Q1: Why is it that I cannot seem to open ANY FTP site using IE7?
I can easily open the needed FTP site using Firefox, but IE 7 fails everytime.  The FTP sites I am trying to go to worked fine under IE 6.  Something has changed.  

Can someone tell me how to use IE 7 and open a FTP site?

Q2:  How can I use IE 7 to open a FTP site, BUT NOT be logged in as the anonymous user?  I want to log into the FTP as an authenticated user ... Again, I was able to do this just fine under IE 6, but IE 7 must have changed somethings around.
