME% replaces the variable with the user accounts "Full Name" field.

  • Corrected a bug where FTP message files and the user's welcome message would interpret the "\" and the following character as special characters and cause messages to appear garbled when using FTP.
  • Corrected an FTP data channel bug, introduced in Serv-U 9.4.0.0, where Serv-U did not recognize a PASV/EPSV command had already been issued prior to uploading a file when uploading very small files (or empty files) on a very fast connection. This problem only occurred with a certain FTP client.
  • Corrected an installer bug where upgrading from Serv-U <= 6.4 when an administrator password was applied, login to the Management Console would always fail.
  • Corrected an SFTP (via SSH2) bug where Serv-U would check directory size too frequently and when not necessary during file uploads.
  • Corrected an SFTP (via SSH2) upload bug where random access writes to files was incorrectly appending to the file.

  • Corrected an SSL shutdown bug where, under rare circumstances, Serv-U would miss socket shutdowns during uploads causing the client to appear to hang upon completion of an upload. This applies to FTPS and HTTPS only, SFTP (via SSH2) is unaffected.
Management Console:
  • Corrected a bug in the help files where extended character codes for single quotes were not being rendered correctly.
  • Corrected a bug where bubble tip messages where not independently closable when multiple bubble tips where displayed simultaneously.
  • Corrected a bug when Domain Administrators entered an unavailable system variable, the error message caused the Management Console to freeze until refreshed.
  • Corrected a bug where the "Lock in Home Directory" check box in the User Wizard dialog was overriding inherited values and did not allow for the inherited value to be used for the user being created.

Features:
  • Added functionality for keyboard arrow keys to toggle focus between buttons for FTP Voyager JV confirmation dialogs.
  • Changed data socket shutdown to be more forgiving of FTPS clients that do not perform SSL shutdown correctly. Affected clients would appear to "lock up" when performing directory listings or downloading files via FTPS (FTP over SSL). The solution is to add a 5-second timeout after SSL shutdown has begun.
  • Added right-click context menus to the Events list in the Management Console.
Bug Fixes:

Serv-U Version 9.4.0.0

Serv-U 9.4.0.0 was released March 23, 2010. A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

Features:
  • Added Portuguese (Brazil) Web Client support.
  • Updated Spanish strings.
  • Added Spanish Management Console help translation.
  • Added the ability to disable user accounts at the group level as well as at the user level.
  • Added new static font properties to the Management Console and Web Client for better visual appearance.
  • Added dynamic sizing in the Image Preview dialog for better visual appearance when using different screen resolutions.
  • Changed Domain Administrators so that they can view information about themselves.
  • Improved hover events for dialogs in the Management Console and Web Client to decrease CPU usage.
  • Changed the log file lines when listening on "<< Any IP Address >>" so that the "0.0.0.0" IP address is shown and all IP addresses are shown in parentheses.
  • Added IPv6 addresses to the Serv-U Tray's About dialog Network Information page.
  • Changed the STOU (store unique) FTP command to accept and return full paths instead of using the current directory only. When a full path is not specified the current working directory is used. This is to remain consistent with Serv-U versions <= 6.4.
  • Changed the STOU (store unique) FTP command 150 response to include the full path name of the new file. This is to remain consistent with Serv-U versions <= 6.4.
  • Changed FTP PORT connections back to the client to be more forgiving. RFC 959 (section 3.2, paragraph 1; section 5.2, paragraph 2) requires the socket to bind to the command channel port -1 (L-1). However, in Windows, this may cause the socket error WSAEADDRINUSE (10048). When this specific error occurs on the data channel, Serv-U attempts to connect without binding to the command channel port -1 (L-1).
  • Added an FTP LIST/NLST command option to list a specific file's full path name as part of the listing when a specific file's listing information is requested.
  • Added a directory listing setting for server-side sorted listings using natural language comparison like Windows Explorer (i.e., FTP and SSH listings). This setting is available at the server, domain, user, and group levels. The default is enabled.
  • Added an error message when attempting to use the tray application's menu option to change the Windows service setting fails.
  • Signed Serv-U.exe and Serv-U-Tray.exe so that Windows recognizes Rhino Software, Inc. as the publisher.
  • Updated Microsoft DLLs to the latest release.
  • Updated OpenSSL libraries from 0.9.8k to 0.9.8m.
  • Updated zlib (compression) library from 1.2.3 to 1.2.4 and built with Developer Studio 2008.
  • Updated the FTP Voyager JV code certificate, which now expires on March 10, 2013.
  • Added a timestamp to the signing of FTP Voyager JV's JAR files allowing the Java Runtime to validate FTP Voyager JV's JAR files after their certificate's expiration date.
  • Changed the FTP Voyager JV "Save Login" dialog controls so they cannot be changed to reflect a different configuration other than the current login information.
  • Changed the layout of the FTP Voyager JV "Save Login" and "Preferences" dialogs to a standard layout.
  • Updated the FTP Voyager JV JIDE user interface library to version 2.7.7.
  • Changed the User Collection Combo box to locale sort its contents upon loading of the user pages in the Management Console.
Bug Fixes:
  • Corrected a bug where Serv-U could crash with a very large number of concurrent HTTP requests.
  • Corrected a bug where Serv-U could crash when HTTP command and/or reply screen logging was enabled and the log tab was selected.
  • Corrected a bug where it was possible to change the local administrator configuration by changing server settings, causing undesired results for tray application administration.
  • Corrected a bug where requiring reverse DNS to login at the server level, would cause tray configuration to become unavailable.
  • Corrected an Integration DLL bug where Serv-U would not recognize loaded group names.
  • Corrected an internal file security check where it was possible for domain read-only administrators to gain access system level files. Other internal checks would have prevented access to unauthorized data. This was a very minor security bug which had no affect on Serv-U's overall security.
  • Corrected a security bug when importing users, restricted administrators could create user accounts outside their home directory.
  • Corrected a security bug when exporting users, restricted administrators could see a user's full path for home directory, virtual paths, and directory access rules.
  • Corrected a security bug where a restricted domain administrator could create a user or group that was not locked in the user's home directory.
  • Corrected a bug where CIDR IP access rules were not being interpreted correctly for deny rules.
  • Corrected a bug where Windows Users, granted administrative privileges, and didn't have write permissions to Serv-U's data directory, Serv-U was unable to save its configuration changes.
  • Corrected an SSL shutdown bug where an open SSL socket was being closed while the server and client were performing an SSL shutdown exchange (SSL_shutdown()). This problem appeared when listing very large directories with certain FTP clients using GnuTLS.
  • Corrected a bug where toggling FIPS 140-2 mode would not work. Restarting Serv-U would change to the desired FIPS mode.
  • Corrected a licensing bug where sessions that were not logged in were being counted against the license.
  • Corrected an FTP bug where Serv-U was not returning an error response to LIST, MLSD, RETR, THMB, STOU, or STOR when a data channel had not been specified with either the PORT or PASV command.
  • Corrected an FTP LIST/NLST switch processing bug when specifying a directory format (-h:DOS, -h:IIS, -h:UNIX) any following path names would be ignored.
  • Corrected a logging bug where system administrators were being identified as domain administrators.
  • Corrected a database problem when using PostgreSQL and adding columns to tables. PostgreSQL's syntax for adding multiple columns to a table is different than other SQL servers requiring the "ADD COMMAND" text before each new column name.
  • Corrected a bug where the "FileTransferStats_BytesUploaded", "FileTransferStats_BytesDownloaded", "FileTransferStats_FilesUploaded", and "FileTransferStats_FilesDownloaded" columns were not being written to the database with the other runtime statistics for database users. File transfer statistics were being cleared when viewing database user statistics after the last session for a user logged out. This bug was introduced in 9.2.0.1.
  • Corrected a bug when deleting a database group, user membership in that group was not being deleted.
  • Corrected several minor database user and group bugs.
  • Corrected a bug where the user added and deleted events were not being fired for administrator users with these events.
  • Corrected a tray application service installation / removal problem from the when UAC was enabled, Serv-U was unable to switch from being started as a service to stand-alone and stand-alone to a service.
  • Corrected two string formatting errors in the Spanish translation.
  • Corrected one string formatting error in the Swedish translation.
  • Corrected a Web Client bug where the browse button on the upload dialog was partially hidden when using Firefox on Linux Fedora.
  • Corrected a Web Client bug where the background for the Image scroll buttons in the Image Preview dialog were not transparent in Internet Explorer 6.
  • Corrected a Management Console and Web Client bug where dialogs would be placed too high when the page was scrolled down.
  • Corrected a Management Console bug where clicking repeatedly on the "Add" button in the users' page then pressing the "Cancel" button in the user dialog would cause a script error in Internet Explorer.
  • Corrected a Management Console bug where combobox lists would pop-up at the wrong position on the page when using a Google Chrome or Safari browser.
  • Corrected a Management Console bug where the "Member of Groups" list, in the user properties dialog, was not showing all groups when the list reached a certain size.
  • Corrected a Management Console bug where combobox lists could become too large and span past the viewable display area with no scrolling available.
  • Corrected an FTP Voyager JV bug where the "Login" dialog would fail to launch if an error occurred during an automatic login operation.
  • Corrected an FTP Voyager JV bug where the "Save Login" dialog "Is Secure" check box was not checked when connected securely.
  • Corrected an FTP Voyager JV bug where a file or folder name would not revert back to the original file name if a rename operation failed.
  • Corrected an FTP Voyager JV bug where the status bar was not showing the correct file path for certain local directories (e.g., Desktop, Computer).
  • Corrected an FTP Voyager JV bug where the "Select All" and "Invert Selection" operations were causing the focus to move away from the file list.

  • Corrected a bug where the failed upload event would fire even for successful uploads.
  • Corrected a bug, introduced in 9.2.0.1, where database users' expiration was not being loaded within the grid causing expired users to appear in the list. Expired users attempting to login would still be denied.
  • Corrected a SQL statement problem where customized templates were being changed for the addition of database categories. The change now only changes the "= ?" for the NULL statement request to "IS NULL".
  • Corrected an upgrade bug from Serv-U versions <= 6.4.0.6 would not upgrade non-ASCII characters such as home directories and user names. This conversion bug was introduced in 9.0.0.1 with Serv-U's support of UNICODE.
  • Corrected a bug in the SQL template dialog where the "select a value" dialog would not appear when the Edit button was selected.
  • Corrected a bug in the Management Console where fonts in Korean language browsers would not align properly in text fields and controls.
  • Corrected a bug in the Management Console where the anti-hammer connection limit, for Connection Settings, was not updated with the save button.
  • Corrected a bug in the Management Console where an error would occur when trying to edit a user with a "#" symbol in their login ID.

