I sometimes have reason to retrieve files from our production server but want to be sure I do not make changes at the time.

It's impractical for me to create a user with read-only privilege, but it would be nice to have a client that would restrict operation to only read-type operations.

For example, a "Read Only" mode that can be associated with connecting a certain server where commands that would cause changes on the remote side are either not accepted, or are at least are met with a "Are you sure? You're in read-only mode." type of confirmation prompt.

Thank you

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

We have prompts when overwriting files per default for both rename and upload. Really restricting access is not technically feasible for a client and you can never be sure the client will not eventually write anyway therefore it is much safer to have a user with restricted permissions on the server.
