Thanks guys. @ken_yap: OK I’m usingthis for testing purposes: ftp://www.domainname.com
That’s bare bones.
If I use Konqueror I’m asked for username/password and can attach no hassles. So then I try Nautilus and am asked for username/password and supply same creds as in Konqueror but I get this message: “The folder contents could not be displayed. Sorry …etc… could not connect to host.”
@malcolmlewis. I run this command as a normal user: /usr/lib/gvfs/gvfsd-ftp
The return I get from the console is this:
Added new job source 0x807e818 (GVfsBackendFtp)
Queued new job 0x807f818 (GVfsJobMount)
send_reply, failed: 1
Mount failed: No hostname specified
And my Desktop switches to Gnome.
I’ll log out now and try to get back in as KDE4 rotfl!
That was temporary. The desktop switched back after a delay while I watched — strange. Anyway, after running /usr/lib/gvfs/gvfsd-ftp as a notrmal user I then ran the ftp in Nautilus and got the same error message. I also ran the command /usr/lib/gvfs/gvfsd-ftp as root but got a strange message as follows:
Error connecting to D-Bus: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
Any further thoughts anyone?
[thank goodness Konqy works and I’m doing Nautilus out of curiosity]
I’ve just verified that the ftp address works in the address bar of nautilus in Ubuntu 9.04. But it still doesn’t work in Nautilus in openSUSE. In openSUSE, ps -aux | grep gvfsd shows the following processes:

I can confirm that is not working
Running gnome (opensuse 11.1), nautilus can connect to anonymous ftp sites
and list folders, but when accessing an external vsftp server I had, after
login with username and password it says “it cannot display the content of
folder… cannot connect to host”
In the same computer, that same action just works well with firefox, for
