I am having some problem to get file from URL (of a unix server) with password.
I keep on getting this error: "FileNotFoundException"
However, if I enter the url in the Internet Explorer,
I am able to access the file.

My code is as follow:

BufferedInputStream input = null;
BufferedOutputStream output = null;

try {

String address = "ftp://username assword@myunixftpserver.domain.com/home/dir/myfile.zip";
URL url = new URL(address);
URLConnection conn = url.openConnection();

//I got the ERROR at this code below
input = new BufferedInputStream(conn.getInputStream());


What could be the possible problem?
Thanks in advance for your advise.

Best regards
