Walk directory structures, download files, restrict users to certain folders, hide files and directories.

Now we get into the good stuff. This example uses a file streaming component to give a more full-featured experience.

    Security features include a "ceiling" to keep users within the desired directory structure, as well as a file size limit (set by a property in SA File-Up, or your preferred upload component).

Try it here.     Download it here (~8kb).


6/28/2002: Another security hole patched
    A path check was missing from docOpen.asp, letting users climb into other folders accessible to the anonymous web user account; this has now been corrected (thanks, Gluck, for bringing this to my attention).

3/16/2002: Security hole patched
    In previous versions, users could climb above the administrator-defined "ceiling" by using the "../" switch in the URL. This is now precluded by an additional security check.

12/31/2001: v1.3 -- Filtering capability
    Keep crucial files away from prying eyes; filter by file extension with a simple delimited list. Filter by inclusion (hide specific files) or exclusion (hide all but specific files).
    Directory filtering by leading character is supported as well.

9/12/2000: The source code is here!
    Simply extract the zip file into the desired folder under your web root -- remembering to check the "Use Folder Names" option -- and change the necessary variables at the top of browser.asp. Then start browsing! Remember if you're going to use the Delete function that you should be *very* careful with the ceiling you give your users.
    Stay tuned for future enhancements...

Without knowing more, it's hard to say what the problem is. Have you turned of "Friendly Error Messages" in Internet Explorer so you can see the real error message?
