ftp site password protection?

Q: ftp site password protection?

Is it possible to password protect individual folders on an ftp site so that not everybody that accesses the site has access to all the info on the site but only specific folders? If this is possible how do I do it?

Preferred Solution: ftp site password protection?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: ftp site password protection?

yes, sort of.
you need to set up different users, and allow different users access to different directories.

Hi folks

Just a quick question for you. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I am looking to rerelease my very simple www site soon - mainly for family comms and kids etc and I would like to include a limited restricted area, maybe a few pages etc where I could include work related material and that I could allow certain people to access when I provided them with a password etc..

I have found free password hosting companies on the web which all look good and reasonable, but is there a more pragmatic way that I could do it myself? I have heard of the htpasswrd feature but do not know how to implement it. Would anyone be willing to explain how I could utilise this please?

I have XP, FP2002 and am willing to learn - any ideas?

John

Edit - thought I should add that I have just found out that the htpasswrd file is the file that contains the user/member/password info and that I need a script to manage this - is this correct? If so, how and where do I use the script file?

How to force IE 11 to ask for saving credentials again for just one web site, after having accidentally sellect not to remember password for that particular site. Please, take into account that:


- I'm totally aware that storing credentials is not a good security practice, but in my particular case this is what I need to do.

- I know that reseting IE or similar approachs will do the job, but doing that I'll lost more tan 70 web sites credentials. I need a solution not involving loose all the web credentials stored.
- I also know that there is way to do the trick "lying" to IE using a modified but similar username, but this only works in some web sites, depending on the kind of login mechanism used. In my particulare case this trick also does not work.
- I also know that there was a registry hack for this particular problem, but this does not work with IE last versions.


Any help would be very apreciated.

Hi Guys,

This is a curious one.

I have three PCs (two desktop and one laptop) all running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (1607).

Each system has a shared partition, set up exactly the same, which has sharing set for 'everyone', with 'full control'.

Password protected sharing is turned off on each system (in "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Network and Sharing Center\Advanced sharing settings").

Each of the desktop systems can access each other's shared and also the laptop's shared partition.

The problem is when I try to use the laptop to access the shares on either of the desktop systems, I get a pop-up requester asking for a username and password. (see below - the laptop is "T400" and one of the desktops is "A960").

Any idea why this would be happening? I've checked the settings on all systems (sharing and network) and can see not reason for the password prompt appearing.

Previously I was running Win 10 Pro 64-bit (1511) on all three systems and never encountered this error.

Cheers,

Mike.

Just found out today how to put a password on any windows file or folder. It goes into a compressed zip file. Windows XP home ( 6 yrs and still learning something new all the time) Question is if its password protected, is it harder for someone to hack into it over the internet? If it needs updated once in a while, will the download enter the file/folder or will you have to open it with a password to let the update take effect? In otherwords, if I would happen to password protect my antivirus, for it to automatically update, would you have to open the folder?
 

A:Password protection

You're talking about a few different things here, ZIP files, folder encryption, and folder permissions. How about telling us what you're trying to accomplish? You obviously can't ZIP stuff and expect it to still be executable.

Your best bet is to just Google it... Or sift through Tucows.com to see if shareware or freeware for that exists.

XP Pro has ESF builtin (Encrypting File System), you could (provided you have Xp Pro and your partition is NTFS) view the file properties and enable the encryption...sry dont remember exact name. That way only your local profile could open that file. Problem is if you leave your pc logging on, or unlocked anyone could open, edit the file.

Depends who you want to protect these files from. If others are signing in to your account, then even encrypted files will be accessible to them.

If you want to protect files within your account, put them in a zip file, then click the zip file so the contents are shown, go to File and Add Password.

Hi,sorry if this seems like a silly question, but I was just a bit concerned about this.

My Laptop recently had to be repaired, and when send to the repair centre by mail, I forgot to disable my password protection in BIOS and in Windows. I do this for security reasons. So that nobody can get my data if my laptop gets stolen, they will just have to reformat, I thought.

However, when my laptop came back from the repair centre, both the BIOS password and the Windows password had both been disabled. I didn't think that that was easy to do, so I was confident of the security. Now I just feel no point to password protect it, if it can so easily be bypassed/overidden/cracked/WHATEVER!

Am I being too paranoid, or should I not have relied on this security anyway?

P.S. I am running Win XP, and thanks for any replies in advance.
 

A:Password Protection

Wow...there are ways to bypass the BIOS password,but it's very hard.If you sent it to a professional repair center,than they obviously knew how to do it.I wouldn't worry,an average computer user couldn't get past the BIOS password.

pros are its the best archiving tool imo, and there is no spyware or nag screens like other free software.

I'm not sure about password protected files--they would be easily seen with recovery software I think. If you want to really protect them anywhere, anytime, encryption is the way to go and TrueCrypt would serve that purpose.

If its just to prevent the casual prying eye from gaining access though you could create an archive of the folder and password protect that. Maybe someone knows of a program that doesn't require that extra step though...
