VShell 4.5 (Beta 2) Now Available with HTTPS Enterprise Edition and WebDAV Support on Windows, Linux, and Mac

We’re pleased to announce the beta 2 release of VShell 4.5, now available for download.

Please send us your feedback on this new version during the beta release cycle. Send your questions, requests, or bug reports to support@vandyke.com.

Here’s what’s new in VShell 4.5 (Beta 2):

HTTPS support (Linux/Mac, previously Windows only)

Provide an easy-to-use, browser-based file transfer solution for staff, customers, and external partners. End users can connect to VShell Enterprise Edition with HTTPS to upload and download files, and more. No need to train end users on client software and no plugins to install. Customize the user web interface with your company colors and logo.

WebDAV support (All platforms)

VShell Enterprise Edition with HTTPS allows users to connect with a WebDAV client to upload and download files securely. Users can take advantage of WebDAV functionality to edit and collaborate on content.

Folder monitor (Windows)

Detect when new files are created, moved, or copied to a particular folder and initiate actions such as automatic transfer to another SFTP server.

CUCM configuration wizard (Windows)

Use this wizard for easier configuration of VShell to receive file uploads (backups) from Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM).

Limit maximum concurrent connections for users and groups (Linux/Mac, previously Windows only)

Control how many sessions are allowed for users and groups for SSH2, SFTP, and FTPS connections. Specify the maximum number of concurrent connections for all users/groups, or set individual limits for particular users/groups.

Workgroup Edition provides more concurrent connections

The VShell Workgroup Edition now provides 25 concurrent connections (previously 10).
