Help Me Damnit Give Me A Ftp Program To Connect To A Server
You can use "My Network Places" (a standard feature of Windows). Use the "Add Network Place" wizard and use ftp for the address (ftp://YourServerIPaddress). You will need the user name and password that the server hosting company gave you. Then you can edit the config files on your computer then drag and drop the edited file(s) to the server's base folder or whatever.
Amidala I followed your steps, but it stays asking for the pass when I enter the folder.
Make sure your password and username is correct, otherwise contact your server provider with the email i posted above.

You have to have the user name and password assigned by your server host. They usually send them to you in an email when you order your server.
Step 1. Double-click Add Network Place
Step 2. Type the location of the network place ftp://yourServerIPaddress, click Next
Step 3. Uncheck the Log in Anonymously box, enter the User Name that your server hosting company provided, click Next
Step 4. Enter a Name for the shortcut. You can call it "My JA server" or leave it as the ftp address or whatever. Click Finish.
It will then connect to the server and give you a "Login As" dialog box. Enter the password that your server host gave you in the email they sent you, check the Save Password box, then click Login.
You should then see the folders on your remote hosted server. You can't edit files directly, but you can copy files to your desktop, edit them, then drag them back to the server.
