Fileshare Server

By default, the Fileshare Password System is not active when you invoke the Fileshare Server. If you want password security activated, use the /pf (Password File) option in the Fileshare Server configuration file, for example:


/pf password.fil /s server1


-pf password.fil -s server1

specifies that for the Fileshare Server, server1, Fileshare Password Security is enabled and the password file is password.fil. The Fileshare Server uses this file to determine whether a Fileshare Client is allowed to connect to this Fileshare Server.

The Password File Maintenance Utility is used to create the password file and add user-ID and password entries. See the section Password File Maintenance for further information on this utility.
