    ftp://username:[email protected]/

    where username is your username
    password is your password
    url is the url ;)

    Also, if you're using Internet explorer, you can just go to
    ftp://url.com
    and then in IE's menu bar, click on File ->Login As...
    You'll be prompted for authentication.

    But this is all sent in the clear, you know. Consider using WinSCP and SSH access. There's info about those here on the forum.

    Maybe I misread your statement[s]...

    Works for me -- I actually tested each step as I was posting it, too.

    I believe IE6 (after one of the service packs) disables full url FTP. Meaning you can't connect using the username and password embedded into the URL. you have to do the Fil -> Login As... method

    I have IE6, fully patched through auto update.... and it works. I have no idea if I have all of the patches.

    One thing is you have to be sure to enable a feature "enable folder view for FTP sites".
    It can be found from Tools -> Internet Options -> Advanced (tab)

    you know.. I think the actual thing that changed was being able to click links with the embedded usernames and PW's. I remember reading something about it.
