    We purchased this for our company about 6 months ago and it has been great. The auto-blocking IPs is a great feature.

    We were able to import our existing users from a different ftp server into this through a csv file.

    Overall it is a good product and would recommend this.

    One of the best FTP servers available, but the price is way too high IMO ($80 for the personal edition).

    Been using Cerberus for years. Awesome FTP server and they've added some really great features in 3.0.

    I've used a few different FTP servers and have generally been disappointed with usability and reliability. I've been using Cerberus FTP Server for a few months now and have found it to be very fast, reliable, and light on resources. It has support for newer FTP commands and the virtual directory system is extremely simple to set for a user. It is a great FTP server.

    Serv-U 6 allowed the same kind of flexibility with virtual drives that the reviewer below is talking about. I hate Serv-U 7 too much to know if it still does. I was unimpressed with this FTP server, free for personal use or otherwise.
