EFT Server supports the following database types for authenticating users:
GlobalSCAPE Authentication does not rely on outside sources for user information. All information in the database is:
Protected from the operating system
Contained within the .aud
file located in EFT Server installation folder (e.g., C:\Documents
and Settings\All Users\Application Data\GlobalSCAPE\EFT Server Enterprise)
The path to the .aud file is defined in ftp.cfg. If you change the path to either of those files, you must redefine the path to the .aud file on the Site's General tab User auth manager configuration.
Encrypted and can only be modified through the Administrator.
Windows Active Directory (NTLM/AD) Authentication. Using this method, EFT Server assigns permissions to users from the NT user database on the system that is running EFT Server. EFT Server queries the Primary Domain Controller (PDC) for your domain and adds all domain users to the Settings Template tree.
LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is a protocol for accessing information directories on an LDAP Server.
ODBC Authentication allows all users in an external ODBC database to have access to EFT Server.
Once a Site has been created, you cannot change the authentication method.
