View Full Version : redirection (ed2k:// protocol)

03-18-2003, 02:10 AM
Hi folks,

I want to open a new browser window that immediatly redirects to an ed2k:// link.

For those who don't know ed2k is the url format for edonkey2000 links.

Example : ed2k://|file|filename.zip|432423|f34f45gf56g2gf23f31g13g5

First number is filesize, second md4 filehash

But when I do the standard procedure via Header

("Location:",$url); exit();

it gives me an error, that the site cannot be displayed.

Is there any special handling needed for those links?

what about client side?

<META HTTP-EQUIV=Refresh CONTENT="10; URL=ed2k://asdasd">



I don't use edonkey, so I can't test it, but give it a shot.
