Rumpus 2.0 Offers Industrial Strength FTP Server -- Showing no fear of the built-in Unix FTP server in Mac OS X or Mac OS X Server (at least the former of which is notable for lacking MacBinary support), Maxum Development has released Rumpus 2.0, a significant update to the company's high-performance Macintosh FTP server. Rumpus 2.0 adds a Carbon version for Mac OS X compatibility; user-specific upload notices via email or AppleScript scripts when a file is uploaded; extended folder security privileges, customizable user access limitations for transfer rate, upload/download ratios, and simultaneous connections by a single user; a built-in Web administration server for managing user accounts; and encryption of the user database to enhance security. Upgrades to Rumpus 2.0 are free for those who purchased Rumpus within the last year; otherwise they cost $80 for the Standard version (32 user accounts and 32 simultaneous users) or $130 for the Professional version (256 simultaneous connections and user accounts limited only by available RAM). New copies of Rumpus Standard cost $250; Rumpus Professional retails for $395. [ACE]
