FTP Connection Problem - Going Round in Circles!

  Charlie Babbage 14:41 21 Jun 2006

Yesterday I installed Cute FTP Home and managed to connect to my freespace area with Virgin.net, first time without a problem.

Today, when I try to connect, I get a dialog box headed 'upload.virgin.net: 21' which shows my username but the password box is blank. I insert the password, click ok but then the same dialog box appears again!

It is similar if I use IE v 6.0 and enter the address click here. A 'Log On As' dialog box appears. I enter my user name and password, click ok but then the same dialog box apears again.

I have not made any changes to my computer since installing Cute FTP and testing that last night.

Any assitance in curing this annoying problem would be much appreciated.

I'm sure you haven't forgotten the password, just wondered what this program would reveal

Just a suggestion - try reinstalling CUTE ftp again and repeating the connection procedure. I did this with WS_FTP and now have two programs installed which connect to my two websites.

... the problem has now resolved itself! I guess there may have been a problem at the Virgin.net end
