5.2. Fix UCONN Dropbox URLS for External Access

If you get a Dropbox URL that looks like the one below and starts with https://vpn.uconn.edu/... Then it will be inaccessible to users who do not have UCONN NETIDs

https://vpn.uconn.edu/,DanaInfo=dropbox.uconn.edu,SSL+dropbox?n=F5%20MD%20contents.zip&p=WXG2MvUvBMeE4v2qD

Solution

Change everything before the question mark to https://dropox.uconn.edu/?

The portion after the question mark is the command that identifies the file name and everything after the equal sign is the hash or encrypted password.
