trying to connect to remote server's d drive with ftp

   I am trying to access my clients server using ftp.  I want to access the d: drive but when I connect it goes to c:.  I am a programmer.   I know nothing about setting up these connections.  How do I get access to the d: drive for ftp.  

  Eventually I want to be able to use this connection for Dreamweaver to change files directly on the server.  Not sure how to setup that network connection.

How are you connecting to the client server and is there any FTP server set on that server ?

Can you not navigate or change directory to D drive once getting into C drive ?

Check in the client machine which drive is assigned to be part of the FTP server.. May be D drive is not allowed access .
Check in there

I think that you may be correct about access not allowed.  I have put in a request to change that.  I don't know how we can get around the need to access the d drive.  Perhaps just during setup then change to deny access after that.  Is the d drive (where we have all the data) normally blocked from ftp?
It depends on how the FTP is set on the server.. Do you guys have a FTP server on the server running ?

How do you access that C drive from your machine through command prompt or  Windows GUI ?

You're client's server needs to be configured to export the d: drive via FTP.  FTP, by default, if running, always connects you to c:\inetpub\ftproot - you can add virtual directories to other paths, including D:\, but by default, that's the only one.  Your client needs to configure the FTP server to allow you to connect to the d: drive if they haven't already
