Using ABE with Secure Server and EFT Server

EFT

THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:

  • Secure FTP Server (All Versions)
  • EFT Server (All Versions)

QUESTION

We are using Access Based Enumeration (ABE) on the Windows Server and have configured Secure FTP Server to use Windows Authentication. How can we ensure that users are seeing only Folders for which they have only Read permission without managing permissions within FTP Server and instead using the permissions assigned through Active Directory Groups?

ANSWER

Secure FTP Server and EFT Server use "impersonation" when logging in to an AD/NTLM site and "piggy back" on top of the operating system permissions/settings for all folder access. If you are using ABE on the Windows Server and have configured Secure FTP Server to use Windows Authentication, point the root folder or VFS path to the UNC Share that has ABE turned on. (Note that ABE operates on network shares, not on NTFS.)
