    Right-click and FTPing (MYIE2 & NetCaptor)

    I am starting a site (www.componentics.com), and placed a text page "Command Syntax.txt" on the ftp arm -- ftp://www.componentics.com. Also tried "ftp://ftp.componentics.com... both worked, in theory. More next paragraph...

    If I go to the ftp page shown above with IE, I can right-click etc, or double-click...etc.

    Any other browser I tried didn't work. When I wrote support about this, they couldn't get IE to work.

    Any ideas why? If you did try it, did it work for you? If not, any message? If message, what the hey does it mean?

    Totally confused...

    Regards,

    Different browsers handle FTP sites differently. (Duh!) IE works slightly differently depending on the "Enable folder view for FTP sites" in Tools>Options>Advanced. But it's not a huge difference.

    What is it that you want to happen? Do you want to let people browse your files as a virtual directory with all browsers?

    Jefferson:

    Eventually browsing ability would be nice... for now I'll settle for right-click options (like IE) and double-click download.
