Set File Upload and Download Permissions

In addition to configuring which files users have access to, you can also set permissions that determine what users can do with files.

Note: You can set different permissions for each virtual directory. By default these permissions apply to all users. You can use subconfigurations to provide different permissions to specific users or groups of users.

To set file action permissions

  1. On the Windows Start menu, click Attachmate Reflection > Reflection SSH Server Configuration.
  2. On the left panel of the Configuration tab, click SFTP Directories.
  3. Click Add to create a new directory, or select an existing directory and click Edit.
  4. Under Permissions, configure the access you want to allow. For example, to allow users to view and download files, but disallow any changes to the server files, leave Browse and Download checked, and clear Upload, Delete, and Rename.
  • Save your settings (File > Save Settings).
  • The following permission options are available:



    View file and directory lists.



    View file contents.



    Modify files, create files, create directories, and modify file attributes.



    Delete files and directories.



    Rename files and directories.
