    FTP help please!!

    I need the help of someone who knows about FTP.

    During a recent telephone conversation I had with a web hosting company, the man said that I could upload my files using internet explorer. He said that instead of using the http:// that I could use ftp:// followed by the web adress, an example being ftp://oneandone.co.uk

    This does not work and I'm not sure what he means. All I get is the page not found page.

    Can anyone throw any light on this? I am totally confused.

    Also could someone send me an ftp address that does work so I can see what he is talking about?

    Thank you.

    Try
    Code:
    ftp://username:password@ftp.yoursite.com
    username is your username etc... the part after the @ may be ftp. or www. depends on how your hosing is configured.

    You also may need to turn on FTP folder view in Internet Explorer. Under Tools - Internet Options, go to advanced and there should be a check mark to "Enable Folder view for FTP Sites" make sure that is checked.
