• ftp downloading 00index,html

    From Fireball@VERT/FBEX to all on Thursday, February 14, 2019 05:01:31
    I've notices that since 3.17 has become release, for those BBSes still running the traditional web interface with ftp, it downloads the 00index.html instead of displaying it. This even happens on vert. Is this working as intended now?

    seems to be working fine over here on SESTAR... i just tested over at vert, too, and it worked fine there as well... perhaps it is a browser problem? which
    browser are you using?

    I'm not sure exactly what the fix is, but for me that has been happening to me for a couple of years, long before 3.17 came out. It seems to depend on the browser and machine (even with the same browser, I've noticed it might do that on one machine but not another).

    It's a browser's decision to render the .html page served via ftp or not. Apparently some browser (e.g. Chrome) are moving away from rendering content served via ftp.

    Off on a bit of a tangent, I remember a few years ago when that crazy dude was uploading his HyperMegaTurbo OS website to various Synchronet boards to get free distributed web hosting via their FTP servers. A good case for locking down your uploads directory to some extent.

    generally speaking, your web browser automatically sends login info... check your logs and see what it used for your attempt ;)

    I had a guy call my BBS in the 90s looking for beta testers for his new cool OS he'd written from scratch - he'd called it NS-DMS, even had some acronym for it, and it was readily apparent that his coding shops were limited to hex-editing binaries.

    since both of them took other people's stuff and put their name on it, i think that would be possible.

    Interesting, so I already changed it here:
    Networks->QWK Packet Networks->Default Tagline

    Since I get this via qwk. However, it is still here:

    Networks->FidoNet EchoMail and Netmail->Default Origin Line

    Although I do not have a fidonet node anymore.

    Apparently Append Tag/Origin Line prefers Origin over Tag?
