Features

The software features a user manager that allows you to easily create accounts with specific rights that you can define, as well as groups with certain properties and add users into those groups. Furthermore, this software monitors each user and their activities such as uploads, downloads, edits and deletions; tracking files uploaded/downloaded/edited/deleted via their activity stream – sending alerts/statuses directly to an email address of choice if applicable.

Control the amount of disk space each user is permitted to utilize and limit concurrent connections for maximum server efficiency and security. Furthermore, restrict access of certain folders on your server for extra protection against other users who could gain unauthorized entry.

Another key feature is the ability to queue multiple sites for download, saving both time and energy. Windows-style file finding capabilities also allow for easier search capabilities; you can enter keywords or file details that lead directly to its location on a site. Furthermore, files can be paused or resumed while downloading, as well as completely bypassed half-downloaded files if you prefer.

From the setup menu, you can change which port your server listens on. By default it will listen on port 21, but this number can be altered at will to any number over 10,000; many ISPs scan their own users in search of FTP servers.

Installation

BulletProof FTP Server (BPFTP Server) is an efficient Windows FTP server that’s simple to set up and manage, giving you total control over connected users and where their files go from an intuitive graphical user interface. BPFTP can work behind NAT/firewalls as a Windows service or can even run in passive mode to make connecting easier for clients.

The program features a similar graphical user interface as other FTP client software like CuteFTP and WS FTP Pro. There’s a window on the left showing local system directories while on the right there’s one showing remote system directories. Overall, its interface is user-friendly without being too clunky; however it lacks features typically found in more-advanced FTP clients – for instance it doesn’t include site management for saving bookmarks of websites you frequently visit.

This application can also automatically reconnect and disconnect from an FTP server, download files on a schedule and resuming broken downloads, monitor server activity and limit connection attempts, as well as enable file transfers over local area networks (LAN).

Leech mode of this FTP client enables you to download files on sites with limited file downloading limits in one session without going beyond your download credit quota; it automatically disconnects, reconnects and resumes where it left off when needed.

Use FTP to create a list of banned IP addresses, which will prevent certain individuals from accessing your server and using up too much bandwidth. This feature can be especially helpful for home Internet connections with limited speed limitations; alternatively, set your server so it rejects multiple connections from one IP address simultaneously and save yourself the trouble of banning each person individually; it is a very handy tool for anyone using FTP for file sharing!
