Hi everyone,

Hoping those of you with more experience might be able to help with an issue my co-worker has encountered and I'm attempting to help with.

He posted a very well written question on StackOverflow with details here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/32660559/xproc-to-access-xml-data-from-ftp-with-authentication

The issue in short is this:

Calling an xproc that looks like this against an FTP server that does not require authentication works great:

<p:declare-step xmlns:p="http://www.w3.org/ns/xproc"
xmlns:c="http://www.w3.org/ns/xproc-step" version="1.0">
    <p:input port="source">
    <p:document href="ftp://ftp.hq.nasa.gov/index.html"/>
    </p:input>
    <p:output port="result"/>
    <p:identity/>
</p:declare-step>


Calling an xproc that looks like this against an FTP server requiring authentication does not work:


<p:declare-step xmlns:p="http://www.w3.org/ns/xproc"

xmlns:c="http://www.w3.org/ns/xproc-step" version="1.0">

    <p:input port="source">

        <p:document href="ftp://user:passwordd@ftp.example.org/example.xml"/>

    </p:input>

    <p:output port="result"/>

    <p:identity/>

 </p:declare-step>

Is there a different (correct) way for us to work with FTP servers that require authentication?

Would love any tips or feedback you can provide.

Thank you in advance for your help,

Zach
