FTP notation for server login

Post by edwoodza »

hi there
need help to import weather data from a server that requires username and password:
I use the standard ftp notation as follows and it works in my browsers
[url]ftp://user%20:%20pass%20@%20server/filename.txt[/url] (at= the at sign)
DA sees the @ and removes it so it becomes
and as such does not like it and does not work

Your password is there so that only you can upload files to the server. Without it anyone can access the server and upload anything.
You could try something like Fillzilla which does it all for you and means that you don't have to access the ftp website on your browser. You do need to know the server's ftp address, username & password though.
