Hi Raven, excuse for my bad english....i have a problem after the upgrade NukeSentinel 2.4.2pl9 with Enhanced Downloads Module v.1.7. If i sumbit a new download, when i click the submit botton i'm redirect to a error 406 page...Not acceptable error from the server. The serveur has received one demanded not permissible or contrary to the policy. This error can be caused from one situated attempt of hacking of or from one demanded HTTP containing of the errors. Why this? I must configure anything?
Tnx for response

what is the name of the file? A lot of upload errors are caused by special characters like () "" '' , !*% and other things like that, if it has any characters other a-z and 1-9 in it you may try to rename the file.

Otherwise I am sure one of the admins here will come by and have some other ideas

Is the link to the download to a file which is on the same server as your site?

I believe this is the same problem with just about the same scenario:
Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

no real workaround as raven states but nsn downloads do not do this in the same manner.

Yes, thats why I asked if the url was to another site.
Sentinel see's 'http' appearing twice as a cross site scripting attack which is one of the most common forms of attack and certainly has been the case recently on a large number of sites, in particular the recent spate of phpbb_root_path attacks.

For the record, the reason why it isn't a problem for me with NSN GR Downloads is because it is tweaked so that all my links use the server root path to link to the file instead of a url and I only link to d/l's that are on my server.

I use nsn downloads and under no circumstances do I ever see mysite.com/something?=http.....

Thus the reason I offered.

darklord, have you tried the scenario of a "normal user" submitting a new download and the download is an external link. Then, the admin reviews the submitted download and tries to "test the link" function? I wonder if you would see the Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! then?

I just tried it and nope.

Also if I'm not mistakin, it uses a variable to call on the download through the database, no GET in it at all, and perhaps I'm mistakin but doesnt it need the GET function to call on a variable defined in the url? Just a thought.

Ok, good to know. Was wondering if that scenario was also present in NSN Downloads. Thanks for checking.

:clap:

montego, yes of course with the scenario of a normal user when i submitted the download and tries to test the link the response is "url is invalid" but in the ftp server there is the file and the andress is right!

Excellent news!
Did you check that when you are only logged in as a normal user, clicking the link in the downloads section does not produce any errors?

Excelent news then. I just wanted to check there was not something else that might happen if you were not logged in as an admin. It's great you found a work around.