Features:
  • Added a thumbnail image preview scroller to the Image Preview dialog in the Web Client.
  • Added Web Client support for Windows mobile phones.
  • Added Web Client support for Android OS mobile phones.
  • Added PhotoShop, Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe InDesign extension icons for the Web Client.
  • Added Spanish Web Client support.
  • Added the time period User and Group statistics were collected on the User and Groups statistics page.
  • Added database user categories for better administration organization and better system performance for large numbers of database users.
  • Improved database user listing for large number of users by 30% or more.
  • Improved user group lookup when a very large number of groups is used.
Bug Fixes:
  • Corrected a bug in Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 where IE would make requests of JavaScript instead of files(appears to be a buffer problem in IE). The symptom would present itself in the Management Console as a "Permission Denied" page. This is a work-around for Microsoft Internet Explorer's (version 8) bug.
  • Corrected a tray bug when using Microsoft Internet Explorer as the default browser. Changing from using Windows' Default Browser to the tray's embedded browser would cause the Management Console to show the "Loading" dialog until being restarted.
  • Corrected a security issue where it was possible to see directories above a user's root directory.
  • Corrected an SFTP (via SSH2) bug where certain clients requesting both read and write access to a non-existent file, would not be able to upload or create that file unless the file already existed.
  • Corrected several Simplified Chinese translation errors.
  • Corrected a Simplified and Traditional Chinese translation error where the "SSH public key" was translated as "SSH private key".

  • Corrected a bug in the New User Collection dialog where the enter key did not save the added collection.
  • Corrected a bug in the Group dialog where focus was not being placed on the Group Name input.
  • Corrected a bug in the User Group Membership dialog where double click did not remove the selected group from the "Member of Groups" list.
  • Corrected a bug in the user list where sorting was lost when changing collections.
  • Corrected a permissions bug, introduced in Serv-U 8.1.0.1, where when denying create directory permission to a parent directory, but allowing it for a sub-directory, Serv-U would not allow directory creation in the sub-directory.
  • Corrected a bug where Serv-U could crash when using 3 or more local administrators, requires special undocumented parameters to cause, and only occurs locally.
  • Corrected a bug where renaming a user Category would cause Serv-U to crash if a user in that Category was logged in.
  • Corrected a bug in the Web Client where resizing the window, in Internet Explorer, when in thumbnail mode would cause an error.

  • Corrected a bug where uninstallation might not delete the "C:\ProgramData\RhinoSoft.com\Serv-U" directory.
  • Corrected a tray bug, introduced in 9.1.0.0, where the menus were using the wrong font on Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows 2003 Server.

 

Serv-U Version 9.1.0.0

Serv-U 9.1.0.0 was released November 17, 2009. A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

Features:
  • Added Web Client support for BlackBerry mobile phones.
  • Added the ability to filter user and group lists in the Management Console.
  • Added support for interpreting (line feed) characters as end-of-line markers when transferring files in ASCII mode. When enabled end-of-line markers are converted to sequences. This transfer limit applies to both FTP uploads and downloads.
  • Added an option to the Serv-U Tray to start Serv-U as a service or manually.
  • Changed database user storage to store only required user attributes at login, logout, and user password change. These changes allow database administrators to manage their database much more independently.
  • Added support for PostgreSQL databases.
  • Changed transfer speed limits so they are applied to active sessions even when the session previously had no limit. Previous versions did this only if active sessions had a limit already in-place (i.e., a speed limit was changed, not added).
  • Added additional security checks to ensure Serv-U application integrity.
  • Added the ability to search drop lists using keyboard presses in the Management Console.
  • Added the ability to close dialogs using the Escape key in the Management Console and Web Client.
  • Added support for CIDR notation for IP ranges in addition to Serv-U's wildcard method.
  • Added the ability to permanently block an IP address using the anti-hammer rule for the domain or server. When triggered an IP address is added to the top of the IP access rules permanently. When added, the server's configuration files are updated so the IP address remains blocked even between Serv-U restarts.
  • Added the "FTP password type" password limit to the Server, Domain, and Group levels in addition to the user level. A global or group setting may be applied to use MD4/MD5 OTP passwords for FTP.
  • Added "MaxDomainSessions", "MaxDomainSessionsIP", "MaxDomainUploadRate", and "MaxDomainDownloadRate" to the server limits & settings in addition to the domain limits and settings.
  • Added the ability to export the users in all collections and database from the user's tab and externally with the Serv-U-Setup.exe program.
  • Added a drop down list of available IP addresses in the Listener dialog and in the Domain Creation Wizard.
  • Added the ability to specify %HOME%, %USER%, or %DOMAIN_HOME% as part of the SSH public key path.
  • Added additional Domain Administrator restrictions so a domain administrator cannot change the following limits: "MaxDomainSessions", "MaxDomainUploadRate, "MaxDomainDownloadRate"
  • Changed configuration, account configuration, startup log, and data files location to "C:\ProgramData" (ALLUSERSPROFILE environment variable) in Windows Vista and above on new Serv-U installations that are installed in "C:\Program Files" only. This is required on Windows 7+ when UAC is in effect.
  • Removed some unused HTTP files.
  • Removed some Server and Domain session management code that was duplicated elsewhere. This change will save a small amount of RAM for servers with many concurrent connections.
Bug Fixes:
  • Corrected "Cookie Buffer Overflow Vulnerability" (Secunia SA37228).
  • Corrected a bug where Serv-U could crash after disabling an active user.
  • Corrected a bug where user accounts whose login ID ended with a period character were not being shown in the users grid.
  • Corrected a bug where downloading 0-byte files using FTPS could cause the data channel to be disconnected during SSL negotiation causing 0-byte downloads to intermittently fail.
  • Corrected a bug where the Advanced Directory Access rule password was being saved incorrectly when using a database. When using MS SQL the bug would appear as a lost directory access rule. When using other databases, the password would just be invalid; if using these advanced settings and storing to a database, modification of the user record would cause improper access to the directory access rule. This problem only occurred on MS SQL 2005+ because MS SQL throws an error instead of truncating the value.
  • Corrected a bug when saving encrypted strings to database or .Archive file, Serv-U would archive values even when the encrypted string was empty.
  • Corrected a bug in the Web Client where the "Playlist" button would not work when in "Search" mode.
  • Corrected a bug where user lookups would occur after a session's login ID was cleared. This resulted in unnecessary user and database user lookups.
  • Corrected a bug where database users' statistics were not being loaded correctly after loading data from the database.
  • Corrected a bug when FTP Voyager JV, the .jar files were being downloaded every time FTP Voyager JV was started. Now, when unchanged, Java uses its cached copy of the FTP Voyager JV .jar files.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV, where the Last-Modified timestamp of a file that was uploaded from a non-English operating system would fail.
  • Corrected a bug in the Web Client where focus was being lost when using the keyboard to navigate the file list.
  • Corrected a bug when upgrading from Serv-U 6.4 and lower when using a database domain, installation / conversion would cause the installer to crash.
  • Corrected a bug when upgrading from Serv-U 6.4 and lower when using a database domain, group membership for users would not be imported under certain rare circumstances.
  • Corrected a bug when upgrading from Serv-U 6.4 and lower when using a database domain, import would not work correctly if the old table names matched the new default table names in Serv-U 7+.
  • Corrected a database bug when upgrading from Serv-U 6.4 or lower, and using the table names "User" or "Group" would cause the upgrade to fail.
  • Corrected a database bug where daily session counts were not being written to the database.
  • Corrected a bug where Tray messages boxes (confirmation, error, warning) would be displayed without text in all languages.
  • Corrected an SFTP logging bug where the SSH_FXP_REALPATH was not being logged, just the reply.
  • Corrected an SSH2 problem where Serv-U was not responding to the SSH_MSG_GLOBAL_REQUEST command.
  • Corrected a user group membership problem when changing group membership for a user that is connected, certain variables applying to limits, were not being properly adjusted. For example limiting access by IP address.
  • Corrected a bug where passwords that were stored in an unencrypted form (i.e., clear-text) were not checked letter case sensitive.
  • Corrected a bug where users created with the User Wizard were being stored without encryption.
  • Corrected a Windows 7 UAC problem where Serv-U was unable to communicate with the tray application to identify Serv-U status and enable tray / engine communication.
  • Corrected a problem, introduced in Serv-U 7.0, where the STOU FTP command would append a digit to a specified file name even when the specified file name doesn't exist, an inconsistency with Serv-U versions <= 6.4.

 

Serv-U Version 9.0.0.5

  • Corrected a few Russian Management Console strings.
Bug Fixes:
  • Corrected a bug where hidden files were being listed for MLST / MLSD FTP operations, when hidden files were configured to be hidden (i.e., not returned in the listing).
  • Corrected a bug in the web client where the history navigation would lose its current location in the history list.
  • Corrected a problem where Serv-U could not create private key pair files with passwords when FIPS 140-2 mode was enabled.

  • Added the ability to disable specific database tables. Disabling unused tables can reduce the number of ODBC calls.
  • Changed the default User and Group table names from "User" to "SUUsers" and "Group" to "SUGroups" in order to avoid "reserved" Microsoft SQL keywords. Microsoft reference page: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms189822(SQL.90).aspx
  • Added new FTP system variables: $CurrentUncompressedTransferBytes and $CurrentCompressedTransferBytes
  • Reduced the database column sizes for non string columns by default. This is due to some restrictions by some databases on the total row length.
  • Added "Windows 7" to the $OS system variable.
  • Changed Serv-U's automatic listener recovery (periodically attempts to listen again when unable to listen) so that this feature is disabled when more than 50 domains are defined. This is done to save CPU cycles on slower computers.
  • Automatically create log file directory structure if the parent directory of a specified log file doesn't already exist.
  • Changed the "OPTS UTF8 ON/OFF" command to be available prior to login.
Management Console:
  • Added a domain navigation tree for one-click access to any configuration page, including any server configuration page.
  • Changed the group membership dialog in the Management Console to hide the "Add" and "Remove" arrows when nothing is selected in the corresponding list.
  • A randomly generated password is automatically created when creating new users. The password is fully highlighted so if not desired simply typing a new password over the existing requires no extra work for an administrator.
  • Changed the Domain wizard to prompt either for one-way or two-way password storage.
  • Added the ability to set the advanced properties for database user and group limits.
  • Changed all lists, inside the Management Console, to use "natural sorting" to properly sort items according to the current locale.
  • Changed the default button from "Yes" to "No" in destructive confirmation dialogs. Pressing enter automatically answers "No" instead of "Yes".
  • Changed domain administrator operations to include those shown on the "Settings" tab for the domain "Limits and Settings".
  • Removed the "Windows Authentication" tab for domain administrators.
  • Added the domain events tab for domain administrators.

