Configuring remote file transfer

Parallels RAS provides end users with the ability to transfer files remotely to and from a remote server.

Note: At the time of this writing, file transfer is supported in Parallels Web Client and Parallels Client for Chrome only. Bidirectional file transfer is supported in Parallels Web Client only. In Parallels Client for Chrome, you can only enable or disable file transfer.

To make the remote file transfer functionality flexible, Parallels RAS allows you to configure it on the following three levels:

File transfer settings that you configure on each level take precedence in the order listed above. For example, if you enable file transfer on a User Portal, but disable it on an RD Session Host, file transfer will be disabled for all users who connect to the given RD Session Host through the given User Portal. As another example, you can enable file transfer on an RD Session Host and then disable it for a particular Client policy (or an User Portal). This way you can control which clients can use file transfer and which cannot.

Read the subsequent sections to learn how to configure file transfer on each level.
