    "A reissue"

    I recently made a mistake and gave a lower start then I wanted to . I had said that Rumpus is a good FTP server, The Developer is nice, helpful. The program is $$$$ for what it does. I switched to Pureftp as it is free, seems to do more, SFTP, FTP, SSH. everything. looks nice. Does not have a webfile manager thought. But has about everything else. the one thing Rumpus is missing. is that it does not have a button for creating a Certif. the dev. is very hard on this, as he said it will be coming.. As for now. to create a certif. you have to dive in to the terminal. I guess is you are a nerd or like using the terminal, it is cool. but for 299 it should have a way to create a certif and use it.. PureFTP , one buttone create and used all in one click. awesome. I mean with security being important why would the dev, ewant to make people dive into the terminal. heck it took me 10 sec with Pureftp and it is secure. Rumpus with the instructions on how to make in the terminal. 5 min. copy paste. then he never mentioned what or where to find the certif or which one to use.. So for now I will give 4 stars for this. as I think in a world where security is so important this should be a first concern.. other then that it is a nice program works pretty well. but if you do not need the webfile manager and are not a terminal person and rich, well check out PureFTP, its free and works just as well. I think the price is also a little high, but I bought mine so I feel I can at least say what I THINK. maybe it will also help someone else. all in all a good app,