  • Added "Domain" and "System" admin icons to the users list to identify them from normal users.
  • Added the ability select a private key size (in bits) for SSL certificate creation (1024, 2048, and 4096).
  • Added a Windows Vista & Windows 7 style "bread crumb" navigation bar to the file and directory browse dialogs for easier navigation.
Web Client:
  • Added a powerful file search feature to the Web Client that allows users to recursively search for specified files using exact file name matches or wildcard matches.
  • Added a Windows Vista & Windows 7 style "bread crumb" navigation bar for easier directory navigation.
  • Added a history navigation menu for faster navigation to previously viewed directories.
  • Added the ability to auto play video files in the Web Client by setting a URL parameter (playmedia=1).
  • Changed file and folder list, to use "natural sorting" to properly sort files and folders according to the current locale.
  • Changed the default theme for Windows 7 to use "Windows Vista".
  • Added an alert dialog on the login page to inform users to upgrade to IE8 to improve performance.
Tray:
  • Added a tray option to use the system browser instead of the embedded Internet Explorer. Using the system browser can be faster, depending on the browser, and can reduce the amount of RAM used by the tray application.
  • Improved accuracy of "XX KB", "XX MB", and "XX GB" displays to round up to the next highest value instead of checking for any amount over the unit (as older versions of Windows did). (Tray Application and FTP Voyager JV)
  • Added support for saving the tray's Management Console Window coordinates over multiple monitors
FTP Voyager JV:
  • Added the "Synchronize Folders" feature which allows for easy folder comparison for mirroring either a local or remote folder.
  • Added the ability to search for files and folders within FTP Voyager JV.
  • Added the ability to create an automatic login file for FTP Voyager JV.
  • Added the number of items, number of selected items, and current directory to the status bar of FTP Voyager JV.

Bug Fixes:
  • Corrected a bug in the Management Console where the text in buttons would wrap when using certain languages.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where uploading a file with non-ASCII characters in the file name, Serv-U would receive an incorrect file name.
  • Corrected a problem where Serv-U was unable to operate on UTF-8 encoded file names for FTP, FTPS, and SFTP (via SSH2) when the "Convert URL characters in commands to ASCII" limit was set to "yes". This limit is a very old FTP option, that should probably always be disabled or "no". This limit now only applies to FTP sessions.

 

Serv-U Version 8.2.0.0

Serv-U 8.2.0.0 was released August 3, 2009. A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

Features:
  • Substantially reduced the RAM requirements for servers with many domains and very high traffic servers. Serv-U requires about half of the RAM or less as with previous versions through 7.0.
  • Updated the look and feel for the "Windows | Office 2003" styles for FTP Voyager JV.
  • Added additional checks to prevent high frequency login attempts on a single session (i.e., dictionary login attacks).
  • Serv-U 8.1.0.1 through 8.1.0.3 cached Windows login tokens, user IDS, and passwords; previous versions did not. For potential security reasons, token logging has been removed for login.
  • Improved the load time of the FTP Voyager JV startup page by loading only images that apply to the browser.
Bug Fixes:
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV, introduced in version 8.1.0.1, where the active frame failed to receive focus when the user clicked within the empty space of a grid.
  • Corrected a bug where FTP Voyager JV would fail to launch if certain JavaFX resources could not be loaded.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where sorting drives was being performed on the display name instead of the drive letter.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where sorting special Window directories interfered with the sort results of certain folders and files.
  • Corrected a bug where "Port Forwarding" could prevent FTP Voyager JV from getting a listing from Serv-U. This would only happen if the router's public port was different from Serv-U's private port that was listening for HTTP connections.
  • Corrected a problem when starting Serv-U as a service, the service initialization could fail (timeout) when a very large number of domains were defined.
  • Corrected a bug where French and Italian result strings were being interpreted incorrectly by the browser. In the case of the Web Client, an error message would appear for French and Italian once a file began uploading.
  • Fixed a bug in the User's Group Membership dialog where scrolling would not work correctly when the number of groups in the list exceeded the viewable area of the list.
  • Corrected an SSL/TLS bug where Serv-U would not recognize a closed socket after calling SSL_read() from OpenSSL.

Features:
  • Updated Japanese, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, and Russian strings.
  • Added a new Password Limit to use either one-way (more secure, less functional) or two-way (less secure, more functional) password encryption when storing passwords to disk.
Bug Fixes:
  • Corrected the FTP FEAT response to comply with RFC 2389 (http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2389) so that the listed features are always preceded by a single space, and never the response code. This deviation from the RFC was introduced in Serv-U 7.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV, introduced in version 8.1.0.1, where FTP Voyager JV was not saving the file list column order between sessions.
  • Corrected a bug where a Swedish string warning about the trial expiring could cause the Tray application to crash. Only Swedish installations were affected.
  • Corrected a Web Client problem with the Safari and Opera browsers, when downloading files with spaces in the file name, Safari and Opera would incorrectly use %20 for spaces as part of the file name instead of the actual file name.
  • Corrected a bug where it was impossible to change if passwords are encrypted on disk or not. Introduced in 8.1.0.1.

 

Serv-U Version 8.1.0.1

Serv-U 8.1.0.1 was released July 8, 2009. A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

Features:
  • Added read-only administrator support. Two new administrator user types have been added, "Read-Only System Administrator" and "Read-Only Domain Administrator".
  • Substantially increased internal HTTP parsing to improve the speed of the Management Console and Web Client.
  • Changed localization (translations) internally to use individual string files instead of separate resource DLLs.
  • Converted all ReadMe_??.txt files translations to UTF-8.
  • Eliminated License.txt from the installation, License.rtf is the exclusive licensing file instead.
  • Added support for UNICODE / UTF-8 passwords. This allows passwords to be extended beyond the ASCII characters. NOTE: some FTP clients do not use UTF-8 for S/Key encoding and therefore may fail.
  • Changed the RhinoSoft.com company logo in the "Program Information" tab to the new 3D version.
  • Changed certificate creation to use UTF-8 allowing certificates to contain any character.
  • Changed certificate viewing to decode UTF-8 encoded certificates.
  • Added the ability for the browse dialog in the Management Console to use the specified directory path as the starting point.
  • Added the ability to export users to CSV (comma separated value) files to complement Serv-U-Setup.exe's ability to import. See the Serv-U Knowledge Base for full details.
  • Increased the width of the path fields so that space is more effectively used as a result of the size reduction of the "Browse" button in 8.0.0.7.
  • Improved the availability for user system variables for events that do not have an associated login (e.g., User Delete and User Create).
  • Improved browser error message handling retrieving result codes server-side instead of client side. Saves bandwidth and memory allowing only needed messages to be transferred to the browser.
  • Improved numeric field verification in the management console to provide more specific information about invalid entries.
  • Improved file and directory path field verification in the management console to disallow invalid characters.
  • Changed the group membership to a side-by-side list to make adding and removing membership much more efficient.
  • Added support for the X-Forwarded-For HTTP header to identify the actual IP addresses of client computers. This is primarily set by proxy servers and load balancers.
  • Added cipher information to the active session monitor grid and "Spy & Chat" dialog.
  • Changed SSH login so that the "none" login request, used by most SFTP clients to determine the supported authentication modes, doesn't cause an event to fire and extra entries added to logs.
  • Hide the "Create Directory" button in the Web Client if the logged-in user does not have any directory creation permissions.
  • Added a cancel button for FTP Voyager JV's logout dialog. This allows the user to go back into FTP Voyager JV.
  • When launching FTP Voyager JV for the first time, the column widths expand evenly to fill the available space.
  • Optimized FTP Voyager JV downloads to use less server-side RAM when a user is logged in.
  • Changed the format for FTP Voyager JV error codes for easier debugging.
  • Added extra support information to FTP Voyager JV's launch page that responds to the Apple Java Update 1.6_13 for Macintosh machines. This update can break the automatic startup of the "Java Web Start" application which opens "jnlp" files.
Bug Fixes:
  • Corrected a bug where multi-byte path names would not be interpreted correctly in some cases.
  • Corrected an HTTP bug where a user could bypass the password requirement gaining normal access as granted by the user account.
  • Corrected an HTTP bug where HTTP sessions would not immediately end when Windows Authentication was enabled. The HTTP sessions would eventually timeout, however failed logins should have caused the sessions to close immediately.
  • Corrected an HTTP bug when downloading a file that is actually a Virtual Path where the file name is different than the Virtual Path's file name, Serv-U would provide the actual file name to the browser when downloading instead of the Virtual Path file name.
  • Corrected a bug where using IP Access rules to block access for a user (by setting the user's IP access rules) could cause Serv-U to crash.
  • Corrected a help bug when viewing Japanese Management Console Help the table of contents frame was in English.
  • Corrected a Macintosh Firefox problem where the "Browse" button in the upload dialog would be partially truncated.
  • Corrected an FTP PASV command problem when using PASV port ranges, on some systems Serv-U could rarely run out of PASV listeners.
  • Corrected a problem when upgrading from Serv-U 6.4 or lower, certain configurations would not upgrade to Serv-U 8.0.
  • Corrected mistakes in ReadMe.txt and License.rtf.
  • Corrected a bug where email event messages were not being identified as UTF-8 even though they were encoded as UTF-8.
  • Corrected a bug where certain user events (User Deleted, User Enabled, User Disabled, User Password Changed, User Password Change Failure) would not fire for the user's domain or would fire for the session's domain. Now these events are fired for the domain in which the user is defined.
  • Corrected a bug in the "Do not log IP rule" dialog in the Management Console where the buttons were misaligned.
  • Corrected a bug in the Management Console where dialogs could not be moved when the page was scrolled down.
  • Corrected a bug where viewing a certificate could cause Serv-U crash the next time OpenSSL was used due to the inadvertent closing of the OpenSSL libraries.
  • Corrected a bug in the Management Console where some dynamically loaded dialogs would not allow for text selection in input fields.
  • Corrected a bug in the Management Console where the Login ID was not being URI encoded when editing the user causing editing to fail when non-ASCII characters were used.
  • Corrected a bug when an email event was setup for Server Shutdown, Serv-U would not send the message. Now Serv-U waits for up-to 30 seconds to shutdown if pending email events exist.
  • Corrected a event bug where execution of an external program could fail if a user was logged in as a Windows User that didn't have the proper permissions to execute that file.
  • Corrected an SFTP (via SSH2) bug when the client uses SSH_FXP_OPEN to open a file, and didn't request any access permissions, Serv-U would create a 0-byte file.
  • Corrected an SFTP (via SSH2) bug when the client uses SSH_FXP_OPEN to open a file, requesting both read and write permissions, Serv-U could create a 0-byte file.
  • Corrected an SFTP (via SSH2) bug where Serv-U would always truncate a file when the SSH_FXF_CREAT and SSH_FXF_WRITE flags were specified to open a file. Serv-U now truncates the file only when the SSH_FXF_TRUNC flag is specified.
  • Corrected a database bug; when the search value for the primary table was changed to something other than "LoginID" (for users) or "GroupName" (for user groups), updates to database records could not be performed.
  • Corrected a bug where FTPS transfers could drop the last few packets of data depending on how the client uploads files.
  • Corrected a Web Client bug when uploading a file, the file name was not being encoded in UTF-8 causing Serv-U to store UTF-8 encoded file names incorrectly.
  • Corrected a Web Client bug where the "Home" button would not appear in the "/" directory when the user's home directory was elsewhere in the path, and the user wasn't locked in the home directory.
  • Corrected a bug where users containing a comma in the Login ID could not be modified, deleted, or moved to a different user category.
  • Corrected a bug where users were not being unloaded after being created. Creating many users, in one session, could cause excessive use of memory.
  • Corrected a bug where administering Serv-U using a browser (i.e., remotely) and deleting the remote administrator's user account could cause Serv-U to crash. This operation is now denied.
  • Corrected a directory access bug when a user is locked in the home directory, and the home directory is a drive root, the user could access directories to which permission was not granted.
  • Corrected a Virtual Paths bug where Serv-U versions 6.4 and lower checked visibility of both the virtual path and the physical path, Serv-U 7.0 - 8.0 were not.
  • Corrected a rename bug where the destination file or directory name could contain invalid characters and Serv-U would incorrectly report a successful rename operation.
  • Corrected a bug where an invalid Windows Shortcut could cause Serv-U to fail, leaving the connection in an invalid state where the session would appear to hang. Other connections were not affected.
  • Corrected a tray pop-up menu bug where, on systems running for a very long period of time, the "Themes" menu would appear only as a bar, instead of the submenu.
  • Corrected an installation bug when upgrading from Serv-U 6.4 and lower and using s/key passwords. The conversion would incorrectly set this value for converted user accounts. Introduced in version 8.0.0.7 only.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where a rename of a local file that had its file extension hidden would cause the file to lose its extension.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where a Drag and Drop operation between two remote listings would fail if the user was locked into their home directory.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where the "Multiple Files/Folders Properties" dialog was failing to format numerical values.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where the "Properties" dialog would fail to show the current working directory information if nothing was selected in the listing.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV on *NIX machines where the logout confirmation dialog was too small to show all the text of the dialog.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where Windows Link (LNK) files would fail to upload if the files were dragged and dropped.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where it would try to load a Windows Look and Feel on a Linux OS.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where pressing the [PAGE_UP] and [PAGE_DOWN] keys was causing the listing to scroll one extra row.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV on Macintosh machines where the gradient colors for the Local, Remote, and Transfer tabs would be drawn outside of their boundaries.

