[2006.11.10] The login to FTP doesn't work in IE and Firefox.


I have trouble logging in. I have tried via Fire Fox as well as CuteFTP but both say the password is not accepted.
Fixed -- steven black

This wiki provides FTP directories to add graphics to topics, and to share files
I've adjusted the FTP directories for the wiki, at
ftp://fox.wikis.com
ftp://sql.wikis.com
ftp://vb.wikis.com
ftp://dotnet.wikis.com
ftp://b2b.wikis.com
Authentication (Which will periodically change)
User Name: wikiuser
Password: category.wiki

Therein there are two sub directories:
  • /graphics, for graphics, and in your topics you may alias this directory as img src='graphics/foxpaw.gif', like this:
  • /files, for files. You may alias this directory as files\.
    You don't have to open an ftp session in a DOS box... other than the fact that I kept getting unknown host errors...

    To upload files:
    • Simply click the ftp link above and that will display the folder in the browser window
    • click down to the graphics (or files) folder
    • open a separate Explorer window for your machine
    • drag and drop the files into the browser window
    Required Settings:
    BrowserVersionSettingValue
    Internet Explorer5.??Tools - Internet Options - Advanced Options - "Web-Based FTP"unchecked
    6.0.2800.1106ISTools - Internet Options - Advanced Options - "Enable folder view for FTP sites"checked
    Mozilla1.4 + I couldn't get this to work. It just says: "Not logged in."
    Try ftp://wikiuser:[email protected]/, (for the current username:password, that is)

    This works with IE5. I'm not sure about other browsers.
    Depends on your setting under Advanced Options for "Web-Based FTP". Make sure this is unchecked. And, no, I don't know who at MS came up with that name and that behavior. In Netscape, just pick File Upload when you're on a FTP URL. -- Randy Pearson
    In IE6.0.2800.1106IS this option is called "Enable folder view for FTP sites" and must be checked -- wgcs
    Do you like all your IE5 favorites to look the same? All (or almost) with the standard IE icon? So wait no more!
    I converted foxpaw.gif to .ico and uploaded it to 'graphics\foxpaw.ico'.
    Just download the file to your drive, then right click in your Fox Wiki favorites entry and select properties/change icon. -- Alex Feldstein
