Hi

I have an application which runs on linux and windows....but is mainly used on windows. Now the input data to this application is given at runtime from a linux driven program ....the input data is easily accessable through ftp.
I'd like to let the user to browse using jfilechooser into his/her directory grabing the input required from (networkplaces->ftp://xxx.xxx.x.x)the linux box, but the content of the ftp does not appear
because the user needs to type types in their password. but Jfilechooser does not popup any window asking for password.... how can i do this smoothly without setting up client server app ....I just want to use a simple  jfilechooser now this is  only a suggestion.... so if you have better please let me know with example code would be appricated.

cheers.

Don't think that is supported by JFileChooser - it's a Windows Explorer thing

Don't *think* you can map a drive letter to an ftp folder, unless it's on your LAN (and then it wouldn't *need* to be ftp) but i could be wrong

As you said earlier:
