Secure FTP connection, All browsers!!!
Posted on 2004-08-20
I need some advice.
I am building a web application in php.I work for a graphic design company. This application is a front end for a Image library. All the image files will be stored on a ftp server. I need a way to link to the files but not display ftp user/pass. What i am doing now is creating a pop-up which loads a php page which redirects to the ftp file (ftp://user:firstname.lastname@example.org:21/test.doc). This only works in some browsers:
IE- opens pop-up and save as dialog at same time, does not allow focus of pop-up until save as is clicked, and then pop-up close's (impossible to view source and see address)
netscape- opens pop-up and save as dialog, but displays link in netscape download manager.
Does anyone know of a way I can stop users from seeing the ftp user/pass?
If you need clarification on anything please ask
