Disabling the COMB Command

THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:

  • EFT Server version 5.1.1 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

In EFT Server 5.1.1 and later, you can create/edit a registry location to disable the COMB command to avoid problems with multipart uploads causing multiple file upload events. Restricting transfers to one-part uploads will result in slower transfers, but greatly reduces headaches when you want to process uploaded files, because a file upload success is the entire file. This option is disabled by default (legacy behavior), but setting this DWORD registry value to a non-zero integer causes COMB to be disallowed and not shown in the response to FEAT.
