QUESTION

Can I customize scClient?

ANSWER

The EFT administrator can customize the scClient interface graphics separately for each Site on which it is available. The customizable files include:

  • app.ico - This is the small icon that appears in the corner of the title bar. 

  • login-top-image.bmp - This is the Globalscape graphic at the top of the login page.

To customize scClient

The directory path listed below is the default EFT configuration path, \ProgramData\Globalscape\EFT Server Enterprise. Your EFT path may be different. If you are using HA (active-active), then the scClient folder will be in the shared configuration path, not the default. e.g., \\Shared Config Path\ScClient

  1. Use the existing graphics as a "template" to create your own. (That is, make them the same size.)

  2. Create a folder in \ProgramData\Globalscape\EFT Server Enterprise\scClient\ called scClient_sitename. That is, if your Site is called MySite, the folder should be called scClient_MySite. This should be the Site on which you are enabling Accelerate.

  3. Copy the \ProgramData\Globalscape\EFT Server Enterprise\scClient\scClientMaster\src\ directory to your new folder.

  4. Copy your customized image files to \ProgramData\Globalscape\EFT Server Enterprise\scClient\scClient_[site’s name]\src\images.

  5. On the Site's Gateway tab, disable Accelerate (clear the check box), and then click Apply. This causes EFT to rebundle scClient files into scClient.exe, a self-extracting archive.

  6. Enable Accelerate (select the check box), and click Apply. This will recompile the scClient.exe module with the new images.

  7. To verify your changes, copy the scClient.exe link to the Clipboard, then paste into your browser and download it. (The DMZ Gateway and the Accelerate module must be activated and enabled.)

To restore original images for the scClient

The directory path listed below is the default EFT configuration path; your EFT path may be different. If you are using HA (active-active), then the scClient folder will be in the shared configuration path, not the default. e.g., \\Shared Config Path\ScClient

  1. Do one of the following:

    1. Copy the backup images (that were made earlier) into the folder C:\ProgramData\Globalscape\EFT Server Enterprise\scClient\scClient_MySite\src\images\

      - or -

    2. Copy images from the following directory:  C:\ProgramData\Globalscape\EFT Server Enterprise\scClient\scClientMaster\src\images

  2. In the EFT administration interface, click on the Site's Gateway tab and disable Accelerated Transfers (clear the check box).

  3. Click Apply, select the check box to turn it back on, and click to Apply again. This will recompile the scClient.exe module with the new images.

  4. Download the latest scClient from EFT using the link provided.
