Hi guys

there are indeed periods when there is an upsurge in the creation of unwanted accounts (normally about thirty per day) with peaks beyond 200 per day, a large majority is blocked by the antispam module but some manage to pass through when they have not been registered in the Stop Forum Spam database. Daily I report non-compliant profiles which causes them to be classified as unwanted until the Boss purges the list, it's a way for me to continue to participate on the forum after a long cooperation on development of HFS under Delphi to the use of javascript.

The forum would need to  to increase security against bots by a more complex registration system with catpcha imposing double verification either by using a HoneyPot and Time measuring, or a logical or mathematical textual test.

Usually when new subscribers fill out their signature or Personal Text, including promotional web links before posting a single message, it's a bad sign.

Some temporary domain names are being misused, ban filtering of these domains would most certainly reduce this influx of registrations every minute

hi Leo, thanks for warning me, I didn't see that.
I'll see what I can do.
Here is better to stay indoor during the day. I hope for a bike ride in the evening :)

Hi Rejetto, on the last 3 days, I've noticed (on different moments of the day), that there are many users registering accounts (most of them must be 'bots' and not real humans). I've noticed, seeing the 'Who's Online' page, that there are too many lines saying 'Registering for an account on the forum'. Although you could have a way to prune many of those inactive/fake accounts, I would like to report this to you, to see if you can do something to stop those bots (and avoid those bots overload the forum database with those fake registrations). Perhaps you already know this, but I'm commenting this just in case.

Take care, and I hope you are well (with those extremely hot temperatures, currently 37º on Rome). Here, on Argentina we are on winter, and currently have very low temperatures (only 3º on the morning). Have a nice Sunday...

@gogi1000: May I ask you some questions?

1) Is the external IP address (of users who download files) shown if you use the Apache server?

2) Are you running Apache along with HFS? (are you running both servers at the same time?)

3) What operating system are you using?

4) What is the exact brand and model of your router? (or hardware firewall)

If you answer the following questions, it would be much easier to help you (and perhaps we could find more info on how to configure your system).

I haven't tested, but Rejetto suggestion should work (since upload permissions are granted only to the subfolder).

If I'm not mistaken, the user is looking that parent's folder permissions not to be inherited to subfolders. He wants to have a public folder (with upload enabled), and a subfolder inside (of that public folder) without upload permission. Both folders without password. Perhaps this was not implemented, at least it's not automatic for subfolders when using real folders.

If you are using real folders, Rejetto's suggestion should work: since manually re-adding that specific subfolder (inside the main folder), should give you the option to configure permissions of the subfolder.

Another option is using virtual folders, where you have full control on any folder (in this case, it's not automatic, and you have to manually configure the upload permission of the subfolder).

Like Rejetto said, a screenshot of your HFS would be very helpful to guide you.

it's not clear for me if you have a real folder inside the first real folder.
Can you share a screenshot? It should be like this.

My suggestion is
1) create an account "IMPOSSIBLE" with a very hard password
2) give upload permission to IMPOSSIBLE for the subfolder

this will break permission inheritance for upload.
it depends on the firewall, and i don't know your firewall
My hfs server is behind the hardware firewall. the hfs server has the static public ip address? what i do? how configure firewall that my hfs receive the public ip of users?
