Hello Experts,

Our company is looking for a good reliable FTP Server software. We currently use a different company to host our FTP needs but are looking to host one internally. Here are a few features we are looking for from the FTP software...

- Windows Based
- Multiple Users
- Multiple Folder/Folder Restrictions
- User Restrictions

Cost of software isn't a issue. Please only list links to software that you have experienced or know people that have experienced and recommend it.

Thanks

WS_FTP is my choice.  http://www.ipswitch.com/products/ws_ftp-server/index.asp

I've used Serv-U, and a few others, for personal servers, but it's hard to beat WS_FTP for business/enterprise use.

If you have Windows based server, have you thought about using Microsoft FTP server included in IIS?

You can also give a try to BulletProof FTP server which is cheap and have a lot of features.

If you are using it for Windows domain users, consider software that links into Active Directory (LDAP).  That way you're freed from account setup and maintenance.  If it's just for the general public, then (said in a high voice) never mind.
