"Contrary to what you would expect, if you untick 'Use Passive FTP' (i.e. disabled) (under 'Control Panel' / 'Internet options' / 'Advanced' tab), then, after a couple of 'Approval' dialog boxes, the target FTP site will be accessible from both Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer.

Rules are auto-added to the Windows Firewall - these rules appear to be the same as one manually added (except they work...).

The same change enables Vista and Windows 7, and works for both anonymous sites and those requiring a username/password."
