Instant Payment Notification URL
Posted 30 November 2002 - 01:19 AM
I can't set a URL with authentication information as an IPN URL. The URL looks like http://user:password...mysite.com/path and when I save it in my profile a warning message appears telling me that the URL can't be saved.
So, why this kind of URL can't be used as an IPN URL ? I need it to contain some authentication information. Could the system support it ?
Thanks in advance.

You could try a %40 in replace of the @ symbol?

The at-sign should not be encoded in the URL form user:firstname.lastname@example.org/path, otherwise it is not interpreted as the separator between authentication information and host name (IE reports a syntax error when '@' is replaced with its URL-encoded equivalent code '%40').
Any other idea about specifying an IPN URL that contains authentication information ?
