CompleteFTP is a proprietary FTP server for Windows that supports FTP, FTPS, SFTP, SCP, HTTP and HTTPS.


CompleteFTP began as edtFTPD, which was released in 2004. It was a repackaged version of ProFTPD (Cygwin version) with a graphical front-end running on the .NET Framework.

In November 2007, the name was changed to CompleteFTP (version 0.5) and the back-end was replaced by a proprietary FTP/FTPS engine. The original edtFTPD administrator GUI was retained in this version. This version was also free.

CompleteFTP version 1.0 was released in October 2008 under a commercial license. It introduced a new GUI as well as an improved back-end. CompleteFTP version 2.0 was released in February 2009, with SFTP support. Subsequent releases have added support for SCP, HTTP and HTTPS.

More recently, CompleteFTP version 7.0 introduced support for clustering, while version 8.0 added file synchronization and sharing via a client application called CompleteBox.

In August 2016, CompleteFTP Free Edition, supporting FTP and FTPS, was launched.


The main features of CompleteFTP are:

  • Support for FTP, FTPS, SFTP, SCP, HTTP, and HTTPS
  • SSH terminal support
  • File synchronization and sharing
  • Supported on 32-bit and 64-bit Windows
  • Remote administration
  • Email notifications and triggers for batch files, executables and scripts
  • Support for clustering
  • Custom .NET and Javascript extensions for authentication, events and virtual file-system

  • Support for Windows domain users
  • Support for SSL certificate requests
