Can't view FTP site in Wondows explorer

Post by colbem59 » Wed Oct 08, 2008 6:41 pm

I haven't been able to access the new webspace ever since the changeover. Internet Explorer brings up the following page:

FTP root at
To view this FTP site in Windows Explorer, click Page, and then click Open FTP Site in Windows Explorer.

09/10/2008 10:20PM Directory .
09/10/2008 10:20PM Directory ..

Then when I try to view it in Windows Explorer I get a message box saying:

Windows cannot access this folder. Make sure you typed the file name correctly and that you have permission to access the folder.
Details: A connection with the server could not be established

Thanks anyone for help here.

Could you try connecting with a 'real' FTP client, and see if that works any better for you? Something like WS_FTP?
