    Right now I found the "Simple Mode" check box. I'm not able to uncheck it, can someone give me an information on how to change it? I'm using LDAP Users.

    Hi Marco,

     

    Thanks for reaching out.

    Is it possible to assign a second folder (in parallel or subfolder) to the user he can access? I think about a global folder not created in the tree of the home directories. I thought I can assign different groups with different directories to one user, but it seems only one group can be assigned at a time. Is there a way to assign a global folder (additionally) to any user?

     

    You can assign multiple virtual directories to a user, but you have to uncheck the option for "Enable Simple Directory Mode"  I would recommend reviewing our documentation on the Virtual Directory System

     

    Each virtual directory that you add for a user can have a separate and distinct set of access permissions. The settings applied to a top-level virtual directory filter down to all of that root directory’s subdirectories.

    Permissions can only be assigned at the top, root level.

     

    In version 12.2, you can assign more than one group to a native Cerberus user.

     

    What about a defined structure below the user home? Let’s say I want to have an Upload folder pre-created to any user’s home, is this possible?

    You would need to create a folder for uploads, it cannot automatically be generated.

    After installation I opened the web client and was surprised because instead of an English surface I got a German one. So, I like to know which languages are already included? (We have customers and sites all over the world)

    Cerberus doesn't create a language file until someone attempts to log in to the web client with their PC and/or browser settings set to another language. If the server you have installed Cerberus on is set to your desired language, you can try connecting to the Cerberus Web Client on that server to create your desired language translation file. If you do that and still don't see your desired language on the drop-down (after closing and reopening the user interface), you may want to go back and check the language settings on your server and browser if your language is missing from the drop-down list.  You can learn more about our Localization tool here.

     

     

    Let’s say I like to prevent the users from sending shares via E-Mail (because of a mail company policy). In the moment I haven’t activated the “Disable all public sharing” the field for the default public send SMTP server is auto filled because I created an Event Target before. How can I configure the possibility to create shares (they have to send the link via own Outlook mailbox) but not the possibility to send it out of the https client?

    Unfortunately, at this time, there is not an option to only disable the mailing of public shares.

    In the future, Marco, you can open a ticket with our support team with any questions that you have by emailing support@cerberusftp.com

     

    I would also encourage you to review our user guide by visiting https://support.cerberusftp.com/.  We have a lot of great articles that may provide you with the answers you are looking for.

    Right now I found the "Simple Mode" check box. I'm not able to uncheck it, can someone give me an information on how to change it? I'm using LDAP Users.

    You can customize the directory and permission mappings for individual LDAP users by going to LDAP Users > 'User Custom Mappings. Customizing an LDAP account is accomplished by mapping an LDAP user account to a Cerberus group account.

    This is explained in more detail in this support article.  https://support.cerberusftp.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001964144-LDAP-Mappings
