    I used the "Virtual Hosting With PureFTPd And MySQL (Incl. Quota And Bandwidth Management)" to set up PureFTPd with MySQL on my Ubuntu Linux Server. I have noticed that I can connect to the server from a console prompt using ftp and move files to and from it. I can also use DOS FTP and any ftp program (ie..WSFTP, CuteFTP, etc..), but If I try to use a regular XP PC browser, it will not connect. Any ideas?

    RE: FTP Question

    I found my answer :

    Using the web browser in XP is using anonymous access whereas through FTP Software or command line entry, requires username and password. Since my anonymous access is disabled, the user has to use this syntax...
    ftpusername@xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx or ftpuser@ftpserver.com, which will then prompt for a password.
