1AT - Disable SSH cipher on MFT embedded SFTP

After a penetration test we have been asked to limit the ciphers and macs allowed for SFTP connection to our MFT instance.

We can easily to this at system level putting there 2 lines in sshd_config

ciphers aes128-ctr,aes192-ctr,aes256-ctr
macs hmac-sha1,,hmac-sha2-256,hmac-sha2-512,hmac-ripemd160,

but this does not seems to affect MFT embedded SFTP. How can we change this for the embedded SFTP server?
