Hi Guys,

We are using Internet Explorer 7 and using Proxy server. Normal Browsing works fine but It has problem openening FTP Sites. It does not open all FTP Sites that require user credetials and works fone with Anonymous FTPs.

It appears that this problem is only happening with IE7 and IE6 works fine with proxy.

Urgent Help woould be greatly appricieted.

" l.. FTP Authentication--The user is not prompted for credentials when
visiting an authenticated FTP site in Internet Explorer 7. This is a known
issue, and the workaround is to enter the credentials directly into the FTP
URL; for example, ftp://username:passw...@example.com"
