Editors' review

Even in this day of BitTorrent and streaming Web video, FTP retains an important role in transferring files on the Net. Potential downloaders should take care, however--this software is aimed at computer users who want to set up an FTP server inside their networks, not at ordinary FTP users who simply want to transfer files. It does that task well, with a welcoming interface and a smooth installation process. It offers network administrators tight control over an FTP server's operations, with the power to limit connections by IP address, and to limit download speeds and transfer rates. Each individual IP address can be customized, with privileges such as a high or low priority in downloads and uploads. Despite this, we would have liked to see a bit more password-based security to keep out unauthorized users. However, on the whole this is an appealing choice for administrators who want to set up a basic FTP site.

    "It did the job but configuration wasn't intuitive"

    March 17, 2011   |   By d19jordan57

    Version: GuildFTPd 0.999.14

    Pros

    Price is right; it performs as advertised.

    Cons

    Very confusing to configure; is an orphaned product (hasn't seen an update in a long time).

    Summary

    Once you get it configured it performs as an FTP server, but if you don't work with it for a few months you'll likely have to re-learn how to configure it -- configuration simply isn't at all intuitive. I just recently abandoned this orphaned product for something that makes much more sense (to me).
