using GNOME, i've been going from the taskbar, Places > Connect to Server > and then the FTP address w/ my username, etc. this works perfectly for my Linux server accounts, but those that i have which are on Windows Servers-- that method is not working.
Do i need to use Wine? if so-- how? where can i learn how to use that? all i've done has been to pull up the config window... and one other time it automatically opened for something... an archive unpacking.. i forget. anyway-- i didn't see any specific way of getting into wine-- if that's in fact what i need to do.
maybe i just need a windows-friendly 'FTP Client'? it took me a while to realize that FTP is available as part of GNOME, but it's not working for my windows server.
