How to map a FTP adress to a driveletter in VB6

Last Modified: 2012-08-14
When I use this snippet wich I got from a other qst,  this will work fine on a internal IP adres on my Nas driev, but how to use this when I ' am outside,
and the Nas drive has a good working FTP connection
This is snippet for inside the office

Private Sub cmdMAP_Click()
    Dim WN
    DL = "S:"
    rp = "\\\TOTALVERS"
    Set WN = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
    WN.MapNetworkDrive DL, rp
End Sub"

but when I do eg.
 rp = "ftp://jack@xx.xx.xx.x./TOTALVERS"
 rp = "ftp://jack@xx.xx.xx.x./"

I get error networkadress not supported

When I use explorer , making a new network connection it will work,
Thus the qst is , is it possible to make a connection to FTP this way, and then add a Drive letter to it?
