    That doesn’t work for me, strangely it just opens Firefox and tries the url ‘’ which then says it cannot connect – how come it opens firefox?

      You probably have Firefox set as the application to handle FTP. I think Firefox might do that with a standard install.

    it does not allow me to drag files over (ie. read only). how can i change this?

      Right. You need a different program to do that. See episode 228 for an example.

    What a Crock, It obviously did not work for the woman in the video either!

    I tried it and it kept re-logging into our ftp and repeatedly requested a directory listing. When I tried to stop it, it just hung there forever.

    MAC’s don’t crash, they just hang indefinitely.

    this doesn’t work because when you drag a file i get a red x. or safari tries to open it or display it. how do you ftp using safari? i don’t want to look at the files i want to upload. thanks, /T
