Hi
  Could someone advice me how I could implement a
download of a zip file from a ftp server after the user
has clicked on a link in a web page.

ex : user clicks on the link, ftp.downloads.myzip.zip

and it will display the regular file download dialog box.
When user selects the option 'Save this file to disk' and clicks OK it will save it to the selected location.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanx

Dylan

Hi Mohan

   I want to implement a download from a browser (web page)
link. The file resides in a ftp server. The link points to
the file in the server.
   Once clicked on the link it should display the regular download dialog box and then the percentage downloaded.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I have a related issue with FTP download of a .ZIP file from a web site.
On clicking the Download button, I receive, what I believe is a JavaScript error indicating "%Interfact not supported" related to an Open.Window() call.  I've modified Internet Options Security and Advanced settings that might apply -- and -- since I only started having issues since SP2 was installed I found several references to Tech Knowledge articles on various support sites indicating ties to new Registry entries for Feature Control that I've set to permit access : Local Machine Lockdown, Protocol Lockdown, Object Caching.  The only one that I've not changed here is the one for Restrict_FileDownload, which would seem to be the most likely choice.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks,
