Actually it requires an "anonymous" login. You can see this by trying the ftp
command in a cmd window.

Did you try Don's suggestion to create a Network Place?
That's one of the things that it would be good for.
Again, there's a difference in IE7 versus IE6 on this point too.
E.g. in IE6 once you had started an FTP session the File menu
would get a Login As... item added to it. That's where you could
use your userid/password more securely than modifying the URL
as you're doing now. E.g. if it is a shared machine and you care
about your authentication being available for others you will probably
have to clear History after each such FTP session (unless IE7 has
a feature which deletes those parts of the URL before it adds them
to the TypedURLs list or the History and AutoSuggest list? <w>)
