4console plugin no longer available

Hi. It looks like 4console plugin won't download in firefox, chrome or edge.

Fortunately, I was able to use curl to get it.

Perhaps it would be better to have the link changed to use http or https protocol rather than ftp?
 
If only there were some kind of a scriptable file-management program which could do FTP downloads....

It would be nice if TCC could do that.

Maybe something like;
Code:
iftp ftp://vefatica.net/4plugins/X64

Code:
E:\Utils>dir "ftp:*.*" 

 Directory of  ftp://vefatica.net/4plugins/X64/*.*

Your favorite command interpreter will do it for you, FTP.EXE too!

Code:
copy "ftp://vefatica.net/4plugins/x64/4console64.zip"

Firefox hasn't done FTP for a few years. I'd bet it has also been a long time for the others.

If HTTP or HTTPS were easy, I'd do it. I rather like using my 25+ year-old Serv-U but I don't think it will do either of those protocols. I thought Windows had a built-in web server (IIS, W3..., or something like that) but I can't find it. If it's there I might try it. Does anyone know about that?

Enable Internet Information Services.

Hmmm! It's partially installed. I did (once) get the FTP server working (quite a chore). Even after expanding everything I don't see an opportunity to install/turn on the web server.

Apparently I also (once) set up the web server. But I have no idea how to turn it on. I can't find a service to simply start.

Whew! That was a chore! With vefatica.net - /anonymous/4plugins/ I can get here (below). I'm curious whether it works from the outside world and, if it does, how much hassle is caused by the connection now being secure. Perhaps someone will try it. At the moment, I can't enable HTTPS because Serv-U uses it for its config/admin connection.

Obviously, it works from outside because Amazon is bugging me. And someone from here must have tried it. It's interesting what information is available at the server including a link to this thread!. From the server's log:

Code:
2023-07-02 22:08:25 192.168.1.151 GET /anonymous/4plugins - 80 - 209.171.85.31 Mozilla/5.0+(Windows+NT+10.0;

This URL does not work;
Code:
http://vefatica.net/anonymous/4plugins

This URL works;
Code:

Yup. It should also work if you add "anonymous". Both / and /anonymous point to d:\anonymous\4plugins\X64\ (which is why it fails if you tack on "4plugins"). I'll tidy it up a bit if I decide to keep the server running.
