Disable auto redirection to HTTPS for login and account management

Karla Marsh
EFT Express (SMB) & Enterprise

THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:

  • EFT Server Enterprise version 6.3.2.5 and later

DISCUSSION

When HTTPS is enabled, EFT Server will automatically redirect HTTP traffic to HTTPS for logins, forced password changes, and lost username and password functionality. The redirect check box in the administration interface controls both the login page and the connection, but only when HTTPS is enabled. The purpose of the registry override described below is to control whether the login portion of the session is redirected to HTTPS when redirect is OFF in the administration interface. (The redirect check box is unavailable when HTTPS is disabled.)

The following registry value will disable the redirection.

32-bit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0 "DisableHTTPAccountSecurity"=dword:00000001

64-bit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\WOW6432Node\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0 "DisableHTTPAccountSecurity"=dword:00000001
