Maintenance release: Syncplify.me Server! v3.1.17.57

We have just released version 3.1.17.57 of our Syncplify.me Server!

This new maintenance release fixes a bug in the global speed limit configuration. Under certain circumstances, in fact, only user-specific speed limits were enforced, while global speed limits were ignored; now it’s fixed.

As usual you can download the latest version from our web site. Thank you!

Syncplify.me Server! v3.0 will feature speed limits

Just a quick note to let our users know that our dev-team has just finished implementing speed limits in Syncplify.me Server! v3.0. Tested. It runs smoothly.

Speed limits can be configured globally (server-wide, per instance) as well as individually for each user, and the upload and download speed limits can be specified separately.

Here you can see a file transfer with the speed limit disabled. This test was performed on a 100 Mbps LAN, and as you can see the upload speed is 12.95 MB/s (103.6 Mbps, with compression, LAN bandwidth is saturated).

Now, this is the same test, but with speed limit enabled. As you can see, the upload only takes up to the allocated bandwidth and does not saturate the LAN.

Speed limits can be configured globally, per user, or per network. Therefore you can have different speed limits applied to the same user depending on the IP address he/she is connecting from.
