    Eh, another comp problem

    I've put up with this problem for a long while, now. For some reason, my computer will not access any FTP sites. Anything that starts with "ftp://" just won't work. However, a site like http://ftp.whatever.com would work. I've tried messing around with Win 2k setting,s but I can't figure it out. I uninstalled my firewall, and that didn't work, either. I'm on the university LAN right now, and none of my buds have this problem. Any suggestions?

    Try using your command prompt and type :
    ftp
    open site.whatever.com


    It's command based, but it might work. IE is so messy for some people.

    Didn't work. It said that the host is unknown. I bet there's a little setting somewhere in Windows that is messing this up... Argh.

    Yeah, but that's a pain in the butt.
