This page displays all online sessions' activities. From here, an overall picture of the current activity on the domain can be seen. In addition, individual sessions can be viewed including their current status, connection state, and transfer information.

 

To view the detailed information on a specific session, just double click the session.

Depending upon the type of connection made by that session(e.g., FTP, HTTP, or SFTP), certain additional functions are available.

Kick

Any type of session can be kicked at any time by clicking the "Kick" button. Clicking the button brings up another dialog with additional options for how the disconnect should be performed. There are 3 types of disconnect options available:

 

Disconnect - Immediately disconnects the session. Another session can be immediately established by the disconnected client. This is also known as "kicking" the user.

Disconnect and ban IP - Immediately disconnects the session and bans their IP address for the specified number of minutes, preventing them from immediately reconnecting.

Disconnect and block IP permanently - Immediately disconnects the session and adds a deny IP access rule for their IP address, preventing them from ever reconnecting from the same IP address.

 

In addition to disconnecting the session, the user account in use by the session can also be disabled by checking the box labeled Disable user account.

 

If the current session is using the FTP protocol, a message can be sent to the user before disconnecting them by typing it in the box labeled "Message to user. This option is not available for HTTP or SFTP sessions as neither protocol defines a method for chatting with users.

 

Kick All

Immediately disconnects all sessions. But another session can be immediately established by the disconnected client.

When a message is received from the session, it is automatically displayed here.

 

NOTE: Only FTP sessions support chatting with system administrators. The command used to send a message to the server is SITE MSG.
