Recently all of our clients have been upgraded to IE8. Since this upgrade has taken place we are no longer able to access external ftp sites. When we try to access the sites in just comes up with a blank screen.
I have been doing some research and testing on this issue and it appears to be a problem with IE8. I am able to access the site through clients still running IE6 and the site is also accessible through Windows Explorer as there is an option off the VIEW menu in IE8 that allows the FTP site to be opened in Windows explorer and this works fine.
Is there anyway that IE8 can be configured to open FTP sites, or do they all need to be accessed through Windows Explorer.
As a footnote to this we do have a proxy server, but I think that it is more of an issue with IE8 than with the proxy.
Any suggestions would be appreciated
