Users can be added and modified in the Cerberus FTP Server user database by opening up the User Manager and selecting the Users tab. To add a user, select “New” from the button to the right of the Cerberus User Accounts group box. A new user will appear under the user list box. The newly created user will already be in rename mode, so simply type in the new name of the user. All usernames must be unique and are case insensitive. Once you have entered the new username, press enter to commit the change. The user can then be configured by clicking on the user’s name in the user list box.
The most commonly used of these properties are:
|Password||The password for the user.
Note: The Password always displays as 7 (*) characters.
SSH Authentication Requirement: Determines the authentication requirements for logging into an SFTP interface. Valid options are:
Two Factor Authentication: Toggles allowing and requiring two factor authentication. Settings are:
|Group||A Cerberus FTP Server Group that this user belongs to.|
|Is Disabled||Determines whether the account can login or not. A disabled account cannot login into the server.|
|Is Simple Directory||In simple directory mode the administrator can only assign one directory to represent the virtual directory for a user. See below for an explanation of this setting.|
|Is Anonymous||If checked, the user password is ignored and the user can be logged in using any password.|
|Require Secure Control||(Applies to FTP only) If enabled, this user can only login to the server using a secure TLS/SSL encrypted connection.|
|Require Secure Data||(Applies to FTP only) If enabled, file transfers will only be allowed over secure TLS/SSL encrypted connections.|
|Disable After Date||If a date is set here then the account will become disabled after the date specified.
Note: The granularity of the timer is 30 minutes. The account will be disabled within 30 minutes of the time set and a message stating "Disable after time reached for user" will be added to the Cerberus log.
|Allow Protocols to Login||Controls which protocols a user is allowed to log in with. If a protocol is not checked then the user will not be allowed to login using that protocol.|
|Allowed IP Addresses||A comma-separated list of IP addresses that this user can log in from. If no IP addresses are specified then no per-user IP address filtering is enforced. IP addresses can be specified as a single IP, a range of IP addresses separated by a dash, e.g. 192.168.0.100 – 192.168.0.150, or a CIDR-formatted IP address range. Multiple formats can be combined, with each single IP or range separated by a comma. Note, global IP address blacklists or whitelists are always enforced first, regardless of this setting.|
|Simultaneous Logins||The maximum number of connections this user can make to the server at the same time.|
|Maximum Upload File Size||This field can be used to limit the maximum filesize of an uploaded file. This value defaults to unlimited. The filesize is specified in bytes. Specify 0 or any non-positive value to reset the maximum filesize to unlimited.|
