Help please!!-FTP File download through another web server.
simplified scenerio: ftp server & web server are connected to a switch. Clients cannot access the ftp servers, but can connect to the web server (eg - index.html), webserver has to provide a file by fetching it from the ftp server.
I downloaded and installed Xerver+PHP. Please advice how to do the scriptings.
thanks for the reply,
The whole system is on one network- just 1 switch & all have static IPs. Client PC is connected through a router into this switch. I did a PHP script FTP_get(), but that downloads the file from ftp server into the web server.(what I want is to download into the client PC. )
I cannot find PHP scripts which runs at web-server that fetches file from FTP server and downloads it into client PC.
Any advice would be highly appreciated.
[I succesfully tried FTPUSE software to map the ftp sites into drive letters and then everthing is fine. But I wish to use PHP, if possible, to do this job, instead of FTPUSE s/w]
thanks and regards
I do not understand your problem. The users are responsible for initiating a download. It seems to me that you need to ask yourself why the files are hosted on the ftp server in the first place??? But I'm no server guru.
