Configuring file servers

The File Server subsystem allows access to the Alfresco Content Services data stores through the SMB/CIFS and FTP protocols. This allows you to browse to the repository using Windows Explorer or by creating a Network Place.

Note: We recommend that you implement an allowed authentication mechanism relative to the file server you are using. For more information on the different types of authentication subsystems and their use, see Authentication subsystem types.

As with other Alfresco Content Services subsystems, the File Server subsystem exposes all of its configuration options as properties that can be controlled through a JMX interface or the global properties file.
