There are a few ways to connect by FTP to a host. The easiest way is using Internet Explorer which has the best ftp support.



In order to connect by FTP with your browser, you should just use the following address:



ftp://YourFtpUser:[email protected]



However, if your FTP user to connect is similar to [email protected] then you will have to URL encode it like this:



ftp://YourFtpUser%40YourDomain.com:Your ... domain.com



In the above case it is important to note what the FTP username is:



YourFtpUser%40YourDomain.com



This address is URL-encoded and comes from [email protected] where @ has been substituted with %40, which is the ASCII code for @.
