Our business is using a Windows 2003 server as an FTP server.
It is configured in such a way as to have a number of virtual directories setup as individual landing points for clients as they FTP in.
For example: a client may FTP using ftp://126.96.36.199/name1
Success plops them into their own private directory on the server.
This all works well..however...if I try to login from my home machine (XP), I cannot.
Keep in mind we're talking using the EXPLORER interface, NOT INTERNET EXPLORER.
I can find many users who seem to be using exactly what I'm using (XP) and putting the URL above into their address bar, getting the username/password screen and logging in.
Yet when I try from my home machine I get : "an error occurred opening the folder on the FTP Server. Make sure you have permission to access this folder"
I have no firewall running and everything seems to be typical.
