Can someone help me figure out how to correctly validate a FTP URL, I Have tried several different time with no luck........ I have also search this form and did not find anything on the subject. The only thing I found was about validate URL, Which is not working with ftp address.... I'm having trouble trying to write a valid expression for checking ftp. My script uses PHP so I've also tried to write a function to add to smarty but with no luck Rolling Eyes

an ftp link (can) contain(s):

protocol (string)
username (string)
:
password (string)
@
hostname or ip (string)
location on the server (string)

ftp://foo:bar@foo.com
ftp://foo:bar@foo.com/bar/foo
ftp://foo@foo.com/bar/foo
ftp://foo.com/bar/foo
ftp://foo.com

So check for ftp://, :, @ and /. That'll give you a good idea of what to do and where to connect to.

FYI Internet Explorer 7 seems to ignore passing a username and password through an anchor tag

How can I ftp between 2 computers connected through a Lan Hub? I have a notebook and a desktop and instead of constantly having to relly on a memory stick to transfer files and info from one to the other, I would like to know if I can use FTP instead.

Something tells me you already know the answer...

If not, then start a FTP server on one side and a FTP client on the other side.
