THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:
- EFT Server version 4.0.8 - 5.2.x
NOTE: In EFT Server version 6 and later, you can specify the location of the EFT Server configuration files in the
administration interface. The registry entry below is not necessary.
In EFT Server 4.0.8 - 5.2.x, you can create a registry key to override the location of the FTP.CFG file. When this key is present, the FTP.CFG is loaded from the specified path instead of the default, which is the folder hosting the executable. This feature was added to assist with multiple nodes using the same configuration, such as active/passive configurations.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0\Config
For example, if you want EFT Server to use the CFG file at G:\Configs\EFT\FTP.cfg, you would create the following registry
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0\Config\]"Path="G:\Configs\EFT\"
Include the trailing backslash. UNC paths can be used as well. The Server service must be run under an account that has access (NTFS) to the specified resource. (For instance, if it is logging in as LocalSystem and the CFG file is not saved to the shared drive.)
