I have a Fedora core 4 computer setup as a FTP server, and a Winders IIS 6 server that also has FTP. On both servers, if a client tries to connect with Internet Explorer, they initially get an error because IE tries to connect anonymously. All the user has to do is click ok to the error, then click file, login as..., and enter the name and password. For the IIS machine, the next time you try to connect with IE, IE remembers not to login anonymously. For the Fedora machine, IE never remembers, you always get the anonymous error. I don't get how IE does it, I experimented with clearing cookies, and temp internet files, but IE always remembers. Is there a way to have IE remember not to login anonymously to the Fedora box?
