How to use Internet Explorers built in FTP Client with Active FTP

Open Internet Explorer, click tools > Internet options > Advanced > scroll down until you see "Use Passive FTP" and verify that this is unchecked.

This will force Internet Explorer to use Active FTP rather than Passive FTP.

Now type in ftp://_yourdomain .com_ in the address bar, when prompted enter the login credentials: your_username and then Your_Password after which depending on your version of Internet explorer you may need to perform the following steps; click view > Open FTP Site in Windows Explorer and reenter your login credentials. Now you can drag, drop and edit files as needed from windows explorer.
