    but i can not find in your tutorial the following scenario:
    i would like to put a file on my server/ a folder on my site, for my client to download a file from, with a password, but without fetch.
    i had clients give me internet address and when i clicked on them in their email, i immediately saw how it asked for a password and started downloading to my desktop.
    without that i even opened fetch or similar software....
    it just started automatically downloading after that link launched safari .
    really cool !......
    but how do i do this???--does fetch actually have anything to do with this?
    i wanna make it that simple for my clients to get files from me like this, with just a weblink....sent to them by email..

    While Fetch can help you upload the files and folders to a web server, setting up passwords for different clients to download files from the server is not something Fetch can help you with, sorry - that's something that must be set up on the server using other tools. You should talk to your hosting provider or server administrator about how you might accomplish this.
