Configuring File Storage

You can configure read permissions and transfer rate limitations of your file storage. Go to Server > File Storage, select the drop-down arrow next to the file storage's name, and select Edit.

Choose Directory

Click Browse and select a directory in the pop-up window. Choose one of the following options:

  • You can perform a simple search for a directory by entering it into the name field and clicking Search.
  • You can perform an advanced search by clicking the Show Filters link, and entering your criteria.
  • You can sort the directory list by Name, Type, Largest first, Smallest first, Newest first, or Oldest first in descending order.

Read Permissions

Set the read permission. Choose from one of the following options:

  • Private: No one can use this file storage as a remote source.
  • Public: Any user with the Create packages from remote source permission can use it as a remote source.
  • Limited: Set a list of users who can use this file storage as a remote source. When you select Limited, Faspex displays the Custom Access Control section. Users must have the Create packages from remote source permission to use the file storage as a source.

File storage read permissions are set to Private by default.

Transfer Settings

If you want to override the default transfer settings, select Override default transfer settings to configure the following settings:

Initial Default Transfer Rate

Item Default
Initial upload rate: 10000 kbps
Initial download rate: 10000 kbps
Selecting Lock minimum rate and policy disables the ability to adjust transfer policies or minimum transfer rates for clients accessing this file storage. (Clients are, for example, Connect and Enterprise Server.)

Default Maximum Allowed Rate

Item Default
Maximum upload rate: 20000 kbps
Maximum download rate: 20000 kbps
Relay Transfer Rate
Item Default
Incoming relay rate: 45000 kbps
Outgoing relay rate: 45000 kbps
When a relay takes place between two servers with differing transfer rates, the transfer uses the smaller transfer rate between the two servers. For example, if there is a relay from server A to server B where the outgoing relay rate of server A is 20,000 kbps and the incoming relay rate of server B is 10,000 kbps, then the resulting relay transfer rate will be 10,000 kbps.
Note: Faspex uses Relay Transfer Rates for packages with files from remote sources and for relays to custom inbox or to relay destinations.

Advanced Configuration

In the Advanced Configuration options, you can specify secondary email addresses for a group of users that need to use a different address to authenticate to Faspex.


Alternate addresses support comma-delimited Classless Inter-Domain Routing (CIDR), allowing you to specify multiple subnets or a specific range of addresses. For example:,,10.0.0.*

Specify rules for when these secondary email addresses apply.

Use if requester’s address matches: Use secondary email addresses when the user's IP address matches the given range of addresses. For example: 192.168.0.*

Use if browser hostname matches: Use secondary email addresses when the user access Faspex through a URL that matches the given hostnames. For example:
