For those of you running WIN XP SP 2 and you are using FTP for your projects, make sure you follow these steps to keep from near tearing your hair out if you use internet explorer to access your FTP server:
Under the tools->internet options->advanced Tab:
1) Make sure that you have “Enable folder view for FTP sites” enabled/checked !
2) Make sure that you have “Use Passive FTP (for firewall and DSL modem compatibility)” unchecked/disabled !
If this saved you several hours of time and you're running win xp sp2, please comment here! I'd love to hear your comments of what has and has not worked for you with the SP 2.
