Set Script and Executable Access
When users attempt to access an Active Server Pages (ASP) file or other script file, the server usually responds by processing the script and displaying the results to the user. If a user is developing the server scripts remotely, the client must access the source of the file. Alternatively, the administrator may need to increase security on the server by limiting where scripts and executables can be run on the server. When you grant script access or enable scripts to run, you allow all connected users to view the source of the scripts and to run the scripts.
Note Source access must be enabled to access properties on a script file using HTTP.
To set script and executable access:
Tip Once source access is granted, if a client application requires access to the source of a script instead of the result of the script's execution, the client application must send the HTTP get command with the "translate: f" header included. This header indicates to the server to not run the script but to return the source.
