I am able to do successfully:
Windows Explorer> Tools> Map Network Drive> Sign Up> Choose another Network Location> and enter my
ftp server information ftp://user:firstname.lastname@example.org
and it works fine.
I would like, however, to be able to have this FTP "connection" to be persistent/sticky such that i can SAVE AS from any window application directly to MyNetworkPlaces>MyFTPServe
(I have other FTP applications, such that i can SAVE AS to my local disk, and then launch my FTP appl and upload that way, but it's very tedious to have to have my local disk as a waystation)
Any tips on how to use the windows ftp connection directly, persistently.
