    WIN XP and Mindspring FTP (Windows XP Pro SP1)

    I've used a variety of FTP program for many years, including CuteFTP and 32bitFTP on Win 2000, Win98, Win ME -- all successfully transferring files up and down to my Mindspring account. When I got my new Dell Dimension 4550 which came preloaded with Win XP SP1, I could not do FTP from my PC to my Mindspring account using the settings I used before. I spoke many times with Earthlink (Mindspring) tech support and 32bitFTP tech support and nobody could help me.
    Then I installed the all-in-one program from Earthlink called TotalAccess2003. That fixed my problem (without changing any settings in the FTP programs), although it has other problems such as losing my favorites in IE. Anyway, if I log into Mindspring with TotalAccess, my FTP works from whatever program I want. If I log into Mindspring using just the Dialup icon on the desktop FTP does not work.

    Anyone know what DLL, process, etc. I could run to make FTP work without using the brain-dead TotalAccess program?

    thanks

    Have you tried running the command-prompt version of FTP to connect?

    I've never used the command version of FTP. Where can I find out out to use it?
    thanks.
