Hi

I am trying to open an ftp site from a button on an Intranet.  All machines are using IE7 so I need the button to open windows explorer with the address ftp://192.168.16.1  and then ask for the login details.

I would have thought that something like

“%windir%\explorer.exe ftp://192.168.16.1”

Would work, but no luck.  The site is written in php / html

Can any one help??

Cheers

Si

Hi

This is ok, but it does not open in explorer ... it opens a new IE page.  The problem with this is IE7 does not support FTP  you have to click page, open FTP site in windows explorer.  Although this is easy enough to do my beloved users will get confused, bless them.

Any ideas
Cheers
