    I'm having some trouble trying to get Internet Explorer to connect to my FTP server using IIS. Under Default FTP Website, I entered in my IP address and I'm not exactly sure what to do from here? Does anyone know how to do this?

    Don't use IIS as an FTP server. Try Bulletproof FTP server or something similar.

    I just want to use IIS because I like how you can view the FTP server through a web browser or can you do that with Bullet FTP?

    Yeah, you can do that with Bulletproof. But why would you want to use IE as an FTP client? :dunno:

    I tried to use Bulletproof before and for some odd reason I can't set it up behind my Linksys router. Is there a special configuration that I have to input in the router while using bulletproof?
