Fedora FTP

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?

I would instruct the users to login using the following format. ftp://username:password@myftpsite/  Also you can view the files in explorer mode if you login from MY Computer/Explorer.


I prefer an FTP client other than IE7/Explorer.

Sorry about the slow response. I did try ftp://user@ftp.site.com, and with Internet Explorer I get weird results ( surprise, surprise ) . Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.  I found that if I dug down to the user’s favorites in WindowsXP ( c:\documents and settings\user\favorites ) and went to the properties of the favorite that I want to use for the ftp site. It works reliably, but I can’t email a copy of a favorite, at least not through outlook, and I don’t have access to this users hard drive to manually change his favorites.  I’m not opposed to using a FTP client, but you don’t know the user I’m trying to help. Let’s just say this user is HIGH maintenance.
