problems linking to my ftp site from my homepage
bear w/my newbie-ness please:
i am trying to add a link to my website that will allow users to go directly from my website to my ftp login site. i've tried embeding the link into my html code (ex. <a href="ftp://188.8.131.52/">my ftp site), but all it does when clicked on is send me to the typical "website not found" page. yet when i type the same exact link to my ftp site into my address bar from just the net itself, it works fine. i don't understand the difference. any suggestions would be great. thanks.

I made a sample piece of code that I tested and works perfectly well. My guess would be that you didn't close you <a> with </a> maybe?

nah, that didn't work for some reason. i had closed out my </a> i thought, but i checked it again anyway like you said and it was coded right. i am almost certain it has to do w/the ip address itself and me not scripting it right in the code. anyway, this is really weird. thanks so much for your help anyway.
