Rumpus PRO 8.1
Rumpus is an easy-to-use, high-performance FTP, WebDAV, and Web file-transfer server.
Key features include built-in, easy-to-administer user accounts, integrated Web file transfers, file upload notification, extensive security options, blazing performance, and more.... Also included is a remote-server activity monitor, Rumpus FileWatch, and a server-statistics widget, RumpusStat.
Rumpus is not only lightning quick, but it's efficient, too. This means that FTP and Web users will be able to transfer and manage files as fast as the network allows, while leaving plenty of CPU time for other applications running on your server or desktop Mac.
Ease Of Use And Maintenance
Rumpus is, quite simply, the easiest FTP server on the planet to set up and administer. From the setup assistant that fully prepares the server to accept users to the logically designed server management windows, Rumpus makes running an FTP server easy.
Web File Manager
In addition to offering an incredibly high-performance FTP server with unmatched ease of use, Rumpus also includes the Web File Manager. The Web File Manager makes it easy to provide FTP-like capabilities to anyone with a Web browser.
Simple User Management
FTP users are managed directly in Rumpus, not in the system, keeping your FTP users distinct from other server resources. Not only does Rumpus make managing users easy, but it gives you advanced controls like individual drop folders, access restrictions, usage limits, account history, and more. The single-window user management interface in Rumpus is also supplemented by Web-based administration, allowing you to define and manage user accounts from anywhere on the Internet.
A Real Mac Application
Rumpus runs natively on any Mac running OS X 10.5 or later. There's no Java required and the memory footprint and CPU usage is tiny. You will also appreciate the comprehensive help pages and articles, that cover not only how to use Rumpus, but networking issues and the general FTP information you need when you have questions.

What's New In Rumpus 8.1
Improved Server Security
Security has been a major focus for this release of Rumpus, and version 8.1 offers several significant feature updates to keep your server safe, including:
- OpenSSL has been upgraded to the latest build of OpenSSL 1.0.2. The update not only takes advantage of updates in the OpenSSL 1.0.X branch, but incorporates support for TLSv1.1 and TLSv1.2. Administrators can now optionally disable TLSv1.0, TLSv1.1 and SSL/TLS Compression. By default, Rumpus also supports an updated list of ciphers that maximizes compatibility with slightly-out-of-date clients while ensuring the highest practical level of encryption between client and server.
- Users can now be required to change their passwords periodically, and password strength requirements can be enforced by Rumpus. Also, users logging in for the first time can be required to set a new password.
- In the SFTP service, we've added the ability to use private/public key authentication, in addition to username/password authentication. It's a very handy feature for clients that need to regularly transfer files with maximum security. For details, see the article "SFTP" section of the Secure Transfers article in the download package.
- On servers that require all Web users to connect securely (via HTTPS), HTTP Strict Transport Security can now be enabled.
The Web File Manager "Basket"
The Rumpus "Basket" is a useful feature, especially for those who use the Drop Ship function extensively. In essence, the feature allows users create a collection of files and then process the collection in a single action. Users can move from folder to folder within their content area, adding files to the basket as they go. The basket can then be drop shipped in a single drop ship URL, moved to a set destination folder, etc. In the case of a drop shipment, when a basket of files is sent, the recipient accessing the drop ship URL sees each file sent and can view or download the files as needed.
Improved Media Display
Rumpus is increasingly used to display images, video and audio, so Rumpus 8.1 includes a more flexible mechanism for displaying media files in the WFM interface. The Web display of numerous content types have already been optimized, and the new display mechanism will allow Maxum to continually improve the display interface of individual content types in the future.
Additional Helpful Administrative Updates
User accounts with passwords assigned can now also be assigned an SMTP password, allowing Rumpus to send mail natively as individual users. The SMTP port can now be explicitly assigned in Event Notices, making SMTP settings easier to configure. Rumplet can now send files to the Rumpus server via an available HTTP connection, allowing users not on the local network to effectively use the Rumplet application. Rumpus is now a 64-bit application, improving CPU efficiency. WebDAV client compatibility has been improved. Files uploaded from mobile devices (in particular, Safari on iOS) can now be sequentially named so that multiple files can be uploaded from the device at once. An option to roll logs into a zip archive rather than simply copying files helps keep historical archives better organized and consume less disk space.
