FTP link to work in all browsers (Chrome, IE9, Firefox)

Is there a winning combination that will make a FTP link work in all the browsers?

  • Works in Chrome + Firefox but doesn't work in IE9: ftp://username:password@ftpserver/folder
  • Works only in IE9, but not in the others: ftp://username:password@ftpserver/path/to/folder

Seems that IE9 only works if you give it an absolute path. Anybody found a better solution?


ANSWERS:


I think you have another problem than browser incompatibility. I just tried all 3 browsers and they all acted the same way with the same FTP url. Maybe there is some kind of a shortcut/redirection path in your FTP root and other browsers support this but IE9 doesn't (I don't think so but trying to see what might be wrong). Otherwise, all 3 browsers should be able to see the same root and should work with same paths according to my tests with my FTP servers.


Try ftp://username:password@ftpserver/folder/ (add the trailing slash if it is a folder). This works in IE too.

By the way, I suppose there is no such notion as absolute path in FTP links: all FTP paths are treated as being originated from FTP root folder.
