How can I setup a Network Place in XP (SP3) for a Linux server?


I would like to have ftp access the files on a Linux Server using XP. It's easy with a windows server but Microsoft doesn't work with the Linux server. Any ideas?

Sorry, but Windows does work with Linux servers.

It would help if we had details, like verison/distro of Linux, and what FTP server you're running, and what error(s) you're getting. Normally, you should just be able to fire up the FTP server on Linux, and FTP right over. You could also run Samba, and map the Linux server as another Windows box, too.....

Thank you for your reply. I received an solution for my question since my posting. I found "FTP Commander Deluxe" as a free download from the Internet. It not only has FTP transfer but also a functional shell that I can issue commands directly to the Linux Server. As for my version of Linux ... Red Hat Linux, Kernel Version 2.4.21, Web Server Apache 1.3. Thank you!

No problem, glad it's working for you. But holy cow...your Linux box is pretty old. Would be kinda like running Windows 95, to draw an analogy. You should investigate Samba, though. It's not hard to set up, and if you've got to play with Windows boxen, it makes life very easy.
