Yes, and I have had no problems.
So, I have to say that I am not certain what you are doing, but it
appears that you are trying to use an FTP site that you have to log in
to. I have not tried that yet.
Remember that you should use the FileManagement profile for FTP.
If I go to a not log on site, it works correctly. Would you please try:
This should show a bunch of folders. If I click on one of them, it
opens, no problem.
