Using TIdFTP, I can commect to the server, but cannot login because I
do not have access to the root directory, and the server does not
redirect me to a directory to which I have access rights.  I can find
no way to select the initial directory with TIdFTP.

I tried connecting, then changing the directory, but the server will
not allow this until I log in.

Also tried appending the directory name to the host, but this also fails.

Since I can login on other servers, I believe I have set up the control
properly, and I am able to login to the "problem" server using
commercial ftp programs which allow me to set the initial directory.

Anyone have a solution to this?

Thanks in advance.
