We have an FTP site with a single username/password that we provide to people as they need it. We are unable to create a new username/password for every person that might need to access the site, but it cannot be open to anyone.
What we want to do is password protect file folders on the site. We would create a new folder, add data to it, password protect the folder, and notify the person that their data is ready for pick up, providing them with the password. They would then go to the site using our username/password, see the appropriate folder with their name on it, and be prompted for a password when they try to open it. Then, they will use the password we provide to them to open the folder and download the data, and we would delete the folder within an appropriate amount of time.
We looked at "folder lock", but it is used on PCs, not servers, and it requires that the user downloading the data have the software as well.
Does anyone know how we could accomplish this or something similar?
