Web Transfer Module for WS_FTP Server

Simple, Secure, and Flexible Browser-Based File Transfer

The Web Transfer Module – a Web-based module for WS_FTP Server and WS_FTP Server with SSH – makes it easy for users to transfer files between their computer and WS_FTP Server using a standard Web browser.  With this add-on, employees and external business partners can connect to company networks and securely share files, data, and other critical business information.

Benefits of the WS_FTP Server Web Transfer Module:

  • Security: Administrators define who is authorised to connect to WS FTP Server and are able to grant user access to the appropriate account, files, folders, and virtual folders.  Once an end user has accessed WS FTP Server, their account settings, permissions, and privileges are automatically applied.  Moreover, all files are transferred over the encrypted HTTPS protocol.
  • Control: The Web Transfer Module provides IT departments with centralised administration, management, and deployment.  To implement, server administrators simply enable Web access on the WS FTP Server administration console, and all user settings, such as password rules, file/folder permissions, disk quotas, and more, are all automatically enforced.
  • Ease-of-use: With the Web Transfer Module, users get a simple, familiar file transfer interface to upload or download files, or even to create and delete folders on the remote server – the convenience of the Web with zero-footprint and no software to install on end users’ computers.
  • Compatibility: The Web Transfer Module delivers full compatibility for end users running today’s top operating systems (Windows, Unix, Linux, and Mac) and browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari).  The add-on is currently available in both English and German.
