"Publish" does not work for me.

I am trying to publish a working web service, but when I push the Publish button, I get nothing.  The web service works fine on my VS 2005 environment, but I must be doing something wrong.

I selected the "http://mydomainname.com" choice.

How do I do the ftp?  Is it "ftp:mydomainname.com" or "ftp.mydomainname.com"?

Any idea what could be wrong?  Is it IIS?  What might it be?

thanks,

if the website is  internal (i.e. on your LAN) you must have a web server settup (using IIS) on the local network that you can FTP to. b (talk to your admin perso for details)

I am the admin person....

this works in FileZilla - "ftp.yourdomain.com"

but when I try it in the Publish Web dialog, I get an error: "The publish target is not a valid disk path or URL.  Invalid URI: The format of the URI could not be determined."
