HTTP:// Address

Problem:

The HTTP:// Address I enter does not work.

Solution:

SmartFTP is not a web browser and does not currently support (HTTP). The http:// prefix is for programs like Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator or Opera.

For SmartFTP, you need to use the prefix ftp:// . So connecting to an ftp server will look like: ftp://smartftp.com/
