You should check in your Netscape preferences under proxies
to make sure you have an FTP server specified. In normal
circumstances the FTP proxy can be the same as the http proxy,
particularly if you can FTP from other client programs.

I have just set up a workstation for student use of the www via netscape.
Formerly I have worked with slip/ppp connections via 28.8 modems and isdn.
Now I have finally been given permission from our computer center to run
the web via the network.  For some reason I cannot access any ftp sites.
get I have no trouble with http.  I can also use a separate ftp program
on the machine and I am able to download successfully.
Does anyone have any suggestions
