hi all,

i am not using any proxy setting but i wana know that whenever we give a ftp request in Internet Explorer i.e ftp://...........         IE first sends HTTP request to the FTP server.
i wana know why it does this what is the exact header it is sending and what response it is receiving and how then it establishes connection with FTP server for either uploading or downloading files?

also there is no proxy setting not even in bridge mode also between my computer and gateway.

waiting for a quick response for any of the expert.

thanking all in advance.

regards,

Tushar.

1. check your webserver's http and ftp logs for requests that come in.
2. run http://www.ethereal.com on the client computer.  It will capture every inbound/outbound packet on your network card and has some pretty good built-in analysis
