I would have to say, in all honesty - don't bother.

Anybody with the right tools (available as standard) and motivation
*can* extract the connection value - even just running "netstat -an"
will show you the connections to a remote server, it's one tiny
nslookup step from there to discover your server name and another tiny
tracert step to find out how to get there.

That's leaving out tools like etherial for scanning/tracing packets.

Cheers - Neil

A locksmith can also get into a Lexus with the proper tools. I think a
recommendation to keep out most people would work in 90+ percent of the
cases.

The just URL Encode the path to the server and file in your HTML, eg

mms:%2F%2F%6D%79%73%65%72%76%65%72%2E%63%6F%6D%2F%70%61%74%68%2F%74%6F%2F%6D%79%2F%66%69%6C%65%2E%77%6D%76

The browser will decode that to the correct URL. To play :

<script language="javascript1.2">
pathstr="//myserver.com/path/to/my/file.wmv";
resstr="";
for (i=0; i<pathstr.length; i++) {
resstr+="%"+pathstr.charCodeAt(i).toString(16).toUpperCase();
}
document.write('<a href="mms:'+resstr+'">Click For Media</a>');
</script>
