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.

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.
