Hi I have just purchased ws_ftp, thinking it will straight forward to setup. But on the contrary I am finding it difficult.

I am on ntl broadband and they have advice they don’t support ftp service, but were selling their own. I have taken the tutorial for the ftp and simulated an upload and default. I am clueless how to ftp as what hostname and username and password do I input?

Do I have to register for an ftp service ?

Help?

click here

Your FTP is

upload.ntlworld.com

Your ueser name is your email name... eg

paul.smith

as in [email protected]

and the password is your email password.

Ops I meant to put a space in the email name.... just in case there is a paul smith with ntl please accept my appologies.

The user name is wrong...just use the first part not "@ntlworld.com"

Your user name is normally in two parts with a full stop in the middle.

I am also on NTL Broadband but I use Cute ftp to upload and download and edit my web site. I have not had any problems at all. I also have Norton Firewall running at the same time and AVG anti virus is running.

The way I do it is to log on to NTL BB and then minimise it. Then log on to your ftp and try from there.

tried that too wont work..
i am at a deadend..i think i would call up ntl . that is if i get thru to the bloomin call center..

  AndySD 18:33 06 Feb 2003

The password is hidden so others cant see it ....dont worry about that.

As far as I know all accounts with ntl are user.name try you origonal name
