WS_FTP will not upload files

I have recently opened an account with and decided to get to know their standard server.

The account and server place was created OK and I am trying to upload a test file.

I am using WS_FTP and this created a connection to /

However I cannot upload a file and after a few minutes get "Socket Error" showing in WS.

If I connect to my server at Fasthosts I can connect and upload files without any problems.

Can anyone suggest what may be going wrong please.

Many thanks

If I recall, in WSFTP you may have to add the path so instead of using / try /folder1. I know it sounds silly but we had similar problems whenever doing schedule ftp processes.

make sure you have the mode set to passive (PASV) in WS FTP?

Thanks for the help.

I found eventually that I had to create a new ftp account in 1and1 as the one which is created automatically would not allow me to upload.
