    Hi, I am using CustomFileSystemProvider to display the files from a shared drive on our intranet website. However, when I set the network paths in the mappings file, my understanding is that it uses the credentials of the logged in user (I have Windows authentication set up for this site). But we would like to take away the permissions that individual users have on the shared network drive and use the RadFileExplorer with a proxy user account. How do I set it up to use the proxy user?

    Hi Saritha,

    RdaFileExplorer runs under the account associated with the ApplicationPool set to the application. This means that you can change the permission for the whole application, and cannot set specific permission for the ContentProvider. In your case you can expose the shared drive through FTP with a specific permissions (setup authentication) and then use the FTPContentProvider (it accepts credentials for the FTP server) in order to read and write to the shared drive (through FTP server).

    All the best,
