on the first question, I would like to be able to ban an IP address automatically and permanently if they try to access the server with a certain user account. Not based on hammering just solely on trying to access based on certain names. "Administrator" for example, I do not have an account setup as "Administrator" but I do get random IPs trying to login with that name all the time.
the second question, when you set a password for a user it only shows a bunch of dots. I would like to be able to show the password (unmask) so that when someone forgets their password to my server I can look in their account to get it rather than keeping a separate file with passwords.
and the third question, In the last version of WinFTP you were able to set a home directory for a group account. When you add a user to a group there was a check box that said "use group dir" which used the group home directory so that you didn't have to specify one for every user. I really miss this functionality.
Thank you for your time
