Admin

These settings control administration of the FTP server and overall management of startup and data recording services.

Admin

  • Admin Ports - This option controls what port the administration control service listens on. This value should be entered into remote administration clients when attempting to connect to the service. This option allows multiple ports and also for ports to listen on a single IP address. Please enter multiple ports in the format: "port1;port2;iporhost3:port3".
  • Admin User - This is the username that is required by remote administration clients.
  • Admin Password - This is the password that is required by remote administration clients.
  • Settings Auto Reload Interval (Minutes) - This value controls how often the settings are reloaded into the FTP server. If you intend to perform external manipulation of the settings or use clustering, a lower value is recommended.
  • Auto Delete Monitoring Data After (Days) - This value controls the maximum life time of activity and session data. This ensures that the FTP server will be restricted in how much data it can collect over time.
  • Auto Delete Logs Data After (Days) - This value controls the maximum life time of log data. This ensures that the FTP server will be restricted in how much data it can collect over time.
  • Auto Activate - When the FTP server service first loads, this option will control whether it is activated by default. It is recommended that you enable this option.
  • Auto Load Tray Icon - This option controls whether the administration client application is pre-loaded when a user logs into Windows. This allows for quick loading of the administration client and also the presence of a tray icon.

IP Control

  • Enable IP Control - If enabled, the entries within the list box will be enforced.
  • IP Control - This is the list of allowed/denied IPs, in order of execution from top to bottom. If an entry matches the client IP, then the provided 'Allow' or 'Deny' option will be enforced.

IP Control Entry

  • Allow - If selected, and the provided IP or range matches the connection's IP, then the connection will be allowed access.
  • Deny - If selected, and the provided IP or range matches the connection's IP, then the connection will be denied access and disconnected.
  • IP Address - Will evaluate true if the connection's IP exactly matches this IP address.
  • IP Address and Subnet Mask - Will evaluate true if the connection's IP matches this IP address. Both IPs will be filtered by the provided subnet mask before comparison.
  • IP Address Range - Will evaluate true if the connection's IP falls between the provided IP addresses.
  • IP of Host or Domain - Will evaluate true if the connection's IP matches one of the IPs of the provided host/domain.
  • Reverse IP Lookup Matches - Will evaluate true if the connection's reverse IP lookup matches the provided host/domain. This match permits the use of *'s (eg. *.codecrafters.com).
  • Any Locally Assigned IP - Will evaluate true if the connection is local (i.e. the client and server processes are running on the same computer).
