5.0 out of 5 stars powerful application
This is a fun, useful, powerful and potentially dangerous application. You need to know what you are doing. With a rooted phone and superuser access, if certain servers are started then potentially there is unlimited remote control of your phone. Please be aware of your security when using this app. If you know what you are doing and you're experienced with...

More features than you can shake a stick at, but security worries put me off using it.

This is a fun, useful, powerful and potentially dangerous application. You need to know what you are doing. With a rooted phone and superuser access, if certain servers are started then potentially there is unlimited remote control of your phone. Please be aware of your security when using this app. If you know what you are doing and you're experienced with computing/servers etc then have fun. 5 stars for experienced technical users however stay away if you are a casual user as you are likely to get confused or be unaware of what you are opening yourself up to.

At best, it will be a complete waste of space and battery.

If you do, it may not be either, because some of the default settings are not secure. One cheerful note in the help about setting up a "root with no password" account on one server doesn't exactly inspire confidence, so I'm not about to enable access to anything on my phone from outside the local network. From the age of a US review talking about the still current version, I also wonder if they've kept up to date with security patches. There's also no equivalent of fail2ban protecting any of the servers so if they're open to the wider internet, you will get automated bruteforce attempts to hack them.

But for troubleshooting an existing server or seeing if some software will talk to a particular sort of server, it's quickly proved itself very useful. There are an awful lot of servers this will do, on at least some hardware - it looks like some will only work on ARM-based kit, which is most of it, but not all. (That's a pity, because this would have been good to have on the Joggler running Android...)

So, if you know what you're doing, you'll probably never use the vast majority of what this can do. But you may well find that it is very useful because there will be times when it can do what you want.

This app is well made and does exactly what it says it does. Definitely not one to download for your children - it is quite user specific - you need to know what you are doing with it and what you want out of it... Also you need to be aware of possible security implications of what you are doing. But for someone in the know in this area, it is very good and very useful.

There was only one small problem I came across and this is that the screen freezes whilst using it periodically. This isn't a major problem and doesn't detract from how good the app is.

Recommended.

Great app if you want to turn your android device into a server for numerous reasons. If you're not technical dont bother to use you'll probably have that `why do i need this thought` and give it one star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like having LAMP in your pocket... and more!, 18 Aug 2014

So, as other reviewers have said, this app will mean almost nothing to a lot of android users, but if you are familiar with setting up servers and ever thought "if only my android device could run apache", this is probably as good as it will get.
Present a fully functioning website to a client, running on your phone, through the phones browser, using PHP and MySQL... no other devices required.
Some features require ROOT, such as a fully functioning SMB server on the standard port, but thats due to a restriction in Android.
There are also lots of network tools, send WOL packets, ping, traceroute, command line, Raw socket, port scanner... the list goes on, and everything works as expected.
Word of caution though for those whom my review has not made much sense so far, make sure you know what you are doing, otherwise you may just end up sharing the contents of your phone with the world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Every type of server you can imagine, plus a few more, 7 Oct 2014

This review is from: Servers Ultimate Pro (App)
This app is quite a specialist app and so is mainly aimed at the technical minded users. Contains a very wide selection of different servers and services for almost any need you might have. Fairly easy to configure them but I've only touched the surface of the available services.

The UI could do with a little work but the functionality is all there. You'll need to install some additional (free) companion apps to enable some of the servers - this is very good if you have limited space on your device and only need a subset of the servers offered.

Adds so much utility to the Kindle. I have even started to use this as a reliable method to transfer content to my Kindle.

Great tool for a network pro, TFTP alone is worth the price. Can also run DHCP and DNS
