How to run crontab from remote unix server to execute a password protected asp script on another server?
Posted on 2008-10-31
I have a client hosting with GoDaddy on a windows server using classic asp. I need to run a cron job to execute an asp page on that server. I have setup the cron job on one of my shared unix servers (not hosted on GoDaddy) successfully BUT I do not want anyone else to be able to access the asp page (on GoDaddy) and accidently trigger the script. How do I protect the asp page from unwanted hits? If I password protect it, how do I access the page from cron?
Thanks in advance.
