FTP and Web File Manager Updated

The Rumpus file management software used by TAPACOM network servers has been updated to the latest version (8.0.1). There are a number of changes which should be noted. If you experience any issues or have questions about any service or function please contact me at: http://www.tapacom.net/contact/

Rebuilt Web File Manager

The Web File Manager (WFM) has been rebuilt from the ground up to be easier to use, more flexible, more efficient and include new features. Almost every element of the Web interface is now customizable right from within the  application, for example:

  • File and folder menus are now completely customizable, and the same menus are displayed in both standard and thumbnail directory listing views.
  • Setup wizards allow administrators to quickly define color pallets and basic options, and then individually fine tune the display of dozens of different elements.
  • Action buttons can be displayed in different styles, with more fine tuning controls, and in different positions within the interface.
  • Progress indicators have been simplified and improved, and can now be displayed for file downloads as well as uploads.
  • The data required to deliver Web interface pages is up to 50 percent less than in past versions, while being presented in a more modern, cleaner style.
  • For Drop Ship users, the new Web interface includes a drop ship history, allowing senders to view past shipments and easily copy/paste previous URLs for resending.
  • Users can now move files between folders, without transferring them to and from the server.
  • Video files can be displayed in a branded display interface which includes a “Download Now” option for permanent retrieval of the file.

SFTP Service

Rumpus now supports SFTP clients, in addition to HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, FTPS and WebDAV. User accounts and restrictions are applied just as they are in any other protocol.

New Event Notices

New Event Notice types can save text or XML files when users upload files. Handy for use along with Upload Center forms, this makes it easy to prompt users for information about uploaded files and record meta-data about uploaded files.

Auto-Complete Form Fields

Administrators can now create lists, which can be used in form text fields as prompts for users during data entry. For example, you might create a list of all the e-mail addresses of people in your company, and assign it as an auto-complete list for an “e-mail” Upload Center field.

Auto-complete lists can also be applied to File Request and Drop Ship mail fields, making it easier for local users to address messages sent by Rumpus.
