  1. Failure sending mail

    Hello

    I am trialing FileAudit on our file server. When trying to set the E-mail settings for the audit alerts, I keep getting an error message that says:

    Failure sending mail.
    Unable to connect to the remote server
    A connection attempt failed because the connected part did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.

    I have checked and ensured that the SMTP port (25) is open on our exchange server. Port 465 is also open for SSL but that fails as well.

    I've tried with no authentication, my…

    • IP address naming

      I am evaluating and doing demo for FileAudit for some clients of me. And so far it looks good :)

      But I could include one extra feature, it would be this:

      1. Include the ability to predefine names for IP ranges/subnets.
      2. Include the name of the subnet/IP Range in the console and in reports.

      The reason for this, is that for auditors who does not have a deep technical knowledge, it is not always easy to understand from where the user accessing a file is coming from.

      Assume that you have different client zones (Open, Restricted, Top Secret). The…

      • Be alerted when "path + FileName " get too long for windows file system

        Sometimes in folder tree you have sub, sub, sub... folders and it works nice but If you rename 1st level or 2nd level folder name for example and that the new name is more long you could obtain as aresult a too long complete path.

        But the end user is not aware of this and windows don't deny this. It only send error dialog box about too long path for file system when you try acces end sub level.

        That's why it would be great if FileAudit could check this out and send an alert in order to correct this…

              • DNS resolution for IP address

                Hi is a good think to know the IP address of the computer used by a User, but will be much better is this IP was resolved to DNS name, personaly I use 3letters from the name and 3 letters from the surname, so it will be more easy to identify the computer instead of coping the IP and open a terminal then make dnslookup to identify the IP

                    • I would like to limit the amount of subfolders its fileaudit is monitoring

                      Can I limit the amount of subfolders FileAudit is monitoring?

                      For example, \\projects\year\project number -stop

                      We would specifically be using this software to only monitor people who drag and drop a folder accidently into another location. Our hope is to identify the user(s) and help train them better.

                      Right not will monitor everything and our information will be lost in the data. As you can imagine on a project fileserver lots of changes will be made every day.

                                    It seems very useful if i can choose a statistic from just one share by dropdown menu or something like that. Now i get a statistic from all shares.

                                      • How to completely reset NTFS audit ACL?

                                        On one server, all accesses to the volume are audited, regardless what I configure in FileAudit.

                                        I guess this is from previous tests with the NTFS audit ACLs.
                                        Already tried removing all entries in the audit properties on the volume and various folders, but no success.

                                        Is there a definitive way to completely disable NTFS auditing on the whole volume so I can start from scratch?

                                        • How do I remove from auditing a server that no longer exists?

                                          I have a server that crashed. Rather than be rebuilt its data was moved to a different server. How do I remove the auditing in FileAudit interface for that server? Error shown in attached screen capture.

                                          Regards..
                                          Mark
