FileCOPA FTP/SFTP Server Features

Unlimited Users

The FileCOPA secure FTP Server can be configured with an unlimited number of users.& nbsp;Each user can be given their own private directory, or can share a directory with other users.

Security System

With the FileCOPA FTP Server you can limit the systems that can connect to your server. Block IP addresses and address ranges, allow only specific addresses, limit the number of connections from single IP addresses and limit the number of concurrent connections.  FileCOPA will even keep an eye out for people trying to abuse your system and will block their IP address automatically saving you from stolen resources and protecting your system against unauthorized entry.

PCI Compliant

By disabling the welcome banner (not available in trial), SSLv2 and some of the weaker ciphers you can configure the FileCOPA FTP/SFTP server to be fully PCI Compliant. Unlike most FTP Servers these settings can be made with a few clicks of the mouse in the control panel, no hunting for cryptic registry entries.

Event system

The FileCOPA FTP Server contains a fully configurable event system.  Based on actions that occur during an FTP session (Connection, Disconnection, Login, Download file, etc) events can be configured to occur when that action takes place.  For example, you may wish to send yourself an email each time user X connects, or play a notification sound each time a user downloads a file.  Events can be configured globally and over-ridden for specific users.  You may wish to be notified when user Z uploads a file, but not when user Y uploads a file.


The FileCOPA secure FTP Server has full support for both implicit and explicit SSL (Secure Socket Layer) connections.  A CSR (Certificate Signing Request) generator is included to make getting your certificate even easier.

Secure SFTP

The FileCOPA SFTP Server supports up to V5 of the SSH SFTP protocol. Authenticating users with public keys is also supported.

Selectable Encryption Ciphers

To help with PCI compliance the encryption ciphers within the FileCOPA FTP Server V6 can be individually enabled or disabled. No complex configuration files to edit, just click next to the cipher you need to disable and press Apply.

Bandwidth Limiting

Individual users can be configured for bandwidth throttling.  This limits the speed that they can upload or download to your site.

Passive FTP Support

The FileCOPA Secure FTP Server Software fully supports passive FTP connections.  Passive FTP is of great benefit to customers who are likely to connect to you through a firewall.  Most FTP client software defaults to passive use now making it easier for the user to connect, without an FTP server that supports passive FTP these users are going to be locked out.

Passive FTP Port Range Configuration

While passive FTP is great for FTP client users (the people who are connecting to you), it can be a nightmare for the FTP Server administrator.  Passive FTP usually assumes all incoming TCP ports are open, but this could make your system very insecure.  The FileCOPA secure FTP Server allows you to limit which ports will be used for Passive FTP connections.  Armed with this information you can just open the limited number of ports on your firewall, allowing you to keep your system safe and secure.

Advance Passive FTP Router Configuration

The FileCOPA secure FTP Server can be configured to report your routers IP address for passive FTP transfers.  This allows you to successfully run the FTP Server on a private address behind your router/firewall.  Connecting clients will be supplied your public/router IP address to connect to rather than the private address the server is running on.

Anonymous FTP

When the FileCOPA secure FTP Server is initially installed it will automatically be configured with anonymous user access.  Traditional incoming folders are automatically created and access rights are restricted in the traditional manner.  Files can only be inserted into the incoming folder and files cannot be downloaded from here adding to your security.

Configurable Timeouts

Timeouts can be configured individually for each user allowing you to disconnect inactive users.


A fully blown HTTP server is included with FileCOPA. FileCOPA's http server is fully useable to run a complete web site, it can even support virtual hosts. The server link with PHP to run rich, scripted websites


In addition to the fully blown HTTP server the FileCOPA FTP/FTPS server software also includes an HTTP/HTTPS server that will serve up a web based FTP client. Now your customers can access their account through a web browser without needing to install an FTP client at all.

NT Service

The FileCOPA secure FTP Server runs as a system service.  This adds to your security and ensures that your FTP Server is always running, regardless of which user is logged into your system.

Mode Z Support

FileCOPA supports Mode Z transfers with compatible FTP Clients for compressed uploads and downloads.

Reporting and Statistics System

Statistics available for each user on your system.  These statistics keep track of the number of files uploaded and downloaded, the number of bytes uploaded and downloaded and the average upload and download speeds achieved by the user.

Directory Access Rights
