I am unable to use my XP IE to login to my FTP @ work. The FTP is running on a 2000 server and I can use 9x/2000 to login no problem. I have tried the Folder view option to no avail. Any help is much apreciated.

Try passive mode

Tools --> Internet Options --> advanced

look below the options for Underline Links, and check the "Use Passive Ftp" box.

TRhnx for the reply. But that did not work. I have a Linksys firewall. The XP and PCCIllin firewalls are turned off.

When I try to access the page it just says "Page Can't be Displayed".

I have tried from outside my router and it says something to the effect of "no access".

I can't belive I didn't think to try that. WSFTP works great on it. But I would still like to find out why XP has an issue.
