Create a Hyperlink in the custom fields for an FTP site

I need to create a custom Hyperlink in a custom tab that I have already created.  I can create e-mail hyperlinks and HTTP hyperlinks since these are provided in the tools for custom fields.  However, I can not create a hyper link to an FTP site.  Is this possible? Is the information located in one of the asp pages or something?  I thought I might be able to create a HTTP hyperlink, and then find the code, and edit the code to reflect the correct FTP path. The FTP site would be different for any contact entered into the database. Any thoughts?

 

I am using Act 2008 (Version 10.0.3.139)

Server 2003 R2 Standard Edition

 

Thanks,

Robert

Sorry, forgot to mention that this is Act for Web.

Create a Web Site field and put in ftp://domain.com

 

Ouch.. I just tested this. It works in the Windows client, but adds http:// to the beginning

 

I'll have to report it as a bug

 

You might have a different build... can you see if you get the same?

Does anyone have any thoughts about FTP hyperlinks?
