Firewall Tab (Security Properties Dialog Box)

Getting there (FTP Client)

The Firewall tab of the Security Properties dialog box is visible only if you are running the Reflection FTP Client.


Use Firewall

Enables connections through a firewall. You must select this check box before you can set other items.



The FTP Client sends different commands for logging onto a firewall and connecting to an FTP server based on the server style you specify.


Server name

Specify the name of the firewall that you use to log onto an FTP server.


User name

Specify a valid user name registered on the firewall server. For case-sensitive servers, you must use the appropriate case.

This setting is unavailable if Style is set to username@servername and the Password authentication check box is cleared.



Enter your password for the firewall server. The specified string is sent to the firewall as part of the login sequence when you open a connection.


Save password

If the check box is selected, the string entered in the Password box is saved in encrypted format in your FTP settings file. Each character in the password will display as an asterisk (*) in text boxes and in the FTP command window.

When this check box is cleared, the password is not saved, and you are prompted for a password each time an FTP server connection is opened using the firewall.


Password authentication

This setting is available when Style is set to username@servername. If your firewall is set up to authenticate the user prior to opening a connection to an FTP server, select this check box.

If you have selected a firewall style that requires authentication, this option is selected automatically and you cannot change it.
