Lockdown File Sharing By Group / User

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


This will also prevent snapshot files from sending.
