I really should change my OC back to 3ghz. But yea, not sure why Filezilla takes so long to open and all.

Try this little ftp program ws_ftp -- really small and self explanatory
I've been using this since Windows 95 (still works on W7 X-64 build 7077).

Much easier than mucking about with Windows FTP commands. (If you are going through a Firewall / behind a router allow FTP port to be open BTW).

Program is in the attachment.

FileZilla - The free FTP solution is not mucking around in Windows FTP commands.

Hi there

I didn't mean Filezilla was mucking around with Windows commands - I meant that these FTP programs are easier than using the CLI in a Command box (Windows commands) for your FTP stuff.

Filezilla is fine -- I just was offering the OP another choice if he was having problems with it.

Start, type inetcpl.cpl <enter>, select the Advanced tab, type "use" and toggle the Use Passive FTP option.

Hi there.
that's the simplest method generally.

So just enter the FTP address in the Browser address bar as ftp://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx and you are done.

If the remote site requires a password then you'll be prompted with a screen requesting you to enter a user id and password.

Then just use Cut and Paste to transfer files (in either direction).

IE isn't the nicest interface but it works.

That setting not only affects the Internet Explorer application but all other features in Windows that rely on it. For example, the Network Location folders in the shell allow you folder-based access to FTP and WebDav sites and as if they were folders on your hard drive. Open the Computer folder in Explorer, right click in an empty spot in the right pane, and select Add a Network Location.

ok, could the fix to this small problem be that you cant upload a Virtual dir, since thats basically what the Library is? Same "type of" principle in say a ServU dir structure with virtual paths and so on.. its THERE but not there, type thing. Reason why he has no problem accessing it locally. Sorta like when you setup your own ftp server and you can login but ppl outside cant and you wonder why. (well sort of)

Try going specifically to the location of that file and then uploading from the ACTUAL dir location, not via library

He's only starting there and completely replacing the address with ftp://...

The problem is that he can't get an outbound connection handle and setting passive will fix it, that is, if he's even still reading