  • Corrected an SFTP (via SSH2) bug where the SSH_FXP_FSETSTAT command would fail because the file was already open.
  • Corrected an SFTP (via SSH2) bug where Serv-U would close all open files when an unsupported operation was requested. This caused certain SFTP clients to be unable to upload files to Serv-U.
  • Corrected an SFTP (via SSH2) logging cosmetic error where failed close operations would log the command twice, once with the specified handle, once without.
  • Corrected a user statistics bug where certain values such as "Total Sessions", "Average Session Length", "Longest Session", and "Highest Number of Sessions" was inaccurate.
  • Corrected an event bug where using the "Test" button would fail for email events, from within the Tray's Management Console only, when SMTP settings were not set for the server.
  • Corrected a tray bug where the tray would unnecessarily wait 15 seconds after shutting down the server before exiting.
  • Corrected a tray bug where clicking very quickly could cause the trial expired bubble to appear twice.

  • Corrected a bug where a session's home directory may be incorrectly interpreted when the user is locked in the home directory.
  • Corrected a bug where Serv-U could assume that a remote directory name such as "/temp" was the same as "D:\temp" where the drive letter is the drive upon which Serv-U is installed. This only occurred when the user had full access to the machine and the user account listed drives.
  • Corrected a layout issue where the HTTP login page would improperly position the login button for Finish in Firefox under Windows Vista.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where multiple directory listings would occur when navigating to a parent folder while in Thumbnails mode.
  • Corrected an SFTP (via SSH2) but where Serv-U would not fully resolve Windows shortcuts as specified. Certain SFTP attributes referenced the .LNK file instead of the target, this included the file type, file attributes, and the date and times of the target.

  • Corrected a directory traversal vulnerability where it was possible to create a directory outside of a locked user's home directory. All protocols were affected.
  • Corrected a logging bug where HTTP logouts for a single session would appear twice in the log. Introduced in version 7.4.0.0.
  • Corrected an FTP login bug where passwords starting with a '-' character would not allow logins. This was due to the compatibility with certain older UNIX systems where specifying a '-' character as the first character for a password, would disable multi-line FTP responses (see release below notes for Serv-U 2.4).
  • Corrected an FTP MLST bug where listing a virtual path would return the physical path's file or directory name instead of the virtual path name.
  • Corrected an HTTP upload and download statistic bug where more bytes than the actual number transferred were being tallied; in most cases almost twice as much.
  • Corrected an automatic home directory creation bug, when logging in as a Windows User, where the logged in user doesn't have read and write permission to the parent directory of the user's home directory; Serv-U was unable to create user's home directory automatically.
  • Corrected an SFTP bug where relative paths were not working. The SFTP specification identifies "file names" not starting with the "/" character to be paths relative to the user's home directory.
  • Corrected an SFTP bug when attempting to set the file attribute; failure would cause Serv-U to close any open file and invalidate the client's file handle causing uploads or downloads to fail.
  • Corrected a cosmetic bug where Serv-U would not correctly set the letter case for Windows Shortcuts when Shortcuts are treated as links instead of files (the default setting).
  • Corrected a bug where paths containing wildcard characters "*" and/or "?" could return the first matching file or directory and allow non-wildcard operations to be performed (such as delete, upload, and download).
  • Corrected a bug where performing a wildcard listing in a directory, and a subdirectory matched the wildcard, the subdirectory's content was listed instead of the parent directory using wildcard matching.
  • Corrected a bug where wildcard listings on "\" (the computer's available drives for the logged in user's account) would not work correctly.
  • Corrected a bug when listing with wildcards in directories with virtual paths. When no physical file existed matching the wildcard but a virtual path did Serv-U would not list the virtual path.
  • Corrected a bug when specifying a domain home directory, if the directory path contained a trailing "\" character, Serv-U would not correctly limit the directory size.

Serv-U Version 7.4.0.1

Serv-U 7.4.0.1 was released January 6, 2009. A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

Bug Fixes:
  • Corrected a rename bug where attempting to change the letter case of a path would not work correctly. Introduced in version 7.4.0.0.
  • Corrected an upload bug where uploading an existing file with different letter case the resulting file would use the old file name. Introduced in version 7.4.0.0.

Serv-U Version 7.4.0.0

Serv-U 7.4.0.0 was released January 5, 2009. A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

Features:
  • Added the SFTP client name to the log when identifying the client's requested version number.
  • Allow SFTP SSH_FXP_REALPATH commands to work on "." even when the directory rights don't allow listing the directory. This function returns the full path of the current directory as used by some SFTP clients.
  • Allow SFTP SSH_FXP_REALPATH commands to work on "" (an empty path) as many SFTP servers do. When an empty path is specified, the user's home directory is assumed.
  • Removed the obsolete FTP command "SITE INDEX". This functionality is available through the LIST command and the recurse ("R") parameter. For example "LIST -lR *.txt" lists all text files recursively.
  • Changed the FTP QUIT, HELP, FEAT, AUTH, PBSZ, PROT, HOST, and REIN commands so they can be executed even while the session is required to change the password.
  • Upgraded development environment from Microsoft Developer Studio 2005 to Microsoft Developer Studio 2008.
  • Added support for Opera 9.
  • Added an informational alert dialog to the domain log file path input to clarify to users to include the logs file name in the path.
  • Updated a Russian log string.
  • Updated Swedish strings when starting FTP Voyager JV.
Bug Fixes:
  • Corrected a bug where HTTPS sockets may not process received data when running on multiple core machines where there are more than 2 cores or processors (3 or more).
  • Corrected a Web Client problem where the cursor was not placed in the edit field for rename.
  • Corrected a Web Client bug when using Safari where Safari would download and save files using the server name or IP address instead of the actual file name.
  • Corrected a problem where XCRC would not abort when operating on large files.
  • Corrected a problem where performing XCRC, STOU, DSIZ, AVBL, RNTO (moving a large file to another volume), RMDA (remove directory and contents) operations could cause Serv-U to stop accepting connections and commands when these commands were lengthy.
  • Corrected an FTP PORT bug when using multiple IP addresses on the same subnet, Serv-U might not bind over the correct IP address (interface).
  • Corrected an FTP LIST bug where listing recursively using wildcards would not recurse directories.
  • Corrected an FTP LIST bug where listing recursively when a mask was specified, the mask was shown as part of the subdirectory label.
  • Corrected an FTP HELP bug where nested commands such as "HELP SITE CHMOD" would show only the command information for "HELP SITE".
  • Corrected an FTP HELP bug where "HELP OPTS UTF8" would show only the help information for "HELP OPTS MODE".
  • Corrected an FTP USER bug when a password was expired, but the original password was blank, "500 INTERNAL ERROR" response was returned instead of "233 User logged in, PASSWORD EXPIRED - please change before proceeding.".
  • Corrected an FTP SITE PSWD bug where if either specified password was blank, the command would be interpreted incorrectly.
  • Corrected an FTP THMB bug where specifying an invalid thumbnail type could cause an invalid result code.
  • Corrected an FTP STOR bug with certain clients where uploading many small files over a LAN could cause Serv-U to neglect telling the client a file was uploaded.
  • Corrected an FTP CCC bug when using a fast connection, Serv-U could switch out of SSL mode after the next command comes in causing Serv-U to misinterpret the next command.
  • Corrected a thumbnail creation bug while logged in as a Windows User where the logged in user doesn't have read and write permission to the Windows Temporary directory, Serv-U was unable to create thumbnail images.
  • Corrected an SFTP bug where setting the file attributes for a read-only file was not possible.
  • Corrected an SFTP bug where setting the file size using the SFTP attributes would fail, Serv-U was not returning an error.
  • Corrected an SFTP bug when creating a directory, the attributes parameter was being ignored.
  • Corrected an SFTP bug where certain permissions where not being verified correctly. For example, a writable file could be over written when delete permissions were not enabled for that file.
  • Corrected an SSH bug where the login ID and passwords were not being UTF-8 decrypted.
  • Corrected an SSH bug where client-server key re-exchange would succeed, but Serv-U was unable to decrypt subsequent SSH packets due to Serv-U failing to use the previous SSH Session ID. SSH key re-exchange usually occurs after each gigabyte of data transfer or each hour of connection time.
  • Corrected an SSH bug where disabling all ciphers or MACs could cause Serv-U to crash or leak memory when a client connects.
  • Corrected an internal HTTP file request bug while logged in as a Windows User where the logged in user doesn't have read permission in the installation's HTTP directories, Serv-U was unable to download and use certain files, such as larger image files.
  • Corrected an HTTP download bug, introduced in version 7.3.0.2, where compression was being used when downloading already compressed files.
  • Corrected an HTTP download bug when compression was being used and the result of run-time compression was larger than the original file, a partial file could be downloaded due to the client's use of the "Content-Length" HTTP parameter.
  • Corrected an HTTP logging bug where smaller downloaded files may not be logged after successfully downloaded. This race condition appeared more frequently on multi-core computers.
  • Corrected an HTTPS download bug where IE 7+ could truncate the downloaded file under certain circumstances. The solution involves removing the HTTP parameter "Content-Length" for IE 7+. When not included IE is not able to show the download progress for the file.
  • Corrected a user database bug when enabling or disabling a user account outside of the Serv-U Management Console would not allow logins from the user account until Serv-U was restarted.
  • Corrected an Oracle database bug where Oracle performs case-sensitive searches, however Serv-U uses non-case-sensitive searches.
  • Corrected a bug in the Management Console when entering and saving the Credit value for "Count bytes over all sessions", the value would be retrieved as NaN.
  • Corrected a bug where creating SSL certificate and SSH private key files might fail, when an administrator's home directory is "\" (the entire computer).
  • Corrected a tray balloon tip bug when Serv-U wasn't listening on all IP addresses when users would login Serv-U would show the balloon tip saying Serv-U was on-line.
  • Corrected a log file rotation bug where Serv-U would not properly rotate log files when using monthly or yearly. The rotation would be delayed approximately 24 hours causing 1 day of log information to be placed in the wrong log file.
  • Corrected a logging bug where the proper letter case for paths was not being used in the log.
  • Corrected a problem when using many IP addresses (255 or more) on a single computer, Serv-U would use too much CPU time every 15 seconds causing certain operations to be delayed.
  • Corrected a problem when using many listeners (255 or more), Serv-U would use too much CPU time every 5 seconds.

