FTP question

  BAZZER007 16:52 01 Mar 2005

Iam using the program Serv-U and have a FTP server running at the moment but i have no idea how to connect to it from another computer.Iam also using a program called WS-FTP-PRO this program connects to the other program.

Do people need a simular program to connect to my FTP? WS-FTP-PRO

Try putting your post on the Webdesign Forum, you may get a better response.

your question correctly you have a FTP server running on your computer and you wish to connect to it from another computer, yes/no?

If this is the case to connect to the FTp site simply open up internet explorer and type the following into the address bar:

click here;insert domain or ip address here>

It is likely that you will have to enter a password unless you have allowed anonymous access.

Hope this helps.

yes i have a ftp server running but i can't connect to it,i've tried the link you gave me but it comes up with the error message.
ftp folder error
windows cannot access this folder.
server name or address could not be resolved.

it has got a little "mangled"!

This is what it should be (without the spaces):

ftp:// <domainnameoripaddress>

Are you using a router?

If you are you need to make sure that ports 20 and 21 are both forwarded to your pc running the ftp server.

have you given access to the folders?

No problem
Some help is better than non.
I'am using the BT voyager router and i've been trying for so time to get hold of BT for help.So thay can give me a password to access the cnnfiguration setting.
Thanx James

Serv-u FTP is realy simple to setup and use, so I would think that jp1990 is probably on the right rack with it being the port setup that needs attention and not the Serv-u settings itself
