QUESTION

Can I use the old HTML Listing and Upload form (Plain-Text Client) from Secure FTP Server?

ANSWER

Yes, you have two methods.

  1. Force all clients at the server level through a registry entry.
  2. Modify the URL at the client level so that individual users can access the legacy interface.

METHOD 1

To force all clients to use the legacy Plain Text Client (PTC 1.0), create the DWORD plain_text_client at the following registry location:

32-bit:  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0\EFTClient\

64-bit:  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0\EFTClient\

  • If the DWORD value is 1 = PTC1.0(Legacy) will be used.
  • If the DWORD value is missing or 2 = PTC2.0

METHOD 2

In version 6.2.0 and later, if you want to use version 1 of the PTC arbitrarily, do the following:

  1. Log into the web interface using your credentials.
  2. Delete any other parameters after the URL in the address bar.
  3. Add /?html immediately at the end of the URL. https://eftserver.mysite.com/?html

Below is an example of the "legacy" PTC:
