the issue is that this is for a client with several staff and their own customers wanting to share files via FTP. They are moving from one company who currently provide this FTP service and successfully enabling them to just use their web browsers to drag and drop.
although my FTP service is providing ftp client service perfectly well, when I goto a browser it just isnt working at all. So my clients will be forced to use an FTP client which they dont really want to do, they just want to send each other urls to the files to be viewed through web browsers.

That was disabled AFAIK for security fears, which I never understood.
I believe it really depends on the client machine, we previously had the same issues with FTP through explorer when behind NAT, but since we removed NAT here in the office and switched to internet IP's it's worked fine.
Which FTP daemon are you using? I'd suggest switching to PureFTPd if you're currently using ProFTPd.
