Lockdown File Sharing By Group / User

Version 5

    I have seen a few topics related to file sharing security. So I figured I should post something for everyone.

    If you want to disable file sharing all together use the "Client Control" plug-in.

     

    To do this we will be using  the "Packet Filter" plug-in. Its pretty straight forward.

     

    Create a new group called "OpenFire No File Sharing"

    Install the Packet Filter" plug-in.

    Create a new rule.

    Set "Action" to Reject

    Set "Packet Type" to iq

     

    Note:

    This will also prevent snapshot files from sending.
