Hi,

I have just this line of code in an asp file:

<%
      response.redirect "https://username:password@192.168.xxx.xxx:7777/set_param?mng.reboot=1"
%>

where of course username, password and IP are properly filled.

It works fine in any browser except IE (I get this page cannot be found).

How can i get this to work in IE

I think I.E prevents you from passing a username and password in this way using a response.redirect.
A workaround is to use javascript to do it on the clientside rather than server side.
set the window.location to your url.

Microsoft removed it for security reasons... see the following:

  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/834489


If you have access to the client machines, you can set a registry key to re-enable the functionality:

How to disable the new default behavior for handling user information in HTTP or HTTPS URLs
To disable the new default behavior in Windows Explorer and Internet Explorer, create iexplore.exe and explorer.exe DWORD values in one of the following registry keys and set their value data to 0.

    * For all users of the program, set the value in the following registry key:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_HTTP_USERNAME_PASSWORD_DISABLE
    * For the current user of the program only, set the value in the following registry key:
      HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_HTTP_USERNAME_PASSWORD_DISABLE


Barring that, you're probably going to be out of luck getting working in IE.   Sorry.

<script language='javascript'>
var url = 'http://' + userid + ":" & userpassword + '@192.168.xxx.xxx:7777/set_param?mng.reboot=1';

window.location = url;
</script>

I'm afraid javascript doesn't do the trick

I have tried

<script language='javascript'>
window.location = 'https://192.168.xxx.xxx:7777/set_param?mng.reboot=1';
</script>

and it works.

but if I try

<script language='javascript'>
window.location = 'https://username:password@192.168.xxx.xxx:7777/set_param?mng.reboot=1';
</script>

then it doesn't work.

any idea?

Thanks.

No i'm afraid that was the last idea,  it seems like the answer is you can't do that unless you're prepared to hack the registry for each client as shown by clockwatcher.

There is no solution, clockwatcher gave me a workaround from the microsoft website which is the closest to what I need.
