Login authentication protocol
« on: September 25, 2010, 11:54:22 AM »
Hi!

First of all accept my apologise if the problem I'm writing about is obvious. I'm beginner in html/web technology.

I'm trying to write small program that will be used to synchronize local folders on client with corresponding folders on server. The program should automatically send required data for server to verify user.

I've secured access to my folders on server with Login/Password. The problem is that I don't know which verification protocol hfs use. I couldn't find any information about it on forum.

Could you help me how programatically send Login/Password to serwer?

With best regards!

HFS uses standard http authentication.
How you can use it, it depends on the language (and libraries) you are using.
If you are specifying urls in the form http://address
then you can try http://user:password@address
some systems allow this.
