accessing an ftp server

  vinnyo123 18:01 01 Jun 03

My friend just set up an ftp server using a program called serve4u 4.0 . My other freind can access his ftp server using IE (5.0 or larger)OS windows XP home. My problem is I cannot log on to his ftp server program .OS WIN ME comes up with error " cannot access this folder make sure you have athorization for it" "cannot access server"
I am running WIN ME and using IE 6.0 -I am on a private LAN accessing internet through a router.I tried reguler access with no changes to router np good.I tried port forwarding ftp 20,21-no good also triggering no good.I also tried using the DMZ zone still can't get it .So I assuming it's something to do with the server side as I never used this program so not familiar with its configurations .

If anyone has any advise or ideas will appreciate it !!!! thanks

Try using a dedicated FTP program to access your friends server. Alot of these programs are free. click here+ I suggest WS_FTP LE.

I don't know much about this but try checking the Advanced tab of your Internet Options in IE (Tools menu or right-click desktop icon and choose properties). Is the 'enable folder view for FTP sites ticked?

WS_ftp cannot even find server ,IE lets me connect
but cannot find folders.
