Allowing Users to Request Accounts through the Web
Users can request new accounts through the HTTP/S Web Client in the Enterprise edition of Cerberus FTP Server. A “Request a New Account” link will appear on the login page if the administrator decides to allow web account requests.
HTTP/S Login Page with “Request a New Account” Link
Requesting a New Account
The account request page allows a user to submit a request for a new account to the Cerberus FTP Server system administrator. The user can set a password for the account (subject to password policy rules) at the time of the account request. This relieves the administrator from having to set a new password for the user and from having to securely distribute that password.
Event Rules can be enabled on the server to automatically email the administrator whenever a new account request is made.
