Original title: Odd error when trying to map FTP server to a network drive
OS: Windows 7: Home Premium x64
Hello. I've been trying to map an ftp server in which I can successfully access with a web browser. However Windows will not let me map it to a drive.
Steps I've done to attempt to map drive:
1. Right click Computer
2. Click Map Network Drive
3. Click "Connect to a Web site that you can use to store your documents and pictures."
4. Go through Add Network Location wizard
5. Upon entry of ftp address, the following error is displayed: "The folder you entered does not appear to be valid. Please choose another."
Upon receiving this error, I ran the following Trouble Shooter in Windows' Action Center: Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Troubleshooting > Network and Internet > Shared Folders
I run the troubleshooter and provide the ftp - "\\IP ADDRESS\"
The following is displayed: "The remote device or resource won't accept the connection"
I clicked "View Detailed Information"
Under Issues Found: "The remote device or resource won't accept the connection. The device or resource (IP ADDRESS) is not set up to accept connections on port "The File and printer sharing (SMB)".
