Syncplify.me Server! v4.2.0 released

We have just released version 4.2.0 of our Syncplify.me Server! software. This version features the following improvements:

  • Added: support for AWS Load Balancer’s “proxy protocol” (HAProxy protocol v1) to correctly identify the remote client IP address from multi-node load-balanced EC2 instances inside the AWS cloud
  • Added: AutoOptimizeSocket registry setting to automatically optimize the socket’s inbound/outbound buffer sizes and ultimately improve upload/download speed
  • Improved: performance and reliability of the [%USER_HOME%] finder function inside the VFS subsystem
  • Fixed: directory list timer and counter in the FTP protocol handler
  • Fixed: few other minor and rarely occurring issues

Other users (usually Enterprise customers) need to be able to perform complex deployments, integrated into complicated existing environments, they need to be able to configure every single tiny detail of the solution to fit into a much bigger architecture, and all that power often sacrifices simplicity.

When we designed Syncplify.me Server! v4 we have kept all of this in mind, and we have accomplished a design that “adapts” to the user’s needs and desires. In fact, v4 features simplified, wizard-driven configuration for those users who require simplicity, and yet advanced users can plan and execute their deployments down to the tiniest detail by configuring every single aspect, even when the architecture is very complicated.
