Group Access Control Dialog Box

Getting there

From the Group Access Control dialog box, you can add rules to allow or deny group access. For additional information, including examples, see Controlling Access by Group.

The options are:

Group name(s)

A regular expression specifying one or more groups. Use a backslash before characters in the group name that have a special meaning in regular expressions.

To specify a Windows Active Directory domain, use either a single forward slash or two backward slashes between the domain name and the group name. The following formats are equivalent:


Note: You must include the domain name for all domain groups. If you omit domain information, the server looks for groups defined on the local computer.

To specify a local group, use no domain name, or specify the local computer name for the domain name.

Note for FileXpress Gateway administrators: For groups in the FileXpress LDAP server, set the domain name to FileXpress. For groups in an added LDAP server, use the Domain name as it appears on the LDAP Servers page in Gateway Administrator.

Allow Connect

Allow access to the specified group(s).

Deny Connect

Deny access to the specified group(s).


  • You can specify a comma-separated list of groups in the Group name(s) text box. When you click OK, each group in the list is added as a new line item in your list of configured groups.
  • Reflection for Secure IT always adds ^ to the beginning and $ to the end of the regular expressions that you enter. This ensures that the regular expression matches the entire input.
