Notes From Operator Headgap Systems: Rumpus makes a nice addition to TeleFinder and adds full FTP functionallity to your system. It is not inexpensive, but it doesn't use Users & Groups and Filesharing like the shareware options that cause problems. You can set your users up and link Rumpus right to their individual Web Space Folders. To read more and download a 30 day trial version visit:
