In CS3 how do I configure a Dreamweaver site to use Contribute?

I can "put" files to an FTP server using Dreamweaver, but using the same connection info for Contribute, I get the Error message "successfully connected to site but unable to transfer files, there may be a firewall restriction (not possible) or the network is down (also not possible)"  I get the same message within Dreamweaver when I try to set up the site to "Administer with Contribute" I must be using the right server directory since the "put" function works in Dreamweaver.

When you configure a site for Contribute, what you are doing is creating a whole bunch of new files and folders on the web server that both programs use to manage permissions, store rollback pages, etc.  If your ISP or firewall has restrictions on creating folders or assigning permissions to things, you might see that message even though straight FTP works.

Thanks for quick reply. I checked with ISP he says my site is on a public IP with no firewall. It's probably something I have configured wrong.  Any other ideas?

In the FTP settings for both DW and Contribute, make sure you are using Passive FTP and that FTP Performance Optimization is turned off

Thanks for your help.  Your suggestions helped me conclude that my problem was really at the ISP.  I loaded the site on a different server and it works fine.
