How To Set Up An HTTP File Transfer

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Fri, Jan 15, 2021 @ 03:18 AM

Of all file transfer services out there, perhaps the easiest is using HTTP/S as a file transfer service, aka a web file transfer service. That's because users don't have to install anything. They'll only need to upload or download files from your service for a web browser. If you're using JSCAPE MFT Server, setting up an HTTP/HTTPS file transfer service is easy as well.

JSCAPE is a managed file transfer protocol solution that supports any protocol and any platform. Fully scalable and flexible, JSCAPE's managed FTP server enables users to handle multiple protocols (FTPS, SFTP, AS2 and OFTP, as well as SSH and SSL/TLS) from a single server. This makes it possible to simplify enterprise file transfers, improve compliance with two-factor authentication

With JSCAPE, users can meet any enterprise file sharing needs, including HTTP file transfers. Let me show you how it's done.

How To Enable Anonymous File Uploads On Your Web File Transfer Server

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Fri, Jan 08, 2021 @ 03:02 PM

Not everyone using your web file transfer server needs to have a user account. There can be instances when it's perfectly fine for a user to just carry out an anonymous file upload. Meaning, that user doesn't have to login. This set up can be useful in cases where an outsider just needs to do a one-off upload. We'll show you how to enable that functionality on JSCAPE MFT Server.

How to Set Up SSL Client Authentication | JSCAPE

Posted by John Carl Villanueva on Sun, Jan 03, 2021 @ 05:18 AM

[Last updated: January 2021] People who use SSL/TLS to secure their online transactions/file transfers are mostly only familiar with two of its security functions: 1. That it can encrypt data in transit and 2. That it can enable clients to authenticate the server. They're likely not making use of another feature that can greatly enhance SSL security even more - client certificate authentication.

We already talked about client certificate authentication and its benefits on a previous post, so if you want to learn more about it, I suggest you click that link. In that post, we never got to talk about how to enable client certificate authentication on the server side. This quick post will be all about that.
