Securing Incoming and Outgoing Transfers

This section describes how to configure IBM Aspera Faspex to deny all transfers except for ones initiated by or sent to permitted users. This is accomplished by updating the global authorization settings for your installation of IBM Aspera Enterprise Server or IBM Aspera Connect Server.
  1. Go to Start menu > All Programs > Aspera > Enterprise Server > Enterprise Server and then select Configuration > Global > Authorization.
  2. Select Override for both Incoming Transfers and Outgoing Transfers. Change both settings to deny. You can then set transfer permissions on an individual user basis using the Users tab.

  3. (Complete this step if your system is a dedicated Faspex Server and is not performing transfers with IBM Aspera Enterprise Server or Connect Server) Only allow user "faspex" within Enterprise Server

    Launch IBM Aspera Enterprise Server by going to Start menu > All Programs > Aspera > Enterprise Server > Enterprise Server, and then select the Configuration button and Users tab. Ensure that faspex is the only user listed.
