Pass the Client's IP Address to the Authentication Request

Karla Marsh
EFT

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.)

    For a spreadsheet of advanced properties, search for the "Advanced Properties" topic in the EFT help 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 advanced property, EFT alters the password that is sent to LDAP (during the BIND request) to take on the form: <client IP>@@<password>.

To activate this feature

  • In v8.0 and later, add the name:value pair to the advancedproperties.json file as described in the "Advanced Properties" topic in the online help for your version of EFT.
  • {

    "PasswordContainsClientIP": "true"

    }

  • In versions prior to v8.0:
  • 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.
