Web Based Configuration possible security flaw

Solved!
Go to solution

My coworkers and I found something quite interesting today...despite having configured FTP security settings (which have been confirmed to be set up and funcitoning. I can't open an FTP session to our remote target without specifying an admin user name and password) if you open the NI web based configuration tool in a browser, you can FTP to and from the target using the remote file browser without being logged in at all! Has anyone else experienced this??

Apparently, these permissions are separate from FTP, but you can set these particular permissions on the Security configuration page of the web based configuration utility.
