I am running an FTP server on my PC. I opened Windows Explorer and navigated to: ftp://127.0.0.1/. I connect and the servers root directory files are displayed, great.

However, from a cmd prompt I am unable to successfully ftp into the server:

C:\>ftp ftp.localhost
Unknown host ftp.localhost.
ftp> bye

C:\>ftp ftp://localhost
Unknown host ftp://localhost.
ftp> bye

C:\>ftp ftp://127.0.0.1
Unknown host ftp://127.0.0.1.
ftp>

How can I fix this problem?
