WinSCP allows system administrators to restrict or enforce certain functionality of the application.
Configuring the Restrictions
System administrator can configure following:
- Restrict password storing.
- Restrict connection to servers without having their host keys accepted in advance.
- Force authentication banners being shown.
These restrictions are configured via "local machine" registry root key (modifiable only by system administrators). Example of corresponding registry export follows:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Martin Prikryl\WinSCP 2]
Unmodifiable Stored Session
Administrator can set session setting
Special to 1 to restrict user from modifying
or deleting the session accidentally (Note that the setting can be changed by end-user). Such session
will also be highlighted in session list.
