I can't connect to any ftp servers (eg. ftp.microsoft.com) or download a
file from a webpage that links to a ftp server (eg. ftp.hp.com). Both ftp
servers used as examples allow anonymous logons. EI7 gives the "Internet
explorer cannot display the webpage" message when I try to connect.
If I go to the "menu bar" and select "view"->"Open FTP site in Windows
Explorer" I get a message from "Internet Explorer Security" saying Windows
wants to open Web content.
If I "allow" this I get another message saying " Windows can't access this
folder..." the name maybe incorrect or you don't have permission to access
I have tried all the suggestions this and other groups have suggested but I
can't fix this problem.
I have tried to use "Windows Explorer" to open a connection to
but I get a message saying "Windows can't access this
folder the name maybe incorrect or you don't have permission to access the
I have compared the "Internet Options" on the "Security" and "Advanced" tabs
another Vista PC running on the same home network that doesn't have this
problem and both PC are the same.
I have used another internet browser (Apple's Safari Browser) installed on
the problem PC and it works correctly browsing ftp sites or webpages with
links to ftp servers.
The problem I am have seem to be one of not having permission to use the
folder that IE7 uses to store the ftp sites information.
Some of the other things tried include:
-Turning off firewall, anit-virus software, User Account Control, Popup
-I have checked IE7 Internet Options -> "Advanced Tab" and "Enabe FTP folder
viewing (outside outside of Internet Explorer)" is cheched.
Any help would be appreciated
