Authenticate windows folder security with ASP?

Discussion in 'ASP General' started by Chad Richardson, Sep 4, 2007.

  1. I have created an appln in ASP to upload some files. and
    through my appln when i click the link i can view them.
    but if i know the path where the files are stored, i can
    just type in the url in my browser and still open the
    file. i want to avoid other people from viewing these
    files and only want them to open through my appln.
    How can this be achieved? Also this application is hosted
    with a hosting company on a shared server...so not sure if there
    are limitations as to the solution in that environment.

    Thanks,
    Chad
