Tried filezilla but could not connect to co-workers ftp site. So I dowloaded WinSCP 4.0.7 from download.com and it connected one the first try Smile.

Clicked the files I wanted, it showed it was downloading (kinda took a while). Then a window opened up with what I suppose was the downloaded file but it was ya know that file jibberish stuff like this @#@%$%$#%$.

Any thoughs? Thanks in advance my friend...

Exactly what it does, seems to download. That is I get the download progress box. It finishes, then a window with ya know the jibberish open up and, the downloaded file does not show up to the location I've selected??? Is this a bug oer perhaps a seting change?

BTW- thanks for responding so quickly!

Tried downloading again, but this time rather than double-clicking, I dragged and dropped the file I wanted to download. That worked Razz


Guess you just cannot double click Question

Take care

To transfer file by double click, go to preferences.
