This tutorial provides instruction for enabling Time-based One-Time Passwords (TOTP) for users as well as instructions for logging in using an authenticator app.
Time-based One-Time Passwords provide GoAnywhere MFT users the ability to use Google Authenticator or other authenticator apps to generate a one-time password to log in to the Admin and Web Client interfaces. When enabled, the login page will display a QR code that the user must scan with the Google Authenticator app on a mobile device. Once scanned, GoAnywhere stores the user's secret key on their profile. Each subsequent time the user logs in, they must provide a new one-time use password to GoAnywhere using the authenticator application.
Time-based One-Time passwords must first be enabled as a login method. Login methods are managed on the Login Settings page of the GoAnywhere MFT admin client.
Each individual Web User must be configured to use TOTP authentication. Follow the instructions below to enable a Web User.
You can enable this on a Web User Template, which ensures all new Web Users that are created using the template will have this enabled by default.
As with Web Users, Admin Users must be individually configured to use TOTP authentication. Follow the instructions below to configure an Admin User.
You can enable this on an Admin User Template, which ensures all new Admin Users that are created using the template will have this enabled by default.
Utilizing an authenticator app to log into GoAnywhere is simple.
If this is the first time logging in to the Admin or Web Client with TOTP enabled, you will need to register the app by scanning the QR code presented on the login screen.
Each subsequent login will require a freshly generated verification code from your authenticator app.
