Enabling User Access to the Web Transfer Client

(Requires the HTTP/S module in EFT SMB/Express) Before users can log in to EFT using the Web Transfer Client (WTC), EFT administrator must configure EFT to allow connections from the WTC. Active Directory domain users must have logon permission on EFT computer in order to log on to EFT through the WTC. This is accomplished by adding AD domain users to the "Allow log on locally" list on EFT computer. If an AD domain user is not in this list, logging on to EFT through the WTC will fail and an error message appears informing the user that Local login access is required to log on to EFT.

Stopping and restarting the Site disconnects everybody who is connected; users must log back in.
