Reverse Banned File Logic

THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:

  • EFT Server version 5 and later

DISCUSSION

On a Site's Advanced tab (in version 5) or Security tab (in version 6 and later), you can block the upload or download of certain file types.

The key below reverses that "banned file logic" from the current "By default allow all files except those below" to "By default exclude all files except those below:” That is, a REVERSAL of the current logic. The reversed logic filters out ALL by default, and only allows in those that the administrator specifies. (For example, if you want to allow only .txt files.)

To activate this feature, create the following key:

On 32-bit systems:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 3.0\]

On 64-bit systems:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 3.0\]

"RestrictionByFileNameOnUpload"=dword:00000001

(DWORD; non-zero means reverse the logic for banned files [exclude all except those listed])
