Hi, If I go to the APH site and click on contacts and copy the ftp address to the clipboard and then paste it into the open dialog of IE, It does not work unless I delete the two asterisks at the end of the url. I'm not sure why they are there, but deleting them seems to work. I just tried the ftp site and it is up and running.

Make sure you typed the file name correctly and that you have permission to access the folder. Details: A connection with the server could not be established OK Joseli Walter I'd say I've lost my sanity, but you can't loose what you never had to begin with!!
