But you have to re-enter the password at each directory that you change to. So for example you login to your own ftp you would type ftp://email@example.com and you are given a prompt for your password. You enter the password and you can continue. You select a directory, but again you are asked for your password again. Indeed, it seems that every time you want to switch directories you are again asked for your password if the directory isn't cached. The problem can be fixed (a temporary fix) by using login:firstname.lastname@example.org instead of just email@example.com, so wsbg:firstname.lastname@example.org would fix it, while email@example.com would exhibit the problem. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.enter <YourLogin>@YourFTPServer.com (login name must have password defined) 2.enter password 3.try to change directory Actual Results: It asked me to enter my password seeming for every single directory that wasn't in my cache. Expected Results: Asked me for my password once, cache it in memory (not disk), and not ask for it again until I logout of the FTP server.
