I created a website on IXWebhosting.com. I then set up ftp to a folder named "transfer". On my XP Pro computer I access it by:
ftp://184.108.40.206/ereddick.com/transfer/. It opens immediately (doesn't ask for the name and password I had set up). Then I choose "Open ftp site in Windows Explorer" in the Page dropdown. I can then drag and drop to and from the opened window. Works great. On my Vista computer, I get a login screen, but after I enter the proper name and password, I get the dreaded (Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage". I have a client who needs to upload some files to this ftp. He is running XP Home and Internet Explorer (I don't know which version). He gets the same result as my Vista.
Help, anyone? Thanks
