FTP error using Dreamweaver
Posted on 2007-11-19
I'm using Dreamweaver CS3 on a Mac. It worked no problem for a week and a half then I stopped being able to connect via FTP. It gives me the following warning.
An FTP error occured - cannot make connection to host.
No response from the server. This may be due to one or more of the following reasons:
- Accessing the server requires firewall settings that aren't properly set. Please verify that the firewall in the Site category of the Preferences dialog box are properly set, and that the Use Firewall option in the Site definition dialog box is selected.
- The server may be accepting only passive mode or only active mode. Toggle the "Use Passive FTP" checkbox may help you establish a connection.
- Your local firewall may be blocking the incoming FTP data. Please disable it to see if it makes a difference.
- It is possible your FTP may be using a non-standard FTP port (21). If you need to specify a non-standard port, enter the port number after the host name separated by a colon ":".
I tried many variations without luck, my hosting service suggested re-installing DW which I did, again without luck. I am able to connect with Filezilla and Adobe GoLive with no problem.
I'd appreciate any help anybody can give me before my head explodes...
