Could you please tell me what I am doing wrong.  Everytime I try and connect to a server using this application It says error connecting.

WHat am I doing wrong?

Or is their a web-site that has an idiot-proof way of connecting using this application?

Please be more specific.
I figured:
you are using FTP Explorer to send data to a server and it doesn't work

-> have you tried ftp "by hand"?
-> do you have an account on that server?
-> could there be a firewall between you and that server? (Maybe you need pasv mode)

I have got a password and user name etc from the server site but each time I put in the title of the settings ie Tutor tasks and I fill every other field in then click connect the error message still comes up how frustraing as I need to progress onto the next stage of my Dreamweaver course.

Again: Is it possible that there is a firewall between you and the server?

open a "DOS"-Box (or shell or whatever) and type:

ftp theserver

You'll be asked a username and then password.
If this works it's a problem with your settings, if not please post the error message
