FTP Filter

Hy everyone!

I have to use FTP connection through my MWG Here in my office I have two appliances running MWG and both are configured as Proxy HA and clustered.

FTP connection here is not allowed for everyone. Some people got access through authorization. So I want to make this filter on MWG.

For example, I want to authorize some ftp hosts only.  Not all the traffic through ftp protocol.

Is there anyway to make this? Authorize only ftp hosts that I want and block all of the others?

Sorry for my English.. There's a long time that I don't write anything in English...

Thank you all!

Re: FTP Filter


you could use some properties to set this up. Connection.Protocol and Authentication.Username oder Authentication.Usergroups may be a good start.

You can add a rule like this:

Connection.Protocol equals "FTP" and Authentication.Usergroups does not contain "FTP-Users"  -> Block

In this case all FTP connections made by users who are not part of the "FTP-Users" domain group are blocked.

Instead of groups you can use user names or IP addresses, and combine it with the "Connection.Protocol" to avoid all traffic is blocked for them.

I hope this gives you an idea how to start.
