Serva 2.1.4
A portable and easy-to-use web/ FTP server

Serva is a small (< 2MB) and portable server with support for lots of protocols (http, ftp, tftp, dhcp, dns, sntp, syslog).

The program is fairly easy to set up. To create the simplest FTP server, for instance, you need to choose an appropriate IP address from a list, check the "Anonymous" box, and point Serva to the hard drive folder you'd like to be able to browse. That's essentially it: restart the program and it's ready to go with your new settings.

There is a little more control available, if you need it. You're able to create up to three FTP server user accounts with passwords, for instance. On the HTTP server tab, it's possible to set your preferred HTTP tab and default page, as well as deciding whether you'll allow file browsing. And the DHCP server tab offers support for MAC filtering.

For the most part, though, you're not going to be amazed with Serva's configurability, extensive security features or anything else, because the program is more about ease of use and simplicity rather than the length of its feature list.

Please note, while the program does offer a free, "non-supporter" version, this will display a nag screen every time it launches. To avoid this you may purchase a Supporter build for $29.99.

Version 2.1.4 changes include:
 115N - HTTP Improved file browsing cosmetic
 114F - HTTP Resources bigger than 2Gb under certain conditions
 111F - TFTP RFC-1350 error recovery under certain conditions
 109N - LOG [Ctrl]+C Copy to Clipboard
 108N - LOG [Ctrl]+[Shift]+C Copy all to Clipboard

Verdict:

Serva is a straightforward and simple tool which allows you to set up an ad-hoc temporary web server in seconds, with none of the usual hassles.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
