    Im a bit of an ftp newbie, and i am having a prob with my server.
    When i connect to my server via internet explorer/firefox, and click on a file in it, it tries to either open that file in another browser window, or tries to navigate to it like a directory. ive tried txt,zip,iso,exe the same thing happens. is there a setting that just allows me to download things, not just replace?
    my pure-ftp.conf file:

    # Cage in every user in his home directory

    # When a file is uploaded and there is already a previous version of the file
    # with the same name, the old file will neither get removed nor truncated.
    # Upload will take place in a temporary file and once the upload is complete,
    # the switch to the new version will be atomic. For instance, when a large PHP
    # script is being uploaded, the web server will still serve the old version and
    # immediatly switch to the new one as soon as the full file will have been
    # transfered. This option is incompatible with virtual quotas.
    # NoTruncate               yes
    # This option can accept three values :
    # 0 : disable SSL/TLS encryption layer (default).
    # 1 : accept both traditional and encrypted sessions.
    # 2 : refuse connections that don't use SSL/TLS security mechanisms,
    #     including anonymous sessions.
    # Do _not_ uncomment this blindly. Be sure that :
    # 1) Your server has been compiled with SSL/TLS support (--with-tls),
    # 2) A valid certificate is in place,
    # 3) Only compatible clients will log in.
    # TLS                      1
    # Listen only to IPv4 addresses in standalone mode (ie. disable IPv6)
    # By default, both IPv4 and IPv6 are enabled.
    # IPV4Only                 yes
    # Listen only to IPv6 addresses in standalone mode (ie. disable IPv4)
    # By default, both IPv4 and IPv6 are enabled.
    # IPV6Only                 yes
    # FileSystemCharset	big5
    # ClientCharset		big5
    Help would be very much appreciated.

    PS I had to remove some of the comments in the code to make it fit in the message

    Have you tried a real FTP client like SmartFTP or WS_FTP? A browser is not what you want to use for FTP.
