basic ftp question

    Greetings. I have been having trouble accessing ftp accounts created with webhostmanager. Please help.

    Through WHM i create an account at www.xyz.com:
    login = accountx
    password = passx

    now i go to IE 6 with folder view for ftp enabled. what do i type in the address box? what is the username? what is the password?

    Sorry if this seems pretty stupid, but...

    Also, i enabled uploading for anonymous users (i know it is a bad idea, just trying to work around the above scenario for now). when i login as anonymous i am still unable to upload. even when folder permissions on public_ftp are 777.

    Help would be apprecieated.

    You should be creating the account as

    xyz.com

    (without the www)

    The FTP details would then be:

    ftp username = account username (accountx)
    ftp password = account password (passx)

    If you then create addtional FTP accounts via the domain's control panel the details change.

    ftp username = nominated username (in form of username@xyz.com)
    ftp password = nominated password

    If you have enabled anonymous FTP this account will require an IP address (not a shared IP - my understanding from some other posts) and you will only be able to upload into the incoming/ directory.
