AFD is a program to automatically distribute files either locally or to remote hosts. The files are distributed by using FTP or SMTP, and can be sent in parallel and with priority. It provides a GUI to monitor and control the distribution and extensive logging of all activities.
Automize is a task scheduler and automation software that can automate a variety of tasks, including FTP transfers, FTP monitoring, Web downloads, Web site monitoring, email checking and sending, Telnet, ping, database SQL, advanced zip, unzip, copy, synchronize folders, and directory and file monitoring. In addition, the chaining feature can run tasks in sequence or conditionally depending on exit codes. Additional features include email notifications on task failure, FTP browsing, ZIP file viewer, extensive logging, remote task control and more. It supports dynamic variables to achieve advanced automation tasks. Email notification profiles based on exit code can be set for tasks. Schedules can be synchronized to allow or prvent overlapping schedules. Dynamic variables allow for advanced automation solutions. A number of command line utilities are available to remotely and programatically control tasks and the scheduler.
Beeweeb Internet File Server Workgroup for Windows is a secure and fast alternative to complex and expensive VPN solutions. It enables users connecting from the Internet to access, backup, and share files stored on any file server, just as you would do within a LAN. The BWB protocol includes SSL encryption and allows direct access to files, avoiding time-consuming downloading and uploading procedures. It is easy to install and configure. Users log on to the server by means of the Beeweeb's thin free client (Beeweeb Mapper) with just an address (i.e. username@servername) and a password. It is scalable to serve up to thousands of users, and it is a perfect solution for ISPs and hosting providers who wish to offer innovative online storage, backup, and file-sharing services.
BetaFTPD is a single-threaded FTP daemon. The single-threadedness makes it faster than most other FTP daemons (contrary to common belief), and makes it extremely light on memory. Although it lacks a few functions (which you probably won't miss), the current version is very small and has a decent amount of functionality. BetaFTPD is built on the concept of heavy code reuse, which should hopefully make it easier for other programmers to contribute.
CyberFusion is a system that provides secure file transfer across a LAN, a WAN, and the Internet. It offers encryption and security, reliability and guaranteed delivery, management and automation, audit and control. It offers cost-saving migration from competitor products such as Connect:Direct which is supported with useful tools. It may be used as part of a VPN, ERP, EAI, or ETL software solution for secure file transfers as well as in disaster recovery, data archive, and backup and restore operations.
The file check daemon monitors files according to rules defined in configuration files. When a file is considered stable (due to its age, presence of a flag file, etc.) then it gets copied to a new location. Rotating backups of the destination file can be made and owner, group and permissions can be specified for the destination. Some examples of where this utility has been found to be useful are: Moving files out of an incoming FTP directory in a timely manner. Moving files uploaded to a web server into directories with different user/group. This lets the administrator run the web server as a non-root user and accept uploads using web server based authentication and then move the files to a more secure area after the transfer. The details of how to determine whether a file is stable and what to do with it once it is are defined in a "Filespec" configuration file. There is a separate filespec for each file that will be monitored which means that each file can have unique behavior associated with it.
Muddleftpd is an FTP server designed to overcome the need for working as root without limiting the access protection and safety of a regular FTP server. It can operate as a replacement for wu-ftpd, or it can operate under a single UID, running without any knowledge of the system password file. Anonymous access is available, and you can create as many guest accounts as you like with the same or different properties.
