Accessing the S: Drive with Internet Explorer
|We have confirmed some problems accessing the
S:-Drive from the Business Computer Lab homepage when using
Internet Explorer browsers.
The Internet Explorer (IE) web browser will not let students download files. We have confirmed that those problems are related to the way IE manages passive FTP access and FTP messages.
Apply the latest patches and service patch for Internet Explorer from the Microsoft web site using " Windows Update" from the Tools menu (IE v5.0 or later) or the " Product Updates" from the Help menu option (IE v4.0 or earlier).
