THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:
- EFT Server, version 6.1 and later
(Does not apply to the HTML 5 version of WTC available in EFT v7.x and later as it does not use the JRE.)
Can I create static cookies to use with the Web Transfer Client (WTC)?
Yes, you can pass static cookie values to the WTC Java applet.
In the EFTWebClient.htm file (e.g., C:\Program Files\Globalscape\EFT Server Enterprise\web\public\EFTClient\wtc\EFTWebClient.htm), you can specify a cookie parameter and a cookie value for each browser type. The cookie references must increment cookiename/cookievalue, cookiename1/cookievalue1, cookiename2/cookievalue2, and so on, and be different from those already used in the file. (You can have up to 16 param/value pairs.)
To specify the cookies
- Make a backup copy of EFTWebClient.htm, and then open it in a text editor.
- Under "Load applet based on browser type," in a separate section for each browser type, you will find parameters for cookies:
<PARAM NAME = "param5" VALUE="cookiename"> \
<PARAM NAME = "value5" VALUE="websessionid"> \
<PARAM NAME = "param6" VALUE="cookievalue"> \
<PARAM NAME = "value6" VALUE="<%=session_id%>"> \
<PARAM NAME = "param8" VALUE="cookieoverwrite"> \
<PARAM NAME = "value8" VALUE="true"> \
<PARAM NAME = "param15" VALUE="sso_cookies"> \
<PARAM NAME = "value15" VALUE="<%=sso_cookie%>"> \
- Add the appropriate parameters for each browser type, such as:
param10 = "cookiename1" \>
value10 = "testcookie" \
param11 = "cookievalue1" \
value11 = "testcookievalue" \
For Internet Explorer, Chrome, and other browsers :
<PARAM NAME = "param10" VALUE="cookiename1"> \
<PARAM NAME = "value10" VALUE="testcookie"> \
<PARAM NAME = "param11" VALUE="cookievalue1"> \
<PARAM NAME = "value11" VALUE="testcookievalue"> \
- Save the file.
- Open the WTC in a browser and log in to verify your changes.
