Re: FTP works different
I am having a similar problem. Except now that I have my FTP saved in
"My network places" I can see all of my files and folders on the FTP but
anytime I try to open any of them it prompts me for continuous logins? I am
unable to open any of my files like I used to before upgrading to IE7 even in
my network places. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
