i'm new to nomad and am investigating the use of this file manager with winflector for client-to-server-and-vice-versa file transfers (the winflector product allows remote access only to applications "registered" with the winflector server [so it's more restrictive than a remote desktop app which is what we prefer]; for nomad, winflector can map client's  file system on the server-side, making client-to-server-and-vice-versa file transfers possible [for details, see  for example, and also pages 9-10 of the user manual,,  or

i would like to know how i can hide access to the command prompt (i've unchecked what i thought were the associated command prompt plugins in Tools>Options) but a user can still access the command prompt.  i want to hide it for security reasons (maybe a winflector user can use the command prompt to do naughty stuff?)

thank you for any help or tips!

After disabling CmdPromptTabPlugin in options you need to restart Nomad. Also, you can delete "Plugind\CmdPromptTabPlugin.dll" file to remove that functionality completely.

FYI access to a command prompt does not somehow escalate a user's privileges. User has same access as in the file manager. (A command prompt is a program, not a security boundary.)
