I Can't Log On To An FTP??

  pcwhizz 18:59 22 May 2004

I have two hosting accounts, one paid and one free one.

Ones with netfirms and my paid one is with ghoulnet.

But since ive had these addresses i can never log on via FTP prgram, ive tried many programs.

I have been able to log on to FTP's before and now i cant log on to any FTP because ive tried many other hosts to see if it was just bad luck with the two i have and it isnt.

I check all my settings and even been on the phone and had a perosn run through them.

The program always gets to

150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for /bin/ls.

before timing out on every one

Im just annoyed now. So any help would be grateful

Have you made sure the correct connection type is made? E.g. SSL or PASV. And also it is probably better if you send data in BINARY mode rather than ASCII.

any firewalls?
did you set IE to use passave mode as stated above?
