I have an ftp address that is not working in internet explorer.
if you enter the address in internet explorer ftp//x.x.x.x it prompts for
the username and password fine but then after entering them it just sits
there with the loading page symbol and bar at the bottom slowly moving till
it gets to half way, then it stays at halfway for about 10mins then the bar
starts moving again to the end but keeps looking like it's loading the page -
doesn't seem to come up with an error. PC is not hanged and IE is still
I have tried it on 2 different pc's at our office and with ie7 and ie8,
tried playing with the passive settings etc but no difference.
If I try on my home internet connection with my laptop that doesn't work at
the office it works immediately.
If I try a 3rd party ftp client such as goftp in the office it works fine.
If I try a different ftp address in IE from inside the office it works fine.
I'm stumped what the problem could be and I'm told that we don't want to use
a 3rd party ftp client.
If anyone can help - thanks
