Accessing Remote Folder in Windows 8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I work in a home office and there has been a problem connecting to a remote folder.  Like an FTP site, (and what I have done with PCs with OS ranging from XP to 7 as well as Macs) I have entered the address and the connection continues without a problem, creating the folder after a few more steps.

    Windows 8, however, keeps sending the error message that the web address is not valid.  The same steps are being followed and in the same way, but that address is not recognized.

    In the firewall, I adjusted the settings for the Inbound rules so it can ping, but that still sent back the same message.

    Does anyone have any ideas how I can get this to work?
