You're talking about the Windows FTP protocol support that is built in. That support been in Windows as long as I can remember going back to 3.1. You can do a lot from the Command Line [microsoft.com] with this tool. I find it useful for writing batch files which I can schedule to run basic tasks.

FTP support arrived with IE5/Win98. It works well enough but lacks an ascii mode and a "newer files only" mode. I don't update my site very often - too busy, and this just about suffices for me most of the time.
When I looked for an ftp client a while back I gave up because they were either too expensive, too ugly (I can't remember which) or badly written, etc. I was astonished that I couldn't find anything for my needs.
One was so ugly I couldn't bare to look at it. I didn't just uninstall it I deleted the download - I've never done that before.

...in Internet Explorer (just to clarify). There has always been FTP support in Windows via the command line/DOS window.

Why is it that one of my client's computers doesn't have it and he has XP? Is there a way to shut it off? If so how do I determine if it is still on the computer - look under program files?
I just know, when u put ftp: in my address bar it works and with his it doesn't.
Thanks for your time,

FTP is a built-in Windows service component. It is installed with the IIS component, so if you want to add or remove FTP service from WinXP go here:
Control Panel ¦ Add or Remove Programs ¦ Add/Remove Windows Components ¦ Internet Information Services (IIS) (Details...)
Then check or uncheck the box next to File Transfer Protocol (FTP) Service

IE Options dialog - Advanced tab
There are two boxes for ftp (but not next to each other). One enables ftp and one enables passive mode.

omg u got to get either cute ftp or smart ftp or some sort of decent ftp where you can drag-and-drop like a real man.

If all you want is drag and drop, you can be real manly with the ftp built into IE!

My friend, a Windows guru, thinks IE's ftp is all he needs. I, on the other hand, can't stand it lol... I'm not a Windows guru so I need a little help.
My favorite FTP program is called Filezilla. It's an open source program and is hosted by sourceforge.net
