  2. Hi
    Is there a way to make this software working as a service? I bought it and I love it. But SFTP server doesn’t automatically start when my distant server reboot. I have to start a session. Then SFTP is working. For secure reason it is not possible to activate automatic login on the server.

  3. Hi

    Can we start the SFTP server Service in the Background and runs without login in on the Mac Mini Server.

    Regards Otto

  4. hi, is there any way to edit user permissions. For instance giving them read only access?

    • Hi Marcel,

      Currently SFTP Server does not support setting the permission for each user yet.
      But you can change the user’s home directory to read only in Finder (right click -> Get Info -> Share & Permissions).

      Thank you!
