    Can anyone connect to an FTP server using explorer?

    Adding FTP servers via the "Add a Network Location"-wizard doesn't seem to work either (in Computer, right-click on empty space to see the "Add a Network Location" menu item).

    FTP works fine otherwise (via the command prompt or web browser, f.ex.)...

    Cheers!

    Windows has had support for browsing FTP sites (and mounting FTP sites as virtual disk drives or folders) for ages and it works really well (works more or less exactly like file and folder management in explorer in general). So, I really don't have a need for a third-party client...

    But, sure, a third-party FTP client will do - for now. :)

    Hi ihrg,

    I've tried a couple of 3rd party apps that load 'Cloud Drives' as Windows Drives. They all have problems in Windows 7, so it maybe a network thing. :(
