MWG 6.9 IE FTP with "/" in username

Is it possible to connect  to anh FTP site with IE using credentials when the username contains a "/"?

We have tried ftp://domain/usernameSmiley Tongueassword@ftp.domainname.com

But it just fails, never making it to the webgateway.

I think forward slashes are invalid in usernames

In Active directory domains you should be using backslashes or try ftp://username@domain: password@ftp.domainname.com

Hi J,

Typically when you have to specify the domain a backslash is used (I thought).

When you say it never makes it to the Web Gateway do you mean the browser never makes the request? I have seen that problem with IE doing that when an email address was used for the ftp username.

If I drop to a command line and ftp from there I have to put the username in using the forward slash /

When I say it never makes it to the gateway I mean IE doesn't seem to understand the formatting and I don't see anything logged on the Gateway.
