Hi I have a asp page an I want to redirect it to a FTP site.

Now I use:

ftp://user:pwd@ftp.myftpsite.com

But some browser show user and pwd in the url.

I want to hide its. I would like to set the user and pwd for the session and then redirecf only to ftp://ftp.myftpsite.com

Is that posible?, How can I get it? Any other way?

thanks

No.  It is not possible.  If you include the userid and password in the URL then it will be visible, if not on mouse over then it is still visible when you view the source HTML code.

There is no other way that I can think of to provide authentication information to an FTP site via a web site.
