This is commercial-grade software. TONS of well-done abilities. Awesome FTP and web front end file server. If you don't need all this by all means stop whining and use one of the free or cheap servers. Otherwise, serv-u is undeniably full-featured and great.

It's not free, but you get a lot of bang for your buck!

Also found a chart that does some FTP server price/feature comparison here:

Absurdly expensive for an FTP server. I'll stick with Filezilla Server or Pureftpd.

Also, not sure why betanews lists it as "Shareware $49.95", because the cheapest version available (which is missing most of the features) is four times that at $199.95...and that's without the upgrade and support plans.

It just keeps getting better!! They have added everything I requested in previous versions. Full UNICODE support, SSH public key auth, DLL integration support, user added events for emailing info to the users, and a ton of other stuff. Just check out the release notes list: http://www.serv-u.com/releasenotes/. Not much out there that comes close in terms of features at this price point. Just take a look at Globalscape and IpSwitch prices for their high end server. Not even close.

AWESOME!!!!

Absolutely awesome features, but expensive as hell.

This says more than a million words: the cheapest version costs $200...

They need a reality check, ESPECIALLY with that kind of crappy-ass ftpd.

Bloated. Slow. Overpriced. Lacking features.

Need an ftp to manage remotely - ioFTPD is #1 choice. Need solid ftp server for home use - RaidenFTPD is the best way to go (simply because "gui" [if we can even call it that] of io is so terrible).

io is free an amazingly flexible. Raiden is not, BUT for the price of Serv-U you can get 2 Raiden licences AND Serv-U doesn't even offer half the features Raiden's packing.

Conclusion: stay away.

P.S. $199 for the cheapest version?! Are you people out of your ffin mind? O_o

$500-$111,000 a year for 1 to unlimited servers a year is simply crazy...
The old versions where good... the new ones get more bloated and overpriced each and every version...

I don't like this version anymore...

$500 as the entry-level price for an FTP server with a crap interface and features I can get elsewhere for 1/15th the price? Yeah, uhhh... I'll get back to you on that, RhinoSoft. Did the price of crack cocaine go up or something? They're obviously on something...

One of my huge concerns regarding v7 is still here in v8 : "Default rules cannot be edited or deleted. Create a new limit to override a default one."

At least, the speed is much better than it used to be in v7 : +1
But *that* little annoyance will prevent me from upgrading : -1
Pricing (considering v8 is what v7 should have been in the first place) : -1

It's a good server, really good, but the pricing is just beyond stupid. The true price for the basic Serv-U is now 499.95, NOT the 49.95 shown above. Good going Rhinosoft.

- 4 major upgrades and it's still slow.
- "Default rules cannot be edited or deleted." : I'm keeping v6 until *this* is being revised.

Wow, ooo, yeah, the "new features" are so great, it's worth putting up with aggravating administration. You sure? It's like having a car that has a great stereo, but having to drive with a windshield the size of a postage stamp.

Interface is a bit sluggish, but v7 is a huge step beyond v6. Not even close. Yes, the built-in web client is awesome for sharing with the less-savvy users.
