074 - Connecting FTP sites with a browser

To connect to a FTP server requiring a username with Firefox,

1. Open Firefox

2. In the locator bar, type ftp://username: password@ftp.xyz.com

For example, if my User name was jess12 and my password was bosox67, the FTP browser syntax would be:

ftp://user01: pass01@ftp.xyz.com

In some cases, the User name includes a domain name such as user01@xyz.com.
In these situations, you would type:

ftp:// user01@xyz.com: pass01@ftp.xyz.com
