How to: fix a white-list or safe-list suddenly empty

Syncplify.me Server! version: 4.0.0-4.1.4

Occasionally users report that their white-list or safe-list in the web management interface suddenly shows up as “empty” and they cannot add any more IP addresses or networks to it. That bug was already previously documented in our knowledge base, and has been resolved/fixed as of version 4.1.5.

The misbehavior is caused by the fact that an Admin has added the same IP or network twice to the list(s).
Upgrading to the latest version will prevent Admins from adding any more duplicates… but it does not sanitize the existing lists, so you will still have to “clean” your lists manually before you can see them again. Continue reading

Monitor a directory, and upload/archive files as they arrive

Syncplify.me FTP Script! version: 3.1.6+

Monitoring a directory for certain files, and as soon as they become available (someone puts them in that directory) upload them somewhere else and then move the original files to a different location (archive) on the local disk. This is one of the most common questions from our FTP Script! users.

For such reason we have prepared the sample script below. It will probably fit the most common cases, and it’s a decent learning tool as well as starting point to create your own (more complex) scripts to accomplish your very own particular task.  Continue reading

Hiding certain files from a directory listing

Syncplify.me Server! version: 4.0.24+

As of version 4.0.24, Syncplify.me Server! has introduced two new features:

  • the BeforeSendDirListToClient event handler
  • the RemoveFromDirList method in the scripting framework

These features can be used together to hide certain files from a directory listing. This is useful, for example, when you don’t want certain users to see certain file types when they connect to your SFTP server, but you still want to show such files to other users.

The first thing to do is creating a script. Let’s assume, for the sake of this example, that you want to hide some AutoCAD® files, and specifically all DWG and DXF files. Then you will need a script like this:

Once the script is ready, you will have to open the user profile you want to apply the rule to, and add an event handler to it, like this: Continue reading
