To map a virtual folder (Similar to a shortcut, a virtual folder points to an existing folder on your computer or another system.) to a network drive, you need to:
Establish a separate Windows account for the EFT Server service.
The account must have full access to any folder you want to make available on EFT Server.
Your account on the computer on which EFT Server is running must have full access to any folder you want to make available on EFT Server.
To map to a network drive
Create and assign a Windows account on the computer on which the EFT Server service is installed.
This should not be the default (system) account.
Assign restrictive file and folder permissions for this account.
If you are mapping to a network drive in a workgroup, create a matching account on the target remote computer. Make certain it uses the SAME user name and password. Restrict permissions to this account to allow users access to only the folders they need.
In the Administrator, connect to EFT Server, then click the Server tab.
Create a virtual folder for a folder on your networked drive. If you are administering remotely or the drive is not mapped to your computer, make sure that you use a UNC path name.
In the EFT Server Administration interface, assign permissions for users by clicking the VFS tab, clicking the folder to which you want to specify the permissions for that user, and then selecting or clearing the appropriate permission boxes.
You need to have administrative rights to the system on which the service is running to create accounts.
