zFTPServer is a multi threaded Windows file server. Although being extremely simple to use, there exists an advanced configurations mode which should satisfy every need. Also, extensions are available that makes this into a full-fledged Integration Server with the following highlights: Protocols: FTP, FTPS, SFTP, TFTP, HTTPS Virtual filesystem: Possible to mount any disk drive or directories at anywhere within the home directory of a user or group. This makes it possible to for instance merge several directories so they seem as one. SSL/TLS support: Strong encryption support (up to 256 bits AES). Automatic updates: The server will update automatically when a new version is available (optional). Scripting friendly: The server can be controlled through a standard TCP/IP connection, making scripts very easy to develop (e.g. creating new accounts through php). Remote administration: The server and graphical user interface is separated which easily enables remote maintenance of the server. Being a system service: Built in Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 / 2008 / 2012 / R2 service support. Ultrafast transfer speed: More than 11MByte/sec. average on 100MBit LAN, outperformes most of the 'famous' windows ftp servers. Passive mode host / ip option: Ability to specify a host name for a server with dynamic ip adress to use in passive mode, e.g. myserver.no-ip.com Powerful user and group account management: Users and Groups may join multiple number of groups simultaneously. Support for upload balancing: With the virtual filesystem users' uploads may end up where there is space. Advanced IP-Access management: Access rights with respect to ip adresses or domain names may be specified, granting or denying access from specific locations. Advanced Account expiration: Accounts can be expired after a specific criteria has been fullfilled. Criterias include expiration after a specific date, after a specified number of days/weeks/months has passed, number of downloads performed and more.

Version: zFTPServer Suite 2
zFTPServer is very flexible and loaded with features
Lacks a flexible and controllable security panel where the admin can select allowable ciphers for SSL and SSH2. Also the major bug which is explain in the "Botton-line summary"
I'm facing challenges with my copy of zFTPServer as the auto detect for ASCII and binary still fail to work properly. This causes file corruption when zftpServer does not correctly identify the transfer type. This issue mainly happens with text files however I have also seen it corrupt other types of data files. I encourage everyone try what I have explained and see for yourself. The writer is lazy and does not take people's issues seriously. Updates are slow to come, he says he'll add things that are requested but you'll be waiting aeons for it to be added if it ever is added.

Version: zFTPServer Suite 2
This is a professional 2-component FTP Server: Server itself + remote administretion tool (which controls localhost, when you use it on 1 PC) User management and directory management are very logical and precisely configurable. Logging functions, passive transfer config, access control, SSL.
At the moment I don't miss anything. About the stability. I don't know yet :) Seems to be good though, due tue the 2-component solution.
Support for managing HTTP(S) share/receive/collaborate-links using telnet scripting API (ADDLINK,SETLINK,GETLINK,DELLINK,LISTLINKS).
Support to alter low-level server identifiers for WebDAV.
Web GUI for server administration (defaults to port 8443).
Support for SFTP protocol v.1 and 2.
