Requiring SSL for specific folders

Folders can be configured to appear only to clients who have connected with a minimum SSL strength. If a client is not using SSL or is using a lower strength of SSL than is required, the folder is not displayed in the file listing and cannot be accessed.

To require a minimum strength of SSL for a folder to display:

  1. From the top menu, select Server > Hosts. The Hosts page opens.
  2. Click the Host name of the host you want to open. The Host Settings page opens.
  3. From the left navigation menu, select Folders. The Folders page opens.
  4. Click the Folder you want to open.
  5. Select:
    • Only viewable with 40-bit SSL or higher
    • Only viewable with 128-bit SSL or higher

    If you specify 40- or 128-bit, the folder is not shown to clients connected without SSL or with an SSL strength lower than the specified strength.

    Note: Minimum SSL strength to view affects FTP listeners only. Clients connected over SSH/SFTP can view the folder regardless of this option selection.

  6. Click Save.
