"Solid Performer-Highly Recommended"
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I run a publishing company and, quite often, our external editors and authors need to download galleys and other large PDF files. Because of the wide range of computer skills among these individuals, having a file transfer application that is easy to use and web based is valuable for my company.
Rumpus installation, set up, and administration was pretty easy. I found a few aspects of the interface a bit counter intuitive, but I was able to resolve any issues without turning to the manual :)
The user's web interface is very easy to understand and use. I have not had a single complaint from a user.
One nice aspect of this application is that it allows me to shut off all FTP services and related ports for FTP on our firewall (yes, I know, SFTP would have been an option, but it would have added additional complexity for a group of external users who were having enough trouble as it was). This is a nice boost to our server's security.
