|General Configuration Reference|
Aspera strongly recommends setting a docroot (a limited area of the server's file system) for Aspera users. The default blank configuration gives users full access to the server's file system with read, write, and browse privileges.
To configure the docroot options, click Configuration and set configurations for Global, Groups, and Users under their respective Docroot tabs. Select Override in the Absolute Path row to set a docroot and adjust read, write, and browse privileges. User docroot settings take precedence over group settings, which take precedence over global settings.
The following table describes the docroot configuration options:
|Absolute Path||The docroot: the area of the file system that is
accessible to Aspera users. The default empty value gives users access to
the entire file system. You can set one global docroot and then further
restrict access to the file system by group or individual user.
You can also set multiple docroots and make them conditional based on the IP address from which the connection is made by editing aspera.conf. To do so, edit the absolute path setting by adding the IP address using the following syntax:
|file path||undefined (total access)|
|Read Allowed||Setting this to true (default) allows users to transfer from the designated area of the file system as specified by the Absolute Path value.||
|Write Allowed||Setting this to true (default) allows users to transfer to the designated area of the file system as specified by the Absolute Path value.||
|Browse Allowed||Setting this to true (default) allows users to browse the directory.||
