"Good program, but wrong classification on CNET"

The program itself is good. I've nothing to say against it


They claim it's Free for Personal use. But after 30 days, they have deleted my configuration. SFTP is not an option of the free version. It's ok for the 30 days, but after that, they delete your setup.


The different licensing options are detailed on vendors web site: Make sure to read these informations and see if it fit your needs.

Since the vendor do false claim on CNET, i'm not planning to buy. It would cost me 140$US for what i use (SFTP server). I'm going to give a try to some real free projects

High performance and easy to use ftp server software for Windows. Easily handle thousands of simultaneous ftp clients and use very little memory.


Interface is unattractive while being tested, it stopped working several times.

"Very easy to setup and many features"

I had tried other ftp servers, but all of them are either hard to setup, or lack some important features.

This one is very to setup and has all the features I need.
