Filezilla and mapped network drives

So Filezilla doesn't like network drives.  That's probably a bit harsh and it's just that windows hides a lot of the mess behind the connection.  There is a helpful stickyed post for how to set this up on the official support forum and would be worth following if there is a need to transfer to the mapped drive location.  However, if the transfer is coming from the location to a remote FTP site, you will find addressing the network location using the UNC directly will suffice.

\\[server name]\location

Type it into the local site (sic) box and it's job done! =)

Okay, so now what?

This blog has been sitting here unused for a while and I thought it was about time I put it to work.  I've been  using a private blog as a learning journal recently and it seems to work well so I've decided I would use this one as a bit of a technical notebook.  I tried keeping it all on Google Drive, but it got messy.

I expect it will mostly contain solutions to problems that I haven't been able to find elsewhere, or to consolidate information from different sources, but we'll see.  I'll be writing it for myself, so it's not necessarily going to get deep or complicated, just stuff I could do without forgetting, but I want to leave it public on the of chance somebody may find it useful.
