Topic "Locking Down WinSCP"

Author Message

Hi,
I need to install WinSCP on a few computers to allow some users to upload a file to our server. I don't want to install FTP since I already have and use ssh and scp to manage this server. I have created a user and granted them access to the needed folder. I installed WinSCP and configure it to log into this folder directly. I also removed all toolbars and status bars. I basically would like to lock down WinSCP so they cannot change any settings and will be stuck in just this folder. I have the settings save in the Windows Registry. Could I change permissions on the registry settings, would this stop them from changing or just saving the changes? Is there a way to remove the menu list or just the view? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Makes sense... and if you save the settings in a .ini, set the file permissions to give the users read-only access (the same for Registry).

ask your administrator to change permissions in active directories.
no need to change in registry

u have to install winscp to that permissions, of course

in case of linux os would be easier
