    Is there a way to login to restricted folders within using the password promt that pops up? I know that for ftp's with IE, you can do ftp://usernameassword@serverort/dir/

    Can you do somethign similar for http?

    That works, but many new browsers block links in that form because it's commonly used for URL spoofing.

    Huh? I thought the only URL spoofing bug was with IE with the NUL byte or something... and it doesn't work anymore.

    Anyway, to answer joncom11, yes, with PHP with Apache(Apache only) you use a header() to send 'WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="My Realm"', and get those variables using PHP_AUTH_USER & PHP_AUTH_PW.