Serv-U 7.3.0.1 was released October 8, 2008. A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

Features:
  • Added the ability to view and download 3 different sized images on the iPhone/iPod Touch (small, medium, and full-sized).
  • Changed iPhone/iPod Touch keyboard so that it doesn't start automatically with CAPS on for all input fields.
  • Improved "Unable to establish SSL connection" log message when the client simply disconnects during the negotiation phase. This usually indicates that the client has rejected the SSL certificate.
  • Improved the Web Client for the iPhone and iPod Touch by disabling the parent directory buttons when in the user's root directory.
Bug Fixes:
  • Corrected an iPhone/iPod Touch bug where the "Up Directory" button would not work in the home directory if the user wasn't locked in the home directory.
  • Corrected a problem where large HTTP/HTTPS uploads could pause indefinitely. This problem could appear when Serv-U was running on a multi-processor / multiple-core server.
  • Corrected a Web Client bug where keyboard focus was not reset to the file list after a delete confirmation dialog was displayed.
  • Corrected an FTP display bug when specifying a wildcard character such as "*" or "?" as a parameter for a path name, Serv-U would return the first file with the matching name in its response.
  • Corrected an SFTP bug where closing a file handle, and attempting to set the file attributes on a file where permission is denied could cause Serv-U to crash.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where uploading a directory with the same name as the destination would produce an error.
  • Corrected a security bug where specifying a Windows port (such as CON:, LPT1:, PRN:, etc.) when using the STOU command, could cause Serv-U to consume all of the CPU time on a processor. This problem could only occur when write privileges were granted to the specified directory. (Secunia SA32150)
  • Corrected a security bug with rename where moving a file or directory to a location where delete privileges were not granted for an existing file or directory, would cause the file or directory to be moved. (Secunia SA32150)
  • Corrected a security bug with rename where placing the destination in "\" (i.e., "My Computer") would cause the file to moved to the current Windows directory.

 

Serv-U Version 7.3.0.0

Serv-U 7.3.0.0 was released October 1, 2008. A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

Features:
  • Added Web Client support for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

  • Added the ability to use the "Enter" key to save settings in the limits dialog.
  • Added a log message that identifies when a file has been downloaded as a thumbnail instead of just identifying the file as having been downloaded.
  • Added a log message that identifies the start of an upload or download in SFTP. FTP and HTTP both included this log message, but SFTP did not.
  • Added the ability to enable or disable automatically starting of the tray application from the tray's pop-up menu.
  • Added support for the MFMT (Modify Fact: Modification Time), MFCT (Modify Fact: Creation Time), and MFF (Modify Fact: Facts) FTP commands (according to draft-somers-ftp-mfxx-04).
  • Added Management Console support for Google Chrome.
  • Added additional trouble shooting information for the FTP Voyager JV start page when running Safari.
  • Changed the installer to recognize whether or not the tray application is started automatically upon login to Windows. The installer now maintains this setting between installations.
  • Improved reverse DNS handling for servers implementing very large numbers of banned IP addresses, Serv-U now places priority on session reverse DNS requests.
  • Improved background timer handling in the case where a server is so busy the process is CPU starved; in such situations internal timer execution is forced to ensure execution of background processes.
  • Improved several Russian strings.
  • Improved support for certain FTP clients that send extra invalid characters as part of their "ABOR" FTP command.
  • Removed the Serv-U Version number from all HTTP pages except for the Management Console.
  • Removed the HTTP restriction ensuring session requests were coming from the same IP address. This is necessary for clients, such as the iPhone, whose IP address changes very frequently.
  • Updated OpenSSL libraries from 0.9.8h to 0.9.8i.
Bug Fixes:
  • Corrected a Windows Authentication (NT-SAM/AD) bug where disabling Windows Authentication while a Windows user was logged in using HTTP, could cause Serv-U to crash (GPF).
  • Corrected a Windows Authentication (NT-SAM/AD) bug when logging to a file where the Windows user didn't have write permissions; Serv-U was unable to write to the log file.
  • Corrected an SFTP bug where SSH_FXP_OPENDIR was not returning an error code when the specified directory didn't exist.
  • Corrected an SFTP bug where certain SFTP clients were unable to resume uploads because they were not requesting append permissions on the file to be written.
  • Corrected an SFTP bug where file transfers were not being recorded to prevent session timeouts.
  • Corrected an SFTP bug where upload transfer limits were not being observed.
  • Corrected an SSH bug where some SFTP clients could cause Serv-U to consume excessive amounts of memory and eventually crash during an upload on a LAN connection.
  • Corrected an SSH bug where the initial protocol identification exchange and key exchange packets (SSH_MSG_KEXINIT) when included in one physical packet from the client, Serv-U would not recognize the key exchange causing the connection to fail.
  • Corrected an SSH bug where the incoming and outgoing sequencer values could go negative causing SFTP clients to fail after transferring a lot of packets. This is a very rare problem, almost impossible to occur, affecting transfers of incredibly large files.
  • Corrected an SSH bug where the server-to-client cipher's block size was being used instead of the client-to-server cipher's block size for incoming SSH data packets.
  • Corrected an SSH bug where the server-to-client MAC length was being used instead of the client-to-server MAC length for incoming SSH data packets.
  • Corrected an SSH bug where some clients would select encryption algorithms that were disabled via the Management Console.
  • Corrected an SSH bug where some clients would select SSH MAC algorithms that were disabled via the Management Console.
  • Corrected an SSH problem where the Solaris 9 client waits for Serv-U to send SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS after the SSH2_MSG_KEXDH_INIT command. Now Serv-U sends SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS immediately after a successful SSH2_MSG_KEXDH_INIT command.
  • Corrected an SSL (FTPS and HTTPS) bug where when closing a socket the SSL connection was not properly shutdown via the SSL protocol.
  • Corrected a Web Client bug in the upload dialog where scroll bars were visible when running FireFox 3 in Windows Vista.
  • Corrected a bug when using Firefox 3, and the selected user's last command was too large for the display, the information would go beyond the group box's boundary.
  • Corrected a group box display issue when using Internet Explorer, under the Encryption tab in the Management Console for the server.
  • Corrected a bug when restricting use to secure connections only; Windows Authentication would allow non-secure logins for users even when secure connections were required via the server, domain, or group.
  • Corrected an HTTP/HTTPS transfer limit bug where domain and server transfer limits were not being applied.
  • Corrected an HTTP/HTTPS session timeout bug, where "Session idle time out" would appear in the log even though there was no actual timeout that occurred.
  • Corrected an HTTP/HTTPS upload bug where uploading very small files could cause the Web Client to appear hung, especially on faster multi-core computers.
  • Corrected an HTTP/HTTPS upload bug where uploading very large files on fast networks could cause Serv-U to use large amounts of memory and fail during the upload.
  • Corrected an HTTP/HTTPS logging bug where the "HTTP_ERROR: unable to store..." message would contain garbage information for the file name.
  • Corrected a bug where automatic home directory creation would not work, in some cases, when macros were being used as part of the home directory.
  • Corrected a Russian translation error.
  • Corrected a problem where the Russian Navigation menu would wrap to another line.
  • Corrected a MySQL bug when using older MySQL versions lower than 5.0, Serv-U would not escape backslash characters. MySQL 5.0 and greater provide a method for disabling the need for escaping certain characters.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where certain files would not open on Windows Operating Systems.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where overwriting directories would request a confirmation from the user.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where double-clicking on the remote toolbar's back or forward button would cause an invalid state to occur.
  • Corrected a User Creation Wizard bug where the incorrect error message could be displayed when the password didn't meet length and complexity limits.
  • Corrected a bug where password length and complexity was being checked for the anonymous user account. Anonymous user accounts don't normally have associated passwords so verification during account creation or modification is not required.
  • Corrected a Management Console bug where a certain sequence of selections could cause buttons to appear incorrectly in the user dialog.
  • Corrected an installer upgrade bug, when upgrading from Serv-U 6.1.0.5 and lower; installation as a system service would not work correctly.
  • Corrected an installer upgrade bug, when upgrading from Serv-U 6.1.0.5 and lower; the installer was unable to shutdown Serv-U.
  • Corrected an installer bug when reinstalling from a service to not as a service, the service settings were not being removed during the second installation.
  • Corrected an inconsistency in the FTP LIST command, where Serv-U versions < 7.0 would perform an empty listing, but Serv-U 7 would return a 550 error code.
  • Corrected an MLST/MLSD bug where UTF-8 paths might not be interpreted correctly.
  • Corrected an MDTM bug where specifying the time zone offset to set the date and time of a file would fail.
  • Corrected a bug while using compression via FTP, Serv-U could stop accepting uploaded data if conditions were right.
  • Corrected a bug where changing to a directory that should be hidden was allowed. User permissions for reading and writing were working correctly, however clients could change to the directory, which could allow the client to identify the existence of a directory.
  • Corrected a group database bug where changing the group name would cause a new group to be created in the database with the changed group name.
  • Corrected a group database bug where changing the group name would not update users using the group.
  • Corrected a cosmetic bug where updating a group name by only changing the letter case Serv-U would not update the group name for users in the group.
  • Corrected a cosmetic bug where changing the letter case of user information that is displayed in the administrator's user list, the list wouldn't update.

  • Corrected an SSH bug where login using accounts without passwords was not working.
  • Corrected an SFTP (SSH) bug where directory creation and logging SFTP commands could cause Serv-U to show invalid information for the directory name or crash Serv-U.
  • Corrected a Web Client bug in the browse dialog where the "@" character was not decoded properly when selecting a directory path.
  • Corrected a Web Client bug where only using wildcard masks to specify upload directory permissions (such as *.txt, *.jpg, etc.), the Upload button would not be available to users.
  • Corrected a Web Client bug where directories containing more than 100 files or directories would not fully appear in the list when the size of the browser window was very tall.
  • Corrected a Web Client bug where the wrong object was being loaded for the Media Player in Safari.
  • Corrected a bug where logging to a file with an invalid path would cause user login failure.
  • Corrected a bug with automatically disabled user accounts, where editing an automatically disabled account was not allowed, and a message appeared saying the user already existed.
  • Corrected a bug where automatically disabled users could cause memory consumption to grow more than what was required.
  • Corrected a bug when uploading via HTTP using the Web Client or FTP Voyager JV and an upload was unable to start (such as when permission is denied), Serv-U would report the wrong error code back to the client.
  • Corrected a duplicate write operation (to disk or database) when user passwords were changed by clients.
  • Corrected a problem when using multiple copies of Serv-U, sharing the same database, user information could get lost.
  • Corrected a Microsoft Access database bug when attempting to retrieve column information from the database would cause an error causing Serv-U not to recognize users stored in a Microsoft Access database. Other supported databases were not affected.

