jibi thanhs a lot for the quick response. I tried your suggestion and yes though the site is accessed via gttp, when i put the username: password@ site.com with the http:// in front it said that was an invalid url name and would not go ahead. I also tried http://ftp.site.com/username:password
and that did not work. My problem is that i was trying to download images and ringtones i had placed there to download to the BB, so it is not a life or death situation. But at any rate thanks for your nice attempt.
