Using URL in browser defaults to ftp://

Whenever I type the URL of my installation in a web browser it defaults to connecting via the ftp protocol instead of http or https. I've tried in both Chrome and Firefox, on different machines, and after clearing the browser cache and restarting; is there something I need to do differently?

If you use a domain that starts with "ftp" and you don't specify a protocol when typing in the DNS name, the browser will assume FTP.

So...since your using a DNS name like that, you have to type "http://" in front of the DNS.

Thanks,
Ben

Ok, that makes sense, thanks Ben!
