    logging in to clients site...

    I'm re-designing a website for a cliet and need to access their cgi-bin to gather some files to implement into the new site. The customer has supplied a password and username to the directory.

    Now for the silly question. How do I log in to their site?

    Its probably through a magic portal then.. erm no sorry.

    Whats the domain name, one of us will find out how to access its admin panel unless it doesnt have one. In which case I would strongly suggest its FTP or browser upload(shudder), who hosts it?

    find out who hosts it, by looking up a whois, then go to their site and see if you can find some info.

    I would assume it's either telnet or SSH. On *nix run 'ssh [host]' or 'telnet [host]' .If you're on Windows, Putty will get you there either way (Google "Putty"). Assuming it's SSH (which is what it should be) then you can also transfer files with 'scp [file] [server]:/[path]/[file]' on *nix or something like WinSCP on Windows (again, Google it).

    I believe there is an SFTP plugin for Eclipse that will connect to an SSH server for file transfers.
