How do I imbed Usrname/Psswrd Form in http page to access private ftp accounts?
I would like to be able to have an html page with an imbeded Username & Password form that I can use to access my private ftp accounts on my shared webserver. Does anyone know how I could do this? ex. I go to http://www.mydomain.com & my home page would just be a username and password field imbeded in the page to log on to my private ftp accounts. I would really appreciate if someone could explain how to do this in laymens terms. I'm currently going to ftp://mydomain.com and using "file" "login as" in Internet Explorer to access my accounts.
Also would The webhost have to do somthing on his end to make this work? I think Im on an APACHE (1.3.33 (Unix))
X-TechMedia, I was able to cut & paste your code into Frontpage, substitute domain.com with my own, save it, upload it to my web server and I can use it to log right in to my private FTP accounts from my home page. That is exactly what I've been trying to do for about a week now- thanks for the easy solution for a code iliterate GUI using newbie.
Thanks for the code however it creates another issue- when you log on to the private ftp via this code you are not in one of those windows that lets you drag and drop files on and off the web server. Do you have any suggestions?
VolkNet If you used IE i think the code above should work with drag and drop
That's the problem, it wont work- IE just displays what is in the private ftp account but wont allow drag & drop function. I think when you log in via the IE browser it gives you a special window capable of drag & drop.
Besides all this code hassle... i think you should use the program smart FTP. Its a free download and plus it looks nice.
this isnt for me it's for my clients and im trying to make file transfering as easy as possible- which would eliminate any third party option.
