    Although I can connect to my FTP program on my Mac just fine, I would like to connect using Finder instead seeing as all free Mac FTP programs aren't very satisfying.

    When I go to connect to "ftp://yourdomain.com", I get this error:
    "The operation cannot be completed because one or more required items cannot be found.
    (Error code -43)."

    I was wondering if it is just my computer, so I asked a friend for his FTP information. I connected to his server just fine and was able to view and manage all of his files just fine.

    Fill me in about anything I can do to fix the problem from my end.

    You might want to first check what error code -43 means (with respect to Finder). That may shed some light on things.

    Probably along the same lines as using windows folders, because cpanel by supports anonymous ftp - when it is switched off it simply gives the user a prompt saying its switched off, the way I got my users round it, was to deliberatly cause a login failure, for example if the user was called user@domain.com and the domain was domain.com, I get the users to type: ftp://user@domain.com into their windows folder, thus creating a login failure and then they recieve a prompt for the correct username and password, its not very eliquent and causes confusion to the lesser skilled user but I havent been able to find a way around it yet.
