Accessing FTP Site

  KW2K 11:33 24 Sep 2005

Hi folks,I'm trying to access a ftp site for which I have a username and password to log into. However when I type the address into the browser I get a message which says windows cannot access this folder, make sure you typed the file name correctly and that you have permission to access the folder.

Any ideas why this is ?

Try entering the URL in Windows Explorer (rather than a web browser) in the format:

f t p ://username:[email protected]

[WITHOUT the spaces in "ftp"]

Hello mgmcc,
Well Done ! I can now get access to my files, Thanks for your advice,I would never have thought of accessing them that way with the username:password format.
