Is there a better way to stream one stream into another? Maybe a smaller buffer, like 1024 bytes at a time, is more efficient for large files?

Creating Link To File On Web Server And Offer User To Download

Sep 6, 2011

I ran across some legacy code which creates a link to a file on the web server and offers the user a link to download the file.

Machine name:

Full url path to the directory containing the file to download: [URL]

Target file name:

The code does the following to create a link to 'downloadable.txt'
server.machinename.tostring & ".. argetdownloadable.txt"

Which results in:
"MYSERVER.. argetdownloadable.txt"

That link appears on the page as:
<a href="MYSERVER.. arget.downloadable.txt">download this file</a>

In IE 7, mousing over the link shows the full URL "[URL]" in the status bar. And it works fine for downloading the file in IE 7 (left or right-click). Firefox shows "[URL]" in the status bar and downloading the file isn't as straight forward. FF actually tries to change the file name to include the server name and target directory in the file name.

I've tried other methods like WebClient.DownloadFile() and had no success. This works, but I'm unfamiliar with the ".." and curious about how it works. I understand that ".." typically means go up one directory. My question was really more in the line of "how does that get interpreted in the browser to sort out the path?"

Creating Download Link To A File On A File Server

Oct 11, 2011

I'm looking for a way to (easily, by preference ;)) create a download link to a file on a separate file server.The situation is as follows: the application I'm developing ( 2.0 in but I have a similar issue in c#, either solution works for me) will be run internally for a company.As is good practice, the file storage and web application are on two separate servers.I basically need to be able to create a download link to a file, the only available URL i have to access the file is servernamefolder1folder2folder3file.txt (can be any sort of file)[code]Which doesn't work for obvious reasons. It used to be set up to write that file to the application path itself and that worked perfectly, but it isn't good practice and that's why I'm changing it (or trying to).I read solutions about creating a download page and then having a table in your DB which holds the links and returns the proper web URL for download but the time constraint I am faced with unfortunately doesn't allow me to develop that.

Assuming I can provide a string with the full filepath to the file like the above, what is the easiest way to just create a link that, when clicked, downloads the document? I have 0 admin rights in this environment. That really isn't helping me. Let's assume I am given the correct link like above and have the appropriate file access rights and such.The above example does work in IE, but not in Firefox and Chrome. IE converts it to a file://servername/... link which does what it's supposed to, but FF and Chrome both actively decided that this is unsafe and have disabled it from their browsers.

Download Folder From FTP Server?

Jun 21, 2010

my problem is that the server (accessed through filezilla) wont allow .exe extensions to be uploaded as a result i have added a .new to the end and that allows it to be uploaded. Thus when i download it i simply remove the .file from the end.That's sorted but my auto updater needs to download folders as well. This is a problem as i cannot add a .file to a folder as it does not govern the filetype. I though of using .zip files but i cannot find an program in windows that can extract it (e.g. through CMD, or if you right click a .zip file in Win7/Vista you get the option to "extract all" i cannot find the root of this application). Also if i try to use a external file extractor i cannot be sure that the remote PC has the same program (e.g. 7zip, winrar, etc..)

I have tried many things, used some examples on MSDN, googled a lot, but i can't find the code that i'm looking for... I also use a DLL of someone that i've imported into my project. I don't know if that harms my part of being unable to log in.

I have ZERO experience with FTP servers or Network Credentials, i've learned the little things about it on google.
