    FTP Filter

      Hy everyone!

       

      I have to use FTP connection through my MWG 7.1.0.6. Here in my office I have two appliances running MWG 7.1.0.6 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!

       

      Regards!

          Hello,

           

          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.

           

          Best,

          Andre
