SurgeFTP provides you with everything you need to create and maintain a FTP server. It comes with highly effective encryption capabilities, as well as other security and performance features. What's more, the software makes it quite easy to manage your server. Its user interface and controls are more simple than those you would find in other similar programs.
The software is available in multiple versions, including a free one. It works on multiple operating systems, including Windows, Linux and Solaris. Downloading its setup file and installing its components should not take more than a minute. Also, there is no need to install any additional tools or services and the hardware requirements are modest.
SurgeFTP comes with a web-based user interface, for which you need to create a username and password. The software's controls are organized on a series of tabs. They allow you to start, stop or restart the server, make global settings, create mirrors, users, reports and much more. Although most settings require some advanced knowledge, the appropriate input fields, check boxes or drop menus are easy to spot.
The program allows you to create one or more user accounts, to grant other people access to the server, with or without limited rights. What's more, SurgeFTP's reporting system lets you see exactly who accessed your server and when and most importantly, if someone has been misusing or wasting your bandwidth.
The software comes with powerful encryption and performance features. It gives you full control over your server and it can provide you with highly detailed reports.
The graphics on the web interface look a bit outdated. Anything you want to do with or to a FTP server can be done on the fly with SurgeFTP.
