While SSL/TLS security configuration for the FTPS protocol is entirely self-contained, Syncplify.me Server!’s Web/REST service relies on Windows’ HTTP.SYS subsystem, which is the same subsystem IIS is based on, and therefore its security configuration has to be made at operating system level.
Occasionally we receive reports from users who have forgotten their SuperAdmin password, asking how to reset it. This can be done by utilizing the “Forgot Password” button in the HTTP/REST Configuration Wizard. At times, though, users get back to us saying that there’s no such button.
Normally when you don’t see the “Forgot Password” button it’s because the “Syncplify.me Web/REST Service” wasn’t started. Continue reading
Do you want to check out Syncplify.me Server! v4 without having to download it and install it yourself? We got you covered.
Please consider that this is just a read-only demo account, so you will be able to see the entire web-based Configuration Manager, but you won’t be able to make any changes. A downloadable demo will be released in just few days.
This particular demo runs on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, utilizing a D2-type virtual machine.
During the installation process of Syncplify.me Server! v4.x (or greater) you will be asked the IP address and port to which the new HTTP REST API service should bind. While in most cases 0.0.0.0 (all interfaces) is a safe choice for the IP address, it is important to carefully choose a port.
In order to help you choose, we have prepared a very easy diagram. Just answer the questions on the diagram, and you’ll know which port (not) to use.
This said, in order to limit automatic probes (bots), choosing a non-standard port is probably always the safest way to go.
After a lot of anticipation we are happy to share with our users the very first screenshot (preview) of the new v4 Configuration Manager dashboard. Hope you all will like it! In the picture here below you can see the dashboard for a multi-node (active-active HA) Syncplify.me Server! v4 virtual server.
Getting closer and closer to the early availability of Syncplify.me Server! v4, we think it’s time to share with our customers one of the biggest new features they can expect to find in the upcoming major version: a secure (authenticated) JSON REST web service that allows granular management and configuration of the server, user database, blacklist, and every other aspect.
As many of you have already noticed, as of today our new web site is online, and we have already received several email from our users congratulating for the new design which appears to be clearer and more modern. Thank you for all your support and warm comments!
