Hi Experts,

I have a folder on an FTP server that I'd like to map onto a network drive on my network. Is this possible? The objective is to make it as easy as possible for the user without the users having to log onto the FTP server each time they want to access the info.

Step by step please..

Thanks in advance..

You could write a batch file that would connect them but you cannot map a drive like that afaik.

thanks though actually it's the other way round - mapping a folder that is on an FTP server to my network
