There is a Microsoft Office bug (2019105) that will attempt WebDAV windows authentication from non WebDAV links. To work around this bug the server can specify the "Content-Disposition" header as an "attachment" (requesting the browser save the file instead of opening it). Microsoft Internet Explorer will still ask if you want to open the file but will not attempt WebDAV. When making links with ShowItemData.po use the "download" in place of the "filename" parameter. For example:




This code can be added to a re-writer to select no manager by default
How to make "Reports to" default to nothing or a selected user instead of the current user:

if(url.indexOf("UserDetails.po")>-1 && url.indexOf("user=")<0){

If someone tries to brute force passwords their IP will be added to the blacklist.

  • The IP will be un-listed after 12 hours.
  • The default threshold for authentication failure rate is 20 per minute.
  • The default (BlackList.PerMinuteThreshold = 20) can be changed in the intranet.conf.
  • Hosted clients can disable blacklisting in the settings.
  • One NATed IPv4 user can get many users blacklisted due to shared IP. IPv6 or internal monitoring are the only way to prevent that without disabling blacklisting.


Stronger SSL Encryption can be achieved by doing the following:

  • Upgrade your operating system
  • Upgrade Java
  • Upgrade Noodle
  • Get Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files for JDK/JRE 8
  • Limit Ciphers
    • multiserver.conf
  • Limit Protocols
    • multiserver.conf
      • Connection.CM_1.Protocols[] = TLSv1.2
  • Add a CAA record to your DNS.

The available ciphers and protocols are listed on http://DOMAIN.TLD/Check.po?admin=now
