Fri 04 September 2020 | general release

We are happy to announce the latest release of SFTPPlus, version 4.5.0.

This an important release in which we have introduces support for AS2 file transfer protocol and the ProxyProtocol v2 proxy protocol.

New Features

  • The HTTP/HTTPS file transfer services can now receive files using the Applicability Statement 2 (AS2) protocol. [server-side][http][https]. [#4568][#1059][#1308]
  • You can now configure a transfer to send files to a remote AS2 location. [client-side][http][https][as2] [#221]
  • You can now configure virtual folders directly into the account configuration. In previous version, virtual folders could only be configured at the group level for SFTPPlus embedded accounts. [server-side] [#5460]
  • You can now configure whether an HTTP authentication method will validate or not its URL configuration at startup. [server-side] [#5466]
  • The file transfer service can now handle new connection made using the Proxy Protocol version 2. This is done automatically without any extra configuration. [server-side][ftp][ftps][sftp][scp] [#5467]
  • The data for the emitted events now contain the filename and directory name as separate members for the associated file. [#5469]
  • When creating a matching expression based on the globbing rules, you can now use the exclamation mark to reverse the meaning of the expression. This can be used to define exclusion rules. [#5473]

Defect Fixes

  • An internal error is no longer raised when the FTP server is in debug mode and received commands with non-ASCII values. [server-side][ftp] [#5467]
  • A transfer no longer fails when the source detects 2 paths created at the same time for the same node id. [#5468]
