EFT Express (SMB) & Enterprise

THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:

  • EFT v7.2.1 and later

DISCUSSION

The registry settings below will enable WTC authentication by the Site's authentication manager (e.g., AD/LDAP) and then with a session-specific, one-time passcode (e.g., a code sent via text or email message).

  1. After creating the registry settings below, restart the EFT server service, then log in to EFT with your AD/LDAP password.
    • In versions prior to v7.4.13, you would be asked to provide your LDAP/AD password twice.
    • In v7.4.13 and later, setting UseAuthManagerPasswordForMultistep to any non-zero value will skip the second AD/LDAP authentication.
  2. After authenticating with AD/LDAP, EFT sends a request is sent to the SMS authentication server to get your token; enter that token in the login screen.

Create the following registry entry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0\Config\

Value name: UseAuthManagerWithMultiStep

Type: DWORD

Default Value: false

Cached: yes

Backup/Restore: yes

Description: When non-zero, causes authentication to FIRST use the Site's authentication manager and, if succeeded, proceed to RSA/RADIUS authentication to finish authentication.

Value name:

UseAuthManagerPasswordForMultistep (added in v7.4.13)

Type: DWORD

Default Value: 0/false

Cached: yes

Backup/Restore: yes

Description: When non-zero, EFT, after successful authenticating user with their password against site's auth manager, uses the password to authenticate the user against RSA/RADIUS.

Value name: AuthManagerWithMultiStepChallenge

Type: STRING

Default Value: Enter the RSA SecurID token to complete authentication:

Max Length: 255

Cached: yes

Backup/Restore: yes

Description: Specifies the challenge text to display after succeeding with authentication manager authentication, prompting user for RSA/RADIUS input.
