This step-by-step introductory guide is meant to help our users deploy and configure their SFTP server on Windows for the first time, and make sure that everything works well.
First of all, make sure that no other SFTP server is already running; and since Syncplify.me Server! also provides support for the FTP(S) protocol, please, also make sure no other FTP server is running on the same computer or virtual machine (this is particularly important if you’re installing Syncplify.me Server! onto a Windows Server operating system). A more comprehensive pre-flight check list is available here.