 

Serv-U Version 7.2.0.0

Serv-U 7.2.0.0 was released July 16, 2008. A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

Features:
  • Added support for FTP Voyager JV to run on the Mac OS X operating systems that have Apple's Java SE 6 update installed.
  • Added support for Apple Safari.
  • Added support for Mozilla Firefox 3.
  • Greatly decreased memory usage while maintaining user collections in the Management Console, especially while working with very large numbers of users.
  • Improved database access times, mostly apparent while the Management Console is building the database users list.
  • Added support for Oracle databases. Tested with Oracle XE.
  • Added the ability to set a maximum disk space size for a domain, configurable only by a system administrator, not a domain administrator. This feature allows hosting companies to limit the amount of disk space used by a single domain.
  • Added the "Venture" theme for the tray icon.
  • Decreased memory usage while upgrading from Serv-U 6.x.
  • Added Russian language installation.
  • Added the ability to manually enter a directory path to go to in the Web Client.
  • Added an upgrade message (when upgrading from Serv-U 6.x) that explains message variable formats have changed to start with "$" instead of "%". Message files must be converted manually.
  • Updated Swedish, Finish, Norwegian, and Danish strings.
  • Improved the Web Client upload error handling. When errors occur during an upload, the Web Client now displays an error message on certain failures such as insufficient disk space and over quota messages.
  • Improved the FTP Voyager JV upload error handling. When errors occur during an upload, the Web Client now displays an error message on certain failures such as insufficient disk space and over quota messages.
  • Added the ability to switch domains (using Virtual Hosts) during login for FTP clients that do not user or support the HOST command. The format for the USER command is "USER SP FQDN | username CRLF" where FQDN is the Serv-U virtual host (i.e., "USER host|userid").
  • Added the ability to switch domains (using Virtual Hosts) during login for SSH clients. The user ID can be specified as the virtual host name, followed by "|" then the login ID.
  • After a successful HOST FTP command, Serv-U also returns the sign on message for that domain.
  • Changed the use of the PASV port range to circulate through each of the ports instead of using the first available port. This was done so that some NAT routers work better with Serv-U and to be more consistent with previous versions of Serv-U.
Bug Fixes:
  • Corrected a bug on some systems when running as a service when access to removable drives was enabled only for the console user, not the service account (via HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon, values allocatefloppies, allocatedasd, and allocatecdroms set to 1), Serv-U would prompt for a password when trying to configure Serv-U via the tray application.
  • Corrected a bug where clicking the next button in the Media Player dialog when the last media file is selected would cause an error.
  • Corrected a bug in the Tray's Theme Editor where the "Running" and "Listening Error" states were reversed.
  • Corrected a bug in Serv-U's Group support where Serv-U was not ignoring the letter case of a group name, so when using database configurations from Serv-U 6.4 and lower, Serv-U would not recognize matching groups. In some cases this could lead to excessive use of memory. Servers not configured by previous versions data set are not affected.
  • Corrected a bug where user collections were letter case sensitive by name.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where the application would become unresponsive when attempting to open certain local file types.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where date/time formats for different regions would cause FTP Voyager JV to become unresponsive at startup.

  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where the formatted text in the transfer table's "Name" column was including directories for the number of files in the transfer group.
  • Corrected a bug where window load events in the web browser were not being handled correctly. FTP Voyager JV would not automatically load due to this bug.
  • Corrected a bug where backgrounds were being shown on images in the web page for starting FTP Voyager JV, when running Internet Explorer 6.
  • Corrected a bug where the horizontal scroll bar would be shown in certain grids due to a sizing problem with grid columns.

  • Corrected a bug where the "Always allow login" input check box in domain groups was not being saved correctly.
  • Corrected a bug where using Upload/Download Ratios could cause Serv-U to crash (GPF) when a user logs off.
  • Corrected an HTTP quota bug where quotas were being ignored, and bytes would be counted double.
  • Corrected a quota bug where the current quota bytes could go negative.
  • Corrected a quota bug where overwriting existing files from the first position in the file (i.e., not resuming), would not restore credit to the quota.
  • Corrected a quota bug where bytes uploaded were being recorded even when a quota was not in place.
  • Corrected a bug where transparent PNG images on the login page were not rendering correctly when using IE 6.
  • Corrected a Management Console bug where the rows in certain tables would not be displayed.
  • Corrected a bug where changing the listener to a different type, but keeping it on the same port, would cause Serv-U to think it wasn't listening correctly, showing warning icons in the listener list and on the tray. This was a rare user configuration bug, and only occurs due to user action.
  • Corrected a bug where Serv-U would attempt to recreate listening sockets when it didn't need to. This didn't affect Serv-U's performance, but this timed operation did use unnecessary CPU cycles.
  • Corrected a problem where the floppy drive could be accessed when starting the tray's Management Console.
  • Corrected a problem in the Management Console where images in the alert dialog would be broken if the connection with Serv-U was lost.
  • Corrected a bug when using a Domain or Server level FTP message file containing a blank line, Serv-U could crash (GPF).
  • Corrected a bug where setting a directory access rule maximum size for %HOME% or a directory containing %USER% would be ignored.
  • Corrected a bug where setting a directory access rule for a directory without the Inherit permission, would cause listings using specific file names or wildcard file names to fail with a "Permission Denied" error.
  • Corrected a wildcard permission problem where specifying wildcard access prior to other access, the wildcard access may not work as it did in previous versions.
  • Corrected a permissions bug when resuming an upload. Serv-U was requiring delete permissions when append permissions were required for the resume. Delete permissions are only required when resuming anywhere other than at the end of the file.
  • Corrected a bug where $DFree was returning the free disk space in KB instead of MB, as documented.
  • Corrected a bug where message files using $IP could incorrectly assume an IP address returned by $IP (or other $ variable starting with a 3 digit number) was part of the FTP response code.
  • Corrected a help documentation error where "$ServerDownloadAvgKBs" was documented, where it should have read "$ServerDownloadAvgKBps".
  • Corrected a help documentation error that included incorrect information about disabling SSLv2 support.
  • Corrected a bug where $UNonAnonAll could return a huge number (18,446,744,073,709,551,615 [0xFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF]).
  • Corrected a bug where $U24H would return large numbers when HTTP connections also occurred.
  • Corrected a bug where the bubble tip on the console page for domain administrators would not be shown.
  • Corrected a bug where users just added to Serv-U would be required to change the password immediately instead of the specified number of days.
  • Corrected a bug where Serv-U was not allowing "level 1: CA certificate" (the second level) and higher Certificate Authorities to be verified with clients.
  • Corrected a bug where certain path fields could not be cleared, such as the Log File Path field for a domain.
  • Corrected a database bug where numeric login IDs were being incorrectly selected from the database, due to missing quotation marks in the SQL search string. Databases were considering login ID "1" to be the same as "01".
  • Corrected a database bug where custom column mappings were not working.

 

Serv-U Version 7.1.0.2

  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV's remote panel where attempting to get thumbnails when there weren't any to retrieve would cause serious errors and unexpected results.
  • Corrected a bug where Serv-U wasn't following individual file mask directory access WRITE rules when uploading when LIST for the mask was also disabled. For example, disabling all permissions of "*.exe" using directory access rules, Serv-U would still allow uploading of any .EXE file if the proper parent permissions were set.
  • Corrected a problem where directories using the "[" character would not list correctly due to *NIX wildcard comparison support. Support for character set filtering has been removed from Serv-U.
  • Corrected a bug where moving users to a different user collection would lock up the Management Console (not Serv-U itself) and the move would fail.
  • Corrected a bug where using the enter key to move to the next section in the User Wizard dialog would fail to put focus in the next input field.
  • Corrected a bug where changing a user's password type would lock up the Management Console and the dialog could not be closed.

Serv-U Version 7.1.0.0

Serv-U 7.1.0.0 was released May 19, 2008. A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

Features:
  • Improved the speed of directory listings in Web Client and browse dialog by 65%.
  • Greatly improved the speed at which listings of large amounts of data are displayed, especially large User collections.

