Manage user and group access

Use the Denied Users pane and the Denied Groups pane of the Access Rules page to add and remove user and groups that SecureTransport prevents from connecting to the FTP and HTTP servers.

Every group listed as a denied group must be defined at the operating system level so that SecureTransport can determine the group name from the GID in the user account.

The following topics provide how-to instructions for managing user and group access:
