    Default Traffic redirect to download payload not functioning properly!

    *Hopefully I won't get a warning again for "posting in wrong forum"*


    Hey guys, so I'm trying to host a custom payload on a webserver using apache.. I'm using the default "index.html" and put in <a href="/var/www/payload.exe" target="_blank"><Download>

    When I forward traffic to that page, I click the link and it goes to a page that says "The requested URL /var/www/payload.exe was not found on this server. " That's the 1st problem
    When I try "save target as" it automatically wants to save it as a htm file..Is there an error in my html coding or is it something else? Ideally, I'd like to make it so all you have to do is click on the link and it downloads the file..It'd be better if I could make it auto-download but I realize that involves some php coding (which im not fluent w/)..Help would be appreciated in fixing this problem..

    Thanks in advance

    Yes there is an error in your HTML. You've failed to understand how the Apache server is configured and how that relates to the way your href should be defined.

    If index.html is in /var/www I highly doubt that you're accessing it as http://localhost/var/www/index.html, I'm guessing you access it as http://localhost/ or http://localhost/index.html ...... which should lead you to the understanding that /payload.exe is also in the same place, etc, etc.

    BTW: There is no big red "H4X0R 1T n0wz!" button, it'd be really smart of you to learn the basics before going and serving up exploit payloads without actually understanding some basics of how things work. Failing that you're likely going to waste someone's (or your own) money/time/effort cleaning up something you futzed

    PS: Yes, you posted to the wrong area, this isn't an Expert topic or issue.
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    More information than what was necessary, but alright thanks for the input.
