You can control the type of files that the FTP-proxy allows for downloads and uploads. For example, because many hackers use executable files to deploy viruses or worms on a computer, you could deny requests for *.exe files. Or, if you do not want to let users upload Windows Media files to an FTP server, you could add *.wma to the proxy definition and specify that these files are denied. Use the asterisk (*) as a wildcard character.
To define rules for an FTP server protected by the XTM device, modify the FTP-Server proxy action. To define rules for users who connect to external FTP servers, modify the FTP-Client proxy action.
If you modified a predefined proxy action, when you save the changes you are prompted to clone (copy) your settings to a new action.
For more information on predefined proxy actions, see About Proxy Actions.
