Hi there

I'm trying to access a FTP server in Windows Explorer. Getting to it, by inputting a username and password, works in Firefox but I'm needing to copy and paste a folder from the server to my desktop.

I get the following message when trying to access the server in Windows Explorer (Windows 10), without any prompt for a username and password

Help!

Many thanks
Stevie

Hi,

You can use a client instead: FileZilla or WinSCP.

All the best,
Thibault

Map a "network" drive in Windows explorer using the url as the path.

Like cybertib I recommend Filezilla. Very straightforward and easy to use.

login the server via ssh and make sure the folder permission is set to ftp or www. I had the same issue a few weeks ago that found out the folder was set to root permission.
