Most users of JSCAPE MFT Server are already familiar with directory monitors. You often use it to monitor a directory for newly added files. Although that capability has helped immensely in automating a lot of business processes, it had its limitations. In the past, directory monitors could only be used to monitor local directories and UNC paths but not directories on remote servers. In the upcoming MFT Server 11, that's going to be possible.Read More

The problem of inadvertently sending an attachment with the wrong email address, or attaching the wrong file, are sources of data leakage. Adding password protection allows you to provide an extra layer of security when making ad-hoc file transfers.
One of the challenges of setting up a high availability environment for transfer servers is in making sure the servers involved have the same configurations. But if you're using JSCAPE MFT Server, there are easy ways to do it. One option is to set up your MFT Server instances to use an external RDBMS as a shared global datastore. The second is to use the Failover module. In this post, we'll focus on the latter. MFT Server's Failover module will enable you to synchronize your servers either automatically or manually with a single click.
If you are familiar with JSCAPE MFT Server you may already be aware of the power and flexibility that Triggers can offer you as an administrator. If you are new to JSCAPE MFT Server, Triggers allow you to automate processes with the use of Event Type parameters and Trigger Actions. Basically, Event Types are predefined events with configurable parameters that represent a condition, when that condition is met it triggers the associated action to be performed. In this article I will show you how to create a Trigger to automate the deletion of aged files and explain how the Trigger accomplishes this task.
In one of my previous posts, I defined what an SSL file transfer is. Today, I'm going to show you how to actually set up an SSL file transfer service on JSCAPE MFT Server. After that, I'll demonstrate how an AnyClient user would connect to your server and perform a secure file transfer using that particular service.
In the tutorial How To Create Custom Trigger Actions we demonstrated how to create custom trigger actions in MFT Server.
In this tutorial we will discuss Functions, how they are used in Triggers, and how to create your own custom Functions using the extensible API provided in MFT Server.
As explained in an older post, one popular method of securing data at rest is by using encrypted file systems. Today, we're going to introduce you to another method known as PGP encryption. Although encrypted file systems provide a decent level of protection for your data, they have certain limitations.
Here's something that's particularly useful if you want to provide access control to JSCAPE MFT Server directories based on need to know and according to job responsibilities. It's called Groups. JSCAPE managed file transfer server Groups are named sets of virtual directories and file system permissions that may be assigned to multiple user accounts. You can use them to comply with certain laws and regulations like PCI-DSS, HIPAA, and SOX.
This is Part 3 of our 3-part blog post showing how to set up a Linux FTP Server. Let's recap what we've accomplished so far. In Part 1, you learned how to prep your Linux server by installing Java. Then in Part 2, you learned how to install JSCAPE MFT Server and configure it for remote administration via its admin web interface. Here in our last installment, we'll teach you how to activate an FTP service on your managed file transfer Linux server using that administrative web interface.
