Create system groups on your computer, and set up transfer settings for the group and its members.
You can set up transfer settings based on your system's user groups. If users within a group do not have individual transfer settings, then the group's transfer settings will be applied. Please note that Connect Server doesn't create user groups on the operating system for you, so you must ensure that the groups currently exist before adding them to your Aspera product. Follow the steps below to add user groups to Connect Server.
Ensure that you have an existing user group on your operating system, or create a new user group. For information on creating user groups, see your operating system documentation.
Run asperascp in a Terminal window (as a root user) to launch the application, and click Configuration.
Within the Server Configuration window, select the Groups tab, click and input the user group's name.
Go to Configuration and select the Groups tab. Choose your group, and utilize the Docroot, Authorization, Bandwidth, Network, File Handling and Precedence tabs to configure the transfer settings. Refer to the hyperlinked topics below for additional information.
|Document Root||The document root settings.|
|Authorization||Connection permissions, token key, and encryption requirements.|
|Bandwidth||Incoming and outgoing transfer bandwidth and policy settings.|
|Network||Network IP, port, and socket buffer settings.|
|File Handling||File handling settings, such as file block size, overwrite rules, and exclude pattern.|
|Configuration Precedence||When a user is a member of multiple groups, the precedence setting can be used to determine priority.|
