Specifies the method to use to directly access network shares (file://
URLs), i.e. for walking and Results Authorization:
- Current: Use the current method, which is to use the
latest helper executable, supporting SMB 1, 2, and 3. Login
Info (here) is used for credentials. The
Network Share Protocols settings
(here) are in effect. No
are needed nor used (thus Network Share Mounts Root,
here, if available, is also
ignored). HTML documents with components (e.g. frames) are not fully supported
with this method: the component fetches will return errors.
However the components will generally still be walked as separate
URLs, if they reside on the same network share/tree as their parent.
- Legacy: Use the legacy method, which is to use
(mounted under Network Share Mounts Root,
here, if available)
for walking, and Results Authorization is
only supported for Windows.
Neither Login Info (here) nor
Network Share Protocols are used. For non-SMB/CIFS filesystems
(e.g. NFS), Legacy must be used.
If Proxy (here) is set, this setting has no
effect, as the proxy is used instead.
If Webinator is not licensed for file:// URLs, or is on
Windows (where UNC file paths are used), this setting has no effect
(and will not be shown).
If the platform Webinator is running on does not support the Current
method, this setting has no effect (and will not be shown),
as the Legacy method
(or UNC file path, for Windows)
When this setting is not in effect or not shown, Network Share Protocols
is also not in effect or not shown.
