Ok, people seem to be very happy with Rumpus, and… I can only agree with everyone here. I encountered an issue with Rumpus eating too much CPU, and got a patch a fews hours after I sent my message. Which company still does that these days ? So, for this, for the overall stability, the mass of features, and everything else, Rumpus honestly deserves 5 stars and maybe more.

This is a sidebar to this Rumpus, which I agree w/ most, is simply excellent FTP software. I just had a smile when I saw above that there is a link to a still available Mac OS 9 version of Rumpus!! Ah...the nostalgia stream is flowing. /

Unbelievably good Mac FTP Server software. I've been running Rumpus for a few years now, and I can say, hands down, it's the best FTP Server software out there. It is easy to set up, and if you just want the basics, it's simple to get it running and get it usable in less than an hour. If you want more advanced features, it definitely has that, too. I have multiple users, notifications, a completely customized web interface for uploading files. It's great. And what makes Rumpus better than any other software I've used is it's service. Sure, problems come up. But email the company, and you receive a response almost immediately. They are truly committed to customer service. This is not a big box company. They don't have a call center - I believe it's one guy - the owner, operator, and technician. He knows his software like the back of his hand. I'm so pleased. I would recommend this software to anyone needing good, stable FTP Server software!

Cant really add anything more to what has already been said in previous reviews. The builds never crash, developer replys to emails very quickly. The application for Rumpus is (as stated below) only limited by you! There is nothing else like Rumpus that offers such control and monitoring of a FTP server. This is a product that could be deployed any sized business and is well worth the money!

Rumpus is one of those - cant do without - pieces of software. And the Devloper is great with responding to issues in a timely fashion. I also notice that in this newest update, a feature that was requested just a few weeks ago has already been implemented! Drop ship and file request notices now include the guest user's e-mail address (when the "" token is included in the message body).

I have owned Rumpus since late 2007, but started using it in 2008. Rumpus is one of those things that you may have around your home or office and never fully grasp the full value until the light bulb goes off. Well, in the case of Rumpus, once you start using it, the light bulb will continually go off. The use cases for this application are only limited by your creativity and imagination. If you are a business of any size, the price is truly “a drop in the bucket”. The developer is simply outstanding, and the product is pure gold. It is so solid, that I never hesitate to install a beta. If you are a small business or consumer and are paying for MobileMe, Dropbox, or any other on-line file syncing/storage solution, Rumpus deserves your consideration. Yeah, I seen some posts where users whine about the cost. I paid for it, and continue to pay for every paid upgrade because it is absolutely worth it! Of the over 150 paid applications on my HD, Rumpus is at the top of the list to keep current. The only thing that I can say would be a slight barrier for the average user, would be that some technical knowledge and a little patience is required in order to set it up. The reason for this is not that the product is overly complicated (it isn’t), but rather that some knowledge of server provisioning is needed in order to get it working. For example, if you do not have a static IP address, and some understanding of DNS settings, you should allow for a bit of time to get things working. Other than that, it is easy to administer once you have it up and running. If you are unfamiliar with basic networking and are afraid to learn, then you should consider hiring someone who can set it up for you. The most amazing thing about Rumpus is the developer - 7X24 around-the-clock support!

I'm running version 6.1.3, Maxum is asking $149 to upgrade to version 6.2 - a less than one point revision. Makes no sense.

Have Rumpus running for a while now on an old g4 450 mhz. Our FTP-provider was not helping us fast enough so we took matters in our own hands. Great software, the ability of the HTTP server to help non techie people to upload and download a file is very nice and to the point. Installation was easy if you know something about port fowards. All the extras are great and are explained very well...

We have Rumpus deployed to over a dozen high profile companies. This is good stuff. It's difficult to find an issue - and if one were found, it would be fixed very quickly. Easy to set up, easy to manage, easy to support. This is great stuff. Believe all he 5-star reviews. Don Montalvo, NYC

Great FTP software, smooth and easy configuration yet expandable enough to meet most small to medium sized setups. Price is very reasonable, especially if you count in the excellent support. Knowledgeable, fast and committed to help you achieve the best from this product. Highly recommended, mostly because of its user-friedliness to both users and admins.

Absolutely amazing program that's very easy to use. Customer support is top-notch too! They're fast to respond and will spend as much time as it takes to get your problem solved...not that you'll encounter many problems anyway with this program!!!

Agree with most reviews here. This is a TOP NOTCH PRODUCT. If you want a Macintosh FTP/HTTP webupload solution that is easy to admin, nice interface, and solid feature-set...this is it. (well thought out interface, it just makes sense...) With the web interface...novices can transfer files with ease, and pros can always use the FTP client of their choosing... Great response time from the developer. Download and try....you'd be hard pressed not to be impressed !!!

Having used some free, and other paid FTP solutions, I found the Rumpus demo and decided to "give it a try". Man, am I ever glad I did! I've precious little time to fiddle with configurations and Rumpus allowed me to get to work with less downtime (read...money!) and frustration (i.e. grey hairs). Rumpus installs quickly, cleanly, and you can install it on a remote machine on the LAN etc. to manage most of your admin tasks. The interface is clear, logical, and consistent as far as any FTP server is concerned. Group folders, where you can assign users their particular access privileges, is a nice bonus. The Web management interface is a big plus for end users who haven't a clue about FTP clients etc. (Like you've never run across these people before!) This makes the FTP client/support issue a moot point. Now I can send a link to people and point them via browser and not have to explain for the millionth time what FTP is. Saves everyone the frustration and I don't have to bear multi megabyte files choking my email system. While its certainly not "cheap" I do believe the old addage that you "get what you paid for" holds true. If I paid myself for the time spent diddling with other solutions I more than paid for this several times over. Email questions are responded to in a timely and courteous manner and that says a lot to me. Kudos!

I've just downloaded and installed the software on a clean OS X build - eMac G4, and I have the following comments 1) Remarkable customer service and technical support 2) Quick setup for many users with excellent granularity in security / access rights due to the use of folder sets, which are equivalent to user groups 3) The cost was 200 for the NGO with a staff of 15 - which is excellent if you consider how much time it saves compared to implementing the OS X web server as an application server and database - (which would require a lot of customization and coding knowledge - resulting in a more difficulty to maintain system) 4) If you are a computer programmer hobbyist type you are probably going to prefer Linux because it is free (fully communist) 5) If you want to get things up and running quickly so that a small team can easily exchange data over the Internet quickly and easily using basic password security, this software will save you at least five times the price in man hours - more like ten times. 6) If you think this software is overpriced, you are either completely broke, or completely out of touch with how much time it would take to customize a similar system with a web interface and security etc. 7) Thanks for offering the software Maxum - it is great value - don't be discouraged it is apparent that it is not the people you want to reach as customers who are commenting on the software…
