tempaccount restrictions

Hi I´m new to this and very thankful for the powerful tool you provide.


In my root folder I created an up- and downloadfolder which I want to use for external Users only (via sharing).


In the downloadfolder I want to provide files which can be downloaded. If the external user enter this folder using the link I send them, they should be able to see the content and download it.


The upload folder should be used to upload stuff, so the external User should´t be able to see the content. The only Option is to upload files.


So I used the UserManager to edit the rights for the Tempaccount, but the outcome is not as desired.


Externals can´t see files in the download folder, unless I choose the files the are allowed to download, but I want to give them the choice within this a subfolder.

Also eventhough, I did not set the right for Uploading in the download folder, external Users get the Option to Upload files.


Could you be so kind and tell me what I`m doing wrong.




Hello, Morton.


You need to add different folders for the upload and download in the UserManager and there set the permissions.

The TempAccount is a template for all accounts that are created by a share, it should barely be customized but not the way you did that.


Under the below links you should get a better insight of what is done and how can be done in CrushFTP:

Thanks for your quick replay and sorry for my late response.


I set the permissions as you suggested, the outcome is the same though.


  • Only marked files can be seen and downloaded. If i share a folder with files, the folder is empty if the external user uses my share link.
  • Users can still upload files to the download folder and overcome my restrictions



As I want to use shares all the same way it should´t matter if i mess around with the TempAccount template, shouldn´t it?

As I understand you might not be clear on how CrushFTP works, please email me at support@crushftp.com so that we can have a quick screen sharing session and see what issues you have and solve them. 


Thanks,

Arpad.
