    I set up a site using ISPConfig and the ftp works fine through Dreamweaver and other ftp programs, but it won't work using Internet Explorer, which is how I have done it in the past. I would simply type in ftp.mydomain.com and it would work fine. Can someone explain if and how my site can be set up to do that using ISPConfig?

    try following

    ftp ://webX_user : password @ domainname.com (without the spaces) in the explorer

    but best is to use filezilla or something like that...

    maybe this helps

    So, what's the difference between the way ISPConfig sets up ftp access and servers that allow you to simply type in the ftp address?

    the method I provided (did it work) is with is username and password.

    The mothed you describe seems to be anonymous FTP,
    this is also possiblke by enabling this in ISPCONFIG.

    It does work to enter the username as you described, but I would like to simply enter ftp://mydomain.com and have it prompt me for the username and password.

    What you are requesting has nothing to do with the server. If a FTP client prompts you for the username and password if you dont provide it in the URL is implemented on the client side and not on the server.

    On the server I had previously, if I entered ftp://mydomain.com in a browser it would come up and ask me for a username and password. Now it goes right into an empty folder and, in the bottom left, it says "User: anonymous"...the think is I turned off anonymous ftp.

    What FTP server do you use? ProFTPD or vsftpd?

    ProFTP. I set everything up according to the perfect setup.

    What's in your proftpd.conf and in proftpd_ispconfig.conf?
