    Question Mounting network place in Windows 7

    in vista, i was able to mount an ftp network place in windows explorer. windows 7 doesn't like that.

    i was also able to put ftp://ftp.foo.bar in the IE address bar, and a windows explorer window would appear. that doesn't happen either



    am i doing something wrong? is this enhanced security in 7? is there something i can do to remedy the situarion?

    agreed, it should work. and like i said, it works perfectly in vista. but not on my windows 7 install

    i get this error

    an error occurred opening that folder on the FTP server. Make sure you have permission to access that folder

    Details:
    The handle is invalid

    I tried it on my W7. It worked. Try following the exact steps (as Admin) as mentioned in the link and let us know at what stage you receive the error.

    I stand corrected. While I was able to create the folder yesterday in W7, when I tried to enter the username and password today, I too got the same error. Yes it is a known issue. Pls see discussion at Technet.

    I see Ramesh has just said the same thing.

    glad it wasn't just me, or some obscure IE setting, or a firewall rule, or something else.

    i really hate using a dos window, ftp, bin, has, get, put :-)
