I have designed my Web Application to send an email with a link to my ftp site so the user can click on it to open files. It is password protected.
I am using a different version of Internet Explorer and it works as intended... I click on the link in the email, I am prompted for logon credentials, and once provided I am presented with the option to 'Open' the file.
My friend at work can't do this with Internet explorer 6.0 as mentioned.. I confirmed that the Browser option of 'Enable FTP Folder view' is selected in my friend's I.E. 6.0 advanced options..
