Your current security settings do not allow you to download files from this location.

Problem: I was trying to download something from an ftp server to a windows server 2008 box. and received the following error "Your current security settings do not allow you to download files from this location."

Solution: You need to a an exception in the security section of your Internet Explorer Internet Options.

1. Open IE
2. Open Tools > Internet Options > Security
3. Click on Trusted Sites then the sites button below
4. Enter the URL of the site you're downloading from and click add

5. Done. Retry your download.

  1. This worked for me, but I'll add one comment that might help anyone who tries this and finds it's not working.

    You will have to close the windows where your computer files are shown and re-open them for the change to take place else the old settings are still in play with any windows you opened prior to the change.

    Thanks,
