Functionality here is used to configure optional ("advanced') settings for the upload account.
Brute Force Attack Prevention for FTP
This protection allows you to defend the target storage group from excessive incorrect FTP login attempts. An offending client IP Address using this upload account is blocked from access for a specified amount of time, after a specified number of bad login attempts.
Click the checkbox to enable it and reveal additional settings:
- No. of Failed Login Attempts: Select the number of failed login attempts required to trigger the lockdown for an offending client IP address.
- Minimum Lockdown Period: Select the amount of time an offending client IP address should be blocked from further access attempts.
ACL Rule Sets
Access Control List (ACL) rule sets are collections of IP addresses or geographic regions ("Geos") that you create to either allow or block their access to a storage group. These help to prevent "man-in-the-middle password sniffing."
- Allow: Only requests coming from the IP addresses/Geos in the ACL rule set are allowed access.
- Block: Requests coming from the IP addresses/Geos in the ACL rule set are blocked.
These sets are created using the ACL Rule Sets entity.
Click the Select Rule Sets field and select the desired ACL Rule set from the drop-down. Repeat to add more rule sets.
Auto index zip files on upload
Configure your upload account to automatically index zip files for use with the Serve from Zip feature. Select the Append serve-from-zip index option to automatically apply an index to zip files during upload to NetStorage for use with Serve from Zip. This works with the Advanced Settings: Serve from Zip setting for your upload directory.
Auto-indexing supports the automatic indexing of zip files when using these protocols:
Use and configuration of Serve from Zip is fully discussed in the NetStorage - User Guide.
