FTP access group of users to group of sites

Unanswered Question
Oct 20th, 2009

Hello

We have an S160 with Async 6.3. Our organisation blocks FTP access for the users, however there is a small group of users who need access to 3 or 4 FTP sites. This group of users is an Active Directory group.

How can I set this up so these users can access only these FTP sites and nothing else, but still have them use the same global policies for the HTTP URL categories, etc.

My attempts so far have failed in that they are either losing HTTP access altogther, or they are able to FTP to any site.

Thanks

I have this problem too.

i guess you should create a new policy and put it above teh general users policy
give access to the same as general + ftp and do some testing
out your own user there or a test user from the active directory

What about restricting the users to just the selected FTP sites? I don't think what you're saying is sufficient. Don't I have to do something with the identity?

if you that group of users at Active directory than you can use the same group from web security to create a new access policy for the group .

Yes, but how are you stopping that group of users from getting to any FTP site?