  • Added the ability to play all audio files continually from within the Web Client.
  • Added UTF-8 file name and path support to FTP. Serv-U supports the "OPTS UTF8 ON|OFF" command to enable or disable UTF-8. By default UTF-8 is enabled for the FTP protocol (RFC 2640), but can be disabled if desired.
  • Added support for CSID (Client / Server Identification Exchange) to identify the client to the server, and the response identifies the server to the client. The information exchanged includes the name and version number of the client and server, and information about the server including the operating system, file system letter case sensitivity, operating system version number, and directory separator. This command obsoletes the CLNT command.
  • Added the "SITE HELP" and "SITE HELP cmnd" command to support clients, such as Internet Explorer, that make this request.
  • Added a new configuration option for NLST, where NLST can be configured to list empty directories instead of returning "550 No file found.", which is more meaningful to FTP clients than returning an error code.
  • Added new tags for FTP and HTTP (welcome message) string replacement. The new tags are $ServerName, $OS, and $OSVer.
  • Added new tags to the System Variables section of the Help documentation under Additional Reference. The new tags are $ServerName, $OS, and $OSVer.
  • Added client identification to the list of active connections for SSH connections.
  • Added the ability to disable the server identification for SSH for the entire server or for individual domains.
  • Added the ability to disable the use of Windows User (Active Directory / Windows Login) home directory in favor of the group home directory.
  • Improved the use of the SSH local "Window Size" to improve SFTP performance, especially for uploads.
  • Changed the default NLST operation to list empty directories instead of returning an error code; "550 No file found.". Upgrades from Serv-U 6.4 and earlier will still return the error code unless changed manually.
  • Changed the default open file mode for downloads to "Full Access" like in previous versions of Serv-U.
  • Changed the installer to convert Serv-U 6.4 and previous to also keep the open file mode for download.
  • Changed Virtual Paths' physical path to allow the use of %HOME% and %USER% in the physical path in addition to in the virtual path fields.
  • Changed the XCRC FTP command to accept parameters even when the file name isn't wrapped with quotation marks.
  • When Windows shortcut files (.LNK files) are encountered, and the target no longer exists or cannot be found, Serv-U treats the shortcut like any other file.
  • Updated Swedish and Japanese tray strings.
  • Removed the "Windows Authentication" tab from the server global user settings, as it was non-functional. Windows authentication may be enabled only on a domain-by-domain basis.
  • Slide Show mode for the Web Client now navigates images according to the current sorting arrangement.
  • Increased the size of the Address column in the IP access rules list.
  • Added the removal of files that are not found when performing a delete, copy, or rename operation in FTP Voyager JV.
  • Added better status information to the delete and copy dialogs of FTP Voyager JV. It now shows the files inside a directory that is currently being processed.
  • Improved responsiveness of user interaction by reducing the load on the worker threads of FTP Voyager JV.
  • Improved FTP Voyager JV's transfer speed by using buffers with dynamic sizes.
  • Added a password change confirmation dialog to FTP Voyager JV that shows if the operation was successful.
  • Appended an index counter that is shown in FTP Voyager JV's "Name" column of the transfer panel.
  • Decreased the size of the FTP Voyager JV download file by about 85 KB.
  • Removed the email address field from certificate creation dialog as it is not accepted by many certificate authorities.
  • Added the ability to launch FTP Voyager JV from the Web Client.
  • Changed the client selection dialog to use radio buttons instead of a drop down combobox.
  • Added the ability to go back to the Web Client from the FTP Voyager JV launch page.
Bug Fixes:
  • Corrected a problem where long path names would cause the logout button to be hidden in the Web Client.
  • Corrected a problem with the certificate requests generated by Serv-U that caused Certificate Authorities to reject the CSR file as invalid. The CSR files generated by Serv-U have been successfully tested and signed using Thawte and GeoTrust.
  • Corrected a problem on some systems, usually upgrades from previous versions, where the Management Console could prompt for a password even when one isn't defined for administering Serv-U.
  • Corrected a bug where delete privileges were not required to overwrite an existing file. This change is designed to maintain compatibility with previous versions of Serv-U.
  • Corrected a bug where append privileges were not required when resuming transfers with the REST FTP command. This change is designed to maintain compatibility with previous versions of Serv-U.
  • Corrected a bug where the AVBL and DSIZ commands would return an invalid value when attempting to list the non-existent "\" directory (i.e., all drives).
  • Corrected a bug where an FTP active data socket that was supposed to bind on 127.0.0.1 (localhost) Serv-U wouldn't bind to that IP address only.
  • Corrected a bug when attempting to rename a drive, Serv-U would not return with an error code.
  • Corrected a bug where issuing PASV then ALLO instead of immediately trying to transfer a file, the ALLO command (or any non-transfer threaded command) could fail due to a misinterpretation of an internal result code.
  • Corrected a bug in the XCRC FTP command where sending "XCRC file.fid", then "XCRC file.fid 0 100" would generate the same result even though the second command checks only part of the file, not the entire file.
  • Corrected a bug in the log where the log would show a blank user name when a user not requiring a password would login.
  • Corrected an HTTP / HTTPS login bug with Windows Authentication, where the login could appear to hang with the "Loading" dialog.
  • Corrected an HTTP / HTTPS login bug with Windows Authentication, where the welcome message may not be displayed correctly.
  • Corrected improper usage of and punctuation concerning "i.e." and "e.g." in the Management Console and Web Client Help documentation.
  • Corrected a problem where the bubble tip dimensions in the management console were not calculated correctly when long title names were used.
  • Corrected a bug where the update notification dialog / balloon tip would appear every 2 hours if an update was available. This notification now only appears every 3 days, as was originally intended.
  • Corrected an FTP data socket bug where Serv-U was not recognizing a data socket was closed, and would not allow another data socket on that IP address and port. This problem showed when attempting to do server-to-server (FXP) transfers.
  • Corrected a potential GPF (crash) bug when shutting down Serv-U after clients have connected, using FTP, and changed hosts via the HOST command, to the non-primary domain on the IP address.
  • Corrected an SFTP (SSH) bug with the SSH_FXP_FSTAT command where Serv-U would always return SSH_FX_NO_SUCH_FILE.
  • Corrected an SFTP (SSH) bug when setting the file attributes, Serv-U was using the "world" bits instead of the "owner" bits for read, write, and execute.
  • Corrected an SFTP version 3 (SSH) bug where Serv-U was not setting the permissions attribute of the SFTP file attribute to S_IFREG for files, stopping some SFTP clients from being able to download files.
  • Corrected an SFTP (SSH) bug where Serv-U could pause when uploading or downloading files using the *NIX SFTP client.
  • Corrected an SFTP (SSH) bug where Serv-U could crash (GPF) when a session timed out due to inactivity.
  • Corrected an SFTP (SSH) logging bug where an invalid session number (18446744073709551615) would be logged for some transactions.
  • Corrected an SSH problem where Serv-U was not properly handling the SSH remote "Window Size" established by the client.
  • Corrected an SSH protocol problem where Serv-U could crash (GPF) when compression wasn't being used, and the client sent an invalid packet size.
  • Corrected broken links to additional command information in the FTP Settings dialog where the command consisted of multiple words, e.g., SITE HELP.
  • Corrected a bug where Serv-U could crash (GPF) when automatically blocking an IP address for a domain based on invalid login attempts.
  • Corrected an ODBC problem with MS SQL 2005 where the database returns failure when data doesn't exist. Serv-U was attempting to reconnect to the database assuming it had timed out, but it hadn't. Now Serv-U uses a built-in 5 minute timeout before attempting to reconnect to the database upon errors.
  • Corrected an ODBC problem with MS SQL 2005 where the database would return an error regarding "Connection is busy with results for another hstmt".
  • Corrected a Web Client bug where the Slide Show could show a placeholder image for the first image if no file is currently selected or the currently selected file is not an image.
  • Corrected a Web Client upload dialog width problem where German text would cause the upload path field to scroll.
  • Corrected a bug where non-default database column map values displayed HTML bold tags (<b>) surrounding the value when they were edited.
  • Corrected a bug where changes to the maximum directory size of a Directory Access rule were not saved if the Enter key was used to save the changes when the keyboard focus was still in the maximum directory size input field.
  • Corrected a bug where the right-click context menus were not shown for the FTP command and Limits lists for the Server and Domain.
  • Corrected a bug where the limits list did not sort correctly.
  • Removed a redundant confirmation dialog from FTP Voyager JV when deleting server-side read-only files. By default, Serv-U does not allow this operation. Therefore, you will receive a "Permission Denied" failure.
  • Corrected the height of the View Certificate dialog that caused it to be capable of being dragged partially out of view from within the Management Console.
  • Corrected a duplicate FTP response in the Global FTP Properties response codes, for paths that are ports.
  • Shortened a partially obscured German string on the Universal Plug-and-Play device configuration screen displayed during installation.

Bug Fixes:
  • Corrected an SSH bug with the SSH_MSG_CHANNEL_REQUEST command where Serv-U was ignoring the "want reply" parameter and always sending a reply, causing some SSH clients to become confused.
  • Corrected an SSH bug with the SSH_FXP_REALPATH_FMT command where Serv-U was always returning a directory, instead of the real path for a file path.
  • Corrected an SSH bug when trying to list a directory that doesn't exist.
  • Corrected an SSH bug where strings were not being UTF-8 encoded and decoded.
  • Corrected a problem when uploading large files via SSH, an SSH packet could be missed causing the upload to stop.
  • Corrected a problem with the upgrade notice (from versions prior to 7.0) where Asian installations were unreadable due to the use of an incorrect font.
  • Corrected a problem with the log filter where it would not update the log with the filtered content correctly.
  • Corrected a bug where FTP Voyager JV would receive an incomplete directory listing of large directories while operating in SSL mode.
  • Corrected a bug where reseller PNG footer logos were not visible in IE6 or less due to the width and height not being set for the images.
  • Corrected a bug in the "FTP Settings" tab under "Limits & Settings" of the Management Console where check boxes for commands with Advanced Options did not properly initialize their values to reflect the current state of the option.
  • Corrected a bug where the "NLST command also lists directories" check box under the NLST Advanced Options tab was not visible in Internet Explorer and did not function properly in Firefox.
  • Corrected an installation problem when the tray's about dialog was up, and installing, the tray application would not close.
  • Corrected a problem when entering registration IDs with carriage return, line feed, space, and/or tab characters in the ID. When entered into the dialog, Serv-U strips these characters.
  • Corrected a bug in the Management Console where +Ins would do nothing, it should paste like +V.
  • Corrected a bug when uploading with HTTPS through the Web Client where protocol information was being inserted at the head of the file.
  • Corrected a bug where Virtual Path names could be deleted or renamed if the logged in user had the correct permissions for a file or directory that wasn't a virtual path.

  • Corrected a bug when upgrading from previous versions of Serv-U to 7.0 and invalid characters were used for login IDs (/\:*?"<>|) Serv-U would continually show duplicate user accounts in the account list.

 

Serv-U Version 7.0.0.2

Serv-U 7.0.0.2 was released April 9, 2008. A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

Features:
  • Updated Traditional and Simplified Chinese license files.
  • Updated Japanese Management Console strings.
  • Reduced the size of several translated license files.
  • Updated Swedish translation and added as an installation option.
  • Changed the VARCHAR definitions from 512 to 255 for database creation so Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Access can be used as a database for Serv-U.
Bug Fixes:
  • Corrected a bug where Serv-U would allow certain operations in the computer root ("\") instead of on a UNC path or drive path. The computer root is not a physical entity that can be written to or read from. Because of this operations must be denied.
  • Corrected a bug where the copyright text on the Server Details page under the Program Information tab was being wrapped incorrectly.
  • Corrected an ODBC bug where the SQL statement used to add columns to an existing table did not work for MS SQL 2000.
  • Corrected an ODBC bug where if the columns of data were requested "out of order" (according to the column ordinal) MS SQL 2000 would fail.
  • Corrected a problem with old Serv-U Corporate registration IDs.
  • Changed how anonymous FTP login works when anonymous login is not allowed. As with previous versions of Serv-U, when "USER anonymous" is received, it is accepted, until the "PASS xxxx" command is received, when the anonymous login is rejected. This change is due to Windows Explorer and Internet Explorer, rejecting the user after the USER command causes the login to fail, and not prompt for a user ID and password.
  • Corrected a bug where Windows shortcuts to drives would cause a GPF (crash) if Serv-U is treating Windows shortcuts as the target.
  • Changed the default ASCII / BINARY transfer mode (which is only cosmetic in Serv-U) to ASCII as with versions prior to 7.0.0.1.
  • Corrected a problem where the TYPE FTP command was not supporting the "REPRESENTATION TYPE (TYPE)" format as outlined in RFC 765.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where SSL uploads would insert an HTTP protocol header into the uploaded file. This also improves the transfer speed.
  • Corrected a bug in FTP Voyager JV where the Help button of the About dialog was broken.

