Hi there,
Can you help me find the settings to achieve the following?

1. allow download of all files that are directly linked to from the project site, BUT do not download files linked to from html files found on other sites. In other words, allow a download depth of only 1 for external sites.

2. exclude download of all exe files (or any user defined file)

3. exclude download of all files larger than 1MB

Thanks for the help

This is easy. Use the Project Properties dialog:
1. URL Filters - Server
2. File Filters - User Defined - add .exe or another extension and uncheck it.
3. File Filters categories - size filters.

Best regards,

Many thanks for the help Oleg.

> 1. URL Filters - Server
** Can I set it to only download images from external servers, but not their HTML files? Basically depth of 1 on other external servers, but apply filters to external files.

** Thanks!


> 3. File Filters categories - size filters.
** Is there a global setting for size filters? Or set individually for each category?

1. Sure - File Filters - Images - use the Location box.
2. Individually only.

Oleg.
