I'm a beginner... I want to make a simple page with no more than a Link to a file on a FTP Server (not the same one there the page is hosted) but in order for me to get the file I need to login (username and password)

How can I work that out??

I mean, I tried the <a href> thing... but it doesn't work...
e.g.
<a href="ftp://ftp.server.com/file.ext">Link to file</a>

I also tried

<a href="ftp://Username:Password@ftp.server.com/file.ext">Link to file</a>

With no luck..

One could think, why not do it in the same server where the page is... the thing is that I'm using Geocities and it won't let me upload files larger than 5MB ... THe file I need is about 15MB. I hope there is a way to do this without having to pay hehe

Hi e_pech,

This is what I would sugguest. Pull the file from its current host.

Upload it to one of the MANY file hosting providers on the web. E.g.

Mediafire
Rapidshare
sendspace
megaupload

ect..

It's free and should solve your problem.

Regards.