 

Serv-U Version 7.0.0.1

Serv-U 7.0.0.1 was released April 2, 2008. A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

Features:
  • Added support for the HTTP protocol with a built-in web client.
  • Added support for the SSH protocol.
  • Added support for FTP Voyager JV via the HTTP protocol.
  • Added the THMB command to convert graphical files to thumbnails then download. The THMB command acts exactly like RETR, except prior to transfer the file is reduced to the specified format and maximum size.
  • Added the HOST command which allows the FTP client to change to a specific domain on the server. This allows the FTP server to support multiple domains on a single IP address and port. NOTE: not all FTP clients support this feature. FTP Voyager, for example, does.
  • Added the DSIZ command to return the size of a directory's contents, including sub-directories. A directory may be specified, or if left blank, the current working directory is used.
  • Added the AVBL command to return the number of bytes available in a directory. A directory may be specified, or if left blank, the current working directory is used.
  • Added support to enable and disable specific FTP commands.
  • Added support to change nearly any FTP command responses.
  • Added dynamic HELP information where HELP sends all supported and enabled commands.
  • Added command level HELP. For example "HELP LIST" returns help specifically about the LIST command
  • Added the use of a floating buffer size when reading from files being downloaded by a client. The floating buffer size is based on the transfer rate for the ongoing transfer, making transfers much more efficient.
  • Added directory rename rights setting.
  • Added file rename rights setting.
  • Added the "\" path concept. The "\" path is similar to "My Computer" in Windows Explorer. When a user's home directory is set to "\" a listing of "/" shows the available disk drives. Users who are not logged in their home directory can also take advantage of this feature when the "Allow root ("/") to list drives for unlocked users" is set to true at the user, group, domain or server levels.
  • Changed FEAT to list special commands only when they're enabled.
  • Changed the "OPTS MLST" command to be more forgiving of clients that don't follow the RFC exactly. For example, Serv-U now accepts both "OPTS MLST Type;Size;Modify;Perm;" and "OPTS MLST Type;Size;Modify;Perm"
  • Added the "Perm" feature for MLST and MLSD commands, "Perm" identifies permissions for an item in an MLST/MLSD listing, relative to the connected user.
  • Added the "Win32.dt" feature for MLST and MLSD commands, "Win32.dt" identifies a drive type for disk drive listings, when listing /C:/, /D:/, or /. This feature will not be returned in a directory listing if the item is not a disk drive.
  • Added the "Win32.dl" feature for MLST and MLSD commands, "Win32.dl" identifies a drive label for disk drive listings, when listing /C:/, /D:/, or /. This feature will not be returned in a directory listing if the item is not a disk drive.
  • Added more information to the MLST / MSLD Type fact for "os.UNIX=slink" where Serv-U now also appends ":linked_path" if this information is available to the user.
  • Improved Windows Shortcut resolution to also include shortcuts using relative paths and other combinations of attributes.
  • Added the ability to specify path names with spaces when using the "SITE EXEC" command. If spaces are required, Serv-U parses the file name in quotes.
  • Added the XDEL command, same as DELE.
  • Added RMDA directory as a superset of RMD, allowing the client to delete a directory an all of its files and sub-directories in one command. An error response indicates that the client should refresh its directory listing to determine which files and sub-directories were deleted and which where not.
  • Changed Windows Link support so that when Windows .LNK files are encountered they are treated as the file they reference when listing, for the SIZE command, and transfer operations.
  • Removed the -L LIST and NLST option because it can conflict with other settings.
  • Perform all lengthy commands in a worker thread, freeing up the main thread to service other clients. These operations include LIST, NLST, MLST, MLSD, RMDA, RETR, THMB, RNTO, XCRC, STOR, APPE, STOU, SITE EXEC, and all other lengthy operations.
  • Added the use of multiple CPUs to perform CPU intensive activity.
  • Added transfer totals and transfer rates to the "226 Transfer complete." reply.
  • Added compression totals, statistics, and transfer rates to the compressed "226 Transfer complete." reply.
  • Added the ability to define anti-hammer limits for the domain in addition to at the server.
  • Increased the maximum string length in a message file from 195 characters to 512 characters.
  • Added an option to include server response values to the FTP command processor to include the numeric response code in every line of a multi-line response.
  • Added an option to include server response values for individual message files.
  • Moved message file settings with the appropriate FTP command and to individual command processors.
  • Added the ability to set maximum file sizes for files of certain types, based on the file extension. This feature is implemented through directory access rules where wild cards can be used to identify file access rights.
  • Added maximum directory size restrictions for directories specified in the directory access rules, replacing disk quotas.
  • Added upload and download bandwidth limits for the entire server, each domain, each group, and each user, in addition to session bandwidth limits.
  • Added additional statistics to the STAT command.
  • Improved the ALLO command to check the amount of disk space available to the user, instead of just the hard drive space available. This change takes into consideration quotas and directory size limits.
  • Added the ability to show directory listings in Microsoft IIS FTP Server (-h:IIS) format or DOS (-h:DOS) (command line from Windows 2000 or greater) format with the FTP LIST command.
  • Added -h:"DOS", -h:"IIS", and -h:"UNIX" (default) LIST directives. -h:"DOS" lists files and directories similar to the Windows command line. -h:"IIS" lists files and directories similar to Microsoft's IIS FTP server. -h:"UNIX" lists files and directories similar to BSD UNIX FTP servers. Any other -h"xxx" directive reverts back to "UNIX" style listings. This directive is not letter case sensitive.
  • Changed the operation of IP access rules. If there are no "allow access" rules, "*.*.*.*" is automatically assumed
  • Added the ability to see blocked IP addresses in the IP access rules list when disconnecting a user from the active session list.
  • When uploading and overwriting a file, the original file is renamed to the specified file name.
  • Changed directory listings not to show "." and ".." when the user is locked in the home directory.
  • In directory listings that show "." and ".." normally, these are properly shown whether or not they exist in Windows. This helps to aid both in navigation and in preventing the user from being able to determine if a directory is a root virtual path or not.
  • Added the ability to see passwords in the logs on failure, and with FTP commands.
  • Added categorization for users to help organize users into logical groupings. When users are placed into separate categories the Management Console can perform more efficiently as can Serv-U.
  • Access to virtual paths can now be granted by allowing access to the physical path only. Previous versions required an explicit access setting to the virtual path as well.
Bug Fixes:
  • Corrected an error when exceeding the maximum number of login attempts after being logged in at least once, where Serv-U would return two error replies instead of one.
  • Corrected an error where certain LIST and NLST parameters did not work correctly, for example -I:"*.txt" to ignore certain files.
  • Corrected an error in MLST/MLSD where Serv-U could return file times 1 hour incorrectly when the server is currently running in Daylight Saving Time and the file date and time is not and vice versa.
  • Corrected a bug where "Sub-directory Inherit" was ignored when a full path is specified containing a wildcard string. For example C:\Windows\*.jpg would not include C:\Windows\System32\*.jpg even when the inherit flag was selected.
  • Corrected a bug where recursively listing directories where Virtual Paths referenced the parent directory, would cause Serv-U to crash.
  • Corrected a bug when using "blind" directories, where directory access to directories nested at least two deep have access, it was possible for sessions to never be able to go back to the home directory with the CWD command.
Tray:
  • Added new style menus.
  • Added the ability use different themes.
  • Added Theme Editor.
  • Added balloon tips.
  • Added automatic update checker.
  • Added support links to pop-up menu.
  • Added more statistics to the mouse over tool tips.

  • The current number of users is displayed in the window title.
  • The 'password' checks for anonymous users can be disabled.
  • MS-DOS or Windows programs can be started remotely, using the SITE command EXEC. The EXEC mechanism is also part of the regular access rules.
  • When the server is stopped while there are users logged in, a dialogbox will pop up to confirm the action.
  • Options to the LIST and NLST commands are handled (ie. 'ls -la' like some clients send to the server will produce output).
  • The FTP commands APPE (=append) and STOU (=store unique) are now supported.
  • Data type 'L8' (=local type 8 bits per byte) is now supported.
  • Server is not restarted any more if maximum number of users or time-out values are changed.
  • Anonymous users no longer see hidden files.
  • Drives are checked for accessability before usage, so no longer the 'retry - ignore' dialogboxes.
  • Info on the WinSock socket stack is shown on startup.

Serv-U Version 1.1e

A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

  • Anonymous users no longer see 'hidden' files.
  • Paths are now reported back with a leading '/'. This is to ensure more compatibility with the UNIX format and to make a number of Macintosh FTP clients even happier.
  • The start-up message of Serv-U now reports the socket stack it is running on.
  • When a user/group has a password it is now shown as '***********' in 'setup - users/groups'. Deleting this deletes the password entry for that user/group, ie. it no longer has a password.
  • Spaces are now allowed in user names and passwords.
  • Stopping the server is logged (if logging to file is switched on).
  • Paths are now consistently reported back using '/' instead of '\', to be more in line with the UNIX way of working. Mac FTP clients need this to function properly.
  • A leading '/' or '\' in front of a full pathname is ignored, ie. '/c:/util' is equivalent to 'c:\util'. This allows for UNIX style changes of directory, and enables WWW browsers to change drives.
  • The response to an incorrect anonymous password is changed to be more informative.
  • Displaying a file when the client changes directory is supported.
  • When 'setup - logging - FTP commands' is switched on it no longer shows passwords, 'XXXXX' instead.

  • Very long pathnames are now supported correctly.

 

Serv-U Version 1.1

Serv-U 1.1 was released March 19, 1995. A complete list of changes and upgrades follows:

  • Added lots of logging.
  • The SYST command now replies with the code for a UNIX system. This is because some clients use it to determine the format of directory listings.
  • Time-out values for idle/hung connections are now part of server setup.
  • Drastically increased packet time-out for data transfer, now set at 5 minutes (was 30 seconds). Should be sufficient to allow transfer even on bad connections.
  • Log messages for failed data transfers now have a specification showing why.
  • Changed the HELP response to make WS_FTP work properly with Serv-U.
  • Changed the HELP response to make WS_FTP work properly with Serv-U.
  • Made a work-around for FTP Inc.'s WinSock stack. This stack does not handle SO_LINGER properly on closing a socket, causing 'data channel in use' errors.
  • Changed response messages to file transfers, only the filename is shown now, not the path name.
  • Changed response messages to file transfers, only the filename is shown now, not the path name.
  • Changed the timing of the '150-' response message for PASV transfers. It is now sent after the data connection is established instead of at the time of a transfer command.
  • The listening socket will now automatically be restarted when killed by the socket stack. Some stacks kill listening sockets without reason (Trumpet for one).
  • Username 'FTP' is now synonymous to 'ANONYMOUS'.
  • Clients that connect but never log in are now kicked off the system after 5 minutes.
  • User can now select the try-out method: Fully functional with contacts to my permission server, or, crippled but no permission server contacts.
  • Installed selectable path mechanism for anonymous: Either absolute paths (like a regular user) allowing for drive changes, or paths relative to the home directory (needed for WWW browsers).
  • Changed registration key to work with user/company name instead of IP number. Every time Serv-U is started it tries to read the key from a file KEY.TXT. Registered version displays the key in the "About" box and in reply to the FTP HELP command.
  • Changed the RETR and STOR replies (used for GET and PUT). They are now conform the average UNIX system. This makes WS_FTP more happy, so it shows a progress bar while downloading.
  • Fixed some spelling errors in messages. Fixed logging to screen for time-out messages. Added log message in case limit of no. of users is reached. Added log message when server is (re)started.
  • Fixed bug that caused path for anonymous users with root as home directory to be reported without a '\' at beginning. The same bug caused absolute paths in CWD to be processed incorrectly.
  • Fixed bug that caused random truncation of PUT files in combination with some clients.
  • Fixed bug that allowed users to get 'dir' listings for paths with explicitly no access set to them.
  • Fixed bug causing 'dir' with absolute path name to go wrong.
  • Fixed a bug that made RMD (=remove directory) fail if the directory was on a drive other than the active drive.
  • Fixed bug in very long directory listings (>64K data).
