THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:

  • EFT Server version 5.2.6 and later
  • EFT v4.x to v7.4.x stores advanced properties in the registry.
  • EFT v8.x stores Advanced Properties in a JSON file.
    • When you upgrade from EFT v7.4.x to EFT v8, the non-default settings that you have defined in the registry will be added to the Advanced Properties file during upgrade. (Default settings are part of the EFT configuration files.)
      Please refer to the EFT help for a spreadsheet of advanced properties for your version of EFT.

DISCUSSION

(This is not recommended, but was a special request from a customer with a unique configuration. This is not a standard part of the LDAP protocol.)

With this registry setting, EFT Server alters the password that is sent to LDAP (during the BIND request) to take on the form:

<client IP>@@<password>.

To activate this feature, create the following key:

On 32-bit systems:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0]

On 64-bit systems:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0]

"PasswordContainsClientIP"=dword:00000001"

1 to enable, 0 or does not exist (default) to disable
