An Internet file server software solution, Rumpus makes it easier for you to move data securely, allowing you to send files to clients and other people outside of your network. It also allows outsiders to directly but securely upload their files to your network.
Easy installation: Rumpus' wizard gives you all the details you need and guides you through the installation process. You will be required to create a user account and decide whether to enable read-only anonymous access.
Effortless user account administration: Not only are the options on the User Accounts and Web File Manager screens easy to understand, but you also have comprehensive controls over user accounts. You can decide whether or not users are allowed to create or delete folders, overwrite files, or view directory listings. Additionally, you can configure notifications for uploads and downloads.
Customizable views and thumbnail views: The online user interface that appears when loading the 192.168.1.102 address can be customized with a variety of colors and panel arrangements. Moreover, the application supports thumbnail views, which is very convenient when dealing with photos and videos.
Remote administration: You can manage a remote server without the need for other remote control applications.
Quite pricey: At $269, this file server application isn't cheap. You can find free or less expensive alternatives, though they may not be as feature-rich.
Easy to install and administer, Rumpus proves to be a reliable file server software, made only better by its customizable client screens. That said, the price prevents it from being a viable choice for most average users. This app is only for businesses and professional users.
