    windoze protected files threw mozilla?

    i work on a webpage that is running off a wink2k server. the MYsql Admin tools i use are protected by the server itself. eg: a box pops up asking for a username and password. this only seems to work if im using Internet Explorer though. i just switched to linux and mozilla netscape and the other crappy browsers it has dont support that type of authenticatoin. i was wondering if anybody know of a way to loggin to this type of server not using IE.

    thanks!

    What kind of authentication is it exactly?

    Maybe you could post a link?

    I appears to be HTTP authentication, but I'm not sure why it doesn't work for Mozilla (I'm using Phoenix).

    I tried other sites that use HTTP authentication and they all have the user/password prompt.

    Sorry I can't help you. I'll ask an advisor to move this into the "Configuring your server" forum instead - you should get better help there.

    Here's the text on the error page I got using mozilla 1.3 ..

    -- START ERROR PAGE TEXT --
    You are not authorized to view this page
    You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials you supplied.

    Please try the following:

    * Click the Refresh button to try again with different credentials.
    * If you believe you should be able to view this directory or page, please contact the Web site administrator by using the e-mail address or phone number listed on the www.f8klan.com home page.

    HTTP 401.2 - Unauthorized: Logon failed due to server configuration
    Internet Information Services

    Technical Information (for support personnel)

    * Background:
    This is usually caused by a server-side script not sending the proper WWW-Authenticate header field. Using Active Server Pages scripting this is done by using the AddHeader method of the Response object to request that the client use a certain authentication method to access the resource.

    * More information:
    Microsoft Support

    -- END ERROR PAGE TEXT --


    You should let your web host support know about this.
    They probably just need to figure out which headers
    to send that will work with all or most browsers.

    well ya see thats the thing. I am running that webserver. as a matter of fact its sitting right next to me. the problem is i am running mysql admin controls which are made up of a bunch of php scripts so they only way they work is threw the browser. i wouldnt want to leave that just open for anybody to use cus they could mess up my database.

    its also a win2k server.

    mabey i should ask... whats the best way to protect my files on a win2k server and still use mozilla to use them?

    you should enter the username and the password and the name of the network and you shold gain access.

    there should be some services that you can use to make both linux and windows talk.
    i love php

    The problem is that you are prompting for a Windows NT login instead of a specific login for a webpage. Not sure how you would work around this though. I would suspect that Mozilla doesn't have access to Windows Networking login routines.


    You could try submitting a bug to Bugzilla and see what they say.

    yea im gona do that then. im surprised its hasent been dealt with yet.. that type of file protection is like the only one the operating system offers. well as for as thing that resembel httpaccess or whatever. it really works well if your using IE though.
