Topic "Remove / prohibit "New Site" in the navigation"

Author Message


Hi everyone,

Due to security concerns we want to give certain users only a pre-populated list of sessions rather than allowing them to add additional servers/hosts through "New Site". So we just give those an ini file that holds x amount of sessions to login to.

Is there a way to remove or prohibit this through a setting with the winscp.ini?

You can set the INI file read only to prevent any changes. But obviously that prevents any changes. And it still won't prevent the users from trying to connect to a server outside of the preconfigured site list. You should make such restrictions on firewall-level.
