CrushFTP Professional9.1.0

26 April 2019

Full-featured file server.

Overview

CrushFTP is a powerful file server well ahead of its time. Not only does it handle serving FTP, but it also does SFTP (SSH FTP), FTPS (FTP over SSL), HTTP, HTTPS, WebDAV, and WebDAV SSL. From that list you can see it is serious about security and encryption.

CrushFTP Professional a allows an unlimited number of concurrent connections.

Features
  • The built in fully customizable WebInterface allows you to present a website to customers so they can easily upload files to you, or download files from you. It has support for drag and drop uploading on the website, as well as the ability to upload folders while zipping them on the fly. This saves time and bandwidth. You get real-time feedback on the upload progress, speeds, and estimated time remaining. The WebInterface allows searching for files, thumbnails of images, slideshows, and managing your CrushSync client.
  • Easily setup emails to come to you when a user uploads a file. Did the user upload 50 files? Don't want 50 emails? Not a problem. CrushFTP will build one email with all 50 items listed in it... even if they used a client that logged in with 10 connections to do the uploads!
  • CrushFTP is easy to configure. You can drag and drop folders on a user to grant them access to the folder. The user will then only be able to access that folder. Not like OS X where they can browse around outside their home folder.
  • The plugin support for CrushFTP allows for a whole new set of expandable features. One example allows you to make users by "creating a folder". That's all. You create a folder with a specific name, and a user with that name can then login with access to only that folder. You can't get any easier than that.
  • Scared about giving users access to your computer? You can "preview" what the user will see with the user manager. You can control the access to every file or folder so there is no confusion on what a user can or can't do. Once a user has logged in, you can monitor what they are doing with the CrushFTP interface. See which directories they access, what files they download, and upload.
  • Free training videos showcasing various features of CrushFTP are available on CrushFTP's homepage. Additionally, should you have questions or concerns, you have email access to support who will respond to questions very quickly.

This is a terrific tool! Not only is it stable, well designed, cross-platform, non-resource intense, and fun to use but it's *very well supported*. My organization uses the 7.x professional version of this tool and it's rock solid. It enables a fairly easy entry point to sophisticated tools and provides a tremendous depth in the feature-set.

Absolutely perfect. Very easy to administrate although many features. Extraordinary support. I wish some larger companies with larger support teams knows their products as well as this developer. Support the developer by choosing an enterprise license.

I am the web master/admin for a large university art school. Some of our programs like running their own web sites, so they need FTP access to the server. Like others here, I needed an SFTP server that would restrict those users to only the directories to which I gave them access. I tried doing it the Unix way (Mac OS X Server 10.7) but that was frustration incarnate. I spent two days trying lots of "solutions" that didn't work, then I gave up and started looking for third-party solutions. Of those I was able to get only CrushFTP to work. It is very easy to use and meets my needs and more. Support is excellent too. I highly recommend this to anyone who needs to provide secure FTP services.

I was using CrushFTP5 successfully for a while and had now an issue while updating to version 6. Ben Spink reacted within 1 hour (one...!) and fixed my problem. ....highly recommended product and support.

I'v been using CrushFTP from version 4 for some time now on a Mac Mini server. The software is very intuitive and easy to use. Even if you are new to FTP you'll have a server up and running in no time. The software is very stable, I haven't had a crash yet. The webinterface is revamped since version 5.5 and looks great. The package also comes with excellent support from the maker, Ben Sprink. I've had some issues and he helped me out every time. Ben is very responsive, thuogh most issues were caused by my own inexperience. Thanks for that Ben, 5 stars for you !!!!!

After struggling with the limited features of the built in Snow Leopard server FTP service, I started looking for 3rd party FTP server software. Specifically I was looking for the ability to easily lock particular users into seeing only certain folders and also the ability to use secure protocols such as SFTP and FTPS. Compared to the other options out there, CrushFTP is far and above the best software available for the mac -- especially for the price. Some of the user modification interface is confusing, but once you get the hang of it it works well. As a major bonus, the developer makes himself available to fix bugs and troubleshoot issues should they arise.

I am no expert on FTP clients although I am now using them daily since I started building websites in my spare time. In the last month I have demoed around 30 different clients between Windows and Mac. Out of all of those there were only two applications that were too complicated for me to setup properly, SmartFTP on windows and CrushFTP on mac. I won't hold my own inadequacies against the app but it needs to be made more simple for the average user to get it set up properly, it doesn't have to be hard. More and more people are starting to design their own websites now with the simple webdesign tools like iweb and rapidweaver so there is an increasing market for simple, quick FTP clients and for me anyway, CrushFTP is not one of them. Good luck and keep up the good work.

This was one of the first apps I bought since I switched from windoze to OS X, and I have no regret at all. It's stable, easy, fast, has loads of options, and the developer solves your problems at lightspeed. Well worth its price, and easily one of the best FTP-servers around! (for me at least)

CrushFTP and AlmostVPN are both in the hall of fame: access to their sites is blocked from China, the censors probably don't want users in China to have access to these powerful tools. A medal of honour.

nice application, used pureFTPd before this, always came up with stuff like broken pipelines, and the user configuration for folders was horrible, this app rocks!

FYI, CrushFTP has a "Run in backgorund mode". From the OS X tab, simply select 'Install CrushFTP Daemon'. This feature is only available to registered users though. Just about everything else however is fully functional while unregistered.

It's good, but it needs a "Run in background" feature.

Great FTP server. Have been using it for a couple of months and has all the features you could possibly want and others you may not have considered. Add to that the most flexible email notifications I have come across. I had 1 issue which the developer sorted out for me in a day. What more can I say, cheap at twice the price.

It looks like 3.0b18 just gets better. Frequent updates shows commitment. The IRC bot to announce server stats is really handy. This thing is cool!

This is by far the best FTP server I have used so far. I can't even begin to mention all the features. It has a simplified mode to help the first time user, and a wizard for setting up users. The virtual file system is really virtual. I was able to share my friends files off of his server as if they were on my own. The built in mirroring it can do, and the full GUI remote administration can't be beat. All the files are stored in a standard XML format as well. There literally isn't anything that the author doesn't give you control over. It even has multihoming support for virtual servers.
