    use the urlencoded value of @ instead of the sign itself for the username.

    I cant remember exactly what it is, but do a search here and it will be in another thread.

    The hex ASCII value for @ is 40, so I would expect an @ to be URL-encoded as %40.

    I've just tested this and it works nicely:

    Code:
    [url]ftp://ftpuser%40example.com:password@ftp.example.com/[/url]

    I try to put this in html file and it doesn't work:
    ftp://clienti@triumphmedia.ro:clienti@ftp.triumphmedia.ro
    I have something in my mind but I am so tired now.

    If I try to copy - paste this in browser, it's working. I think I must find the urlencoded value for % to send it in a link to browser. I don't know.

    This works Perfect in my case, who is a subdomain FTP.
    This just because IE doesn't accept 2 @@ in the same link.......
    Solved!
    :D :D :D

    new user also having trouble

    I'm also having trouble with the URL for FTP through IE. I've searched the forum and while this thread is exactly what I'm looking for (I've tried the instructions above but I still get an error message). Unfortunately I'm technically challenged but my host is unable to help me. I know it's simple but it's just defeating me.

    Is there anything else I should be doing? Something that may seem simple to you but not to me??!!
