Did this work before and just stop or has it never worked?

Hi Jason,
Always worked. I've used dwv.cs3 for years, and managing the same websites.

Contact your hosting provider and ask if they changed anything or are having connectivity problems.  Could just be a transient thing...

Hello,
Back with the same problem. I talked with so many representatives from my company (Godaddy) and no solution. There is nothing wrong in their end.
I also talked and check the internet provided (I am in Buenos Aires, Argentina at this time) and seems to be everything OK.
I also tried to create the site definition over again. Renaming the main folder and re-uploading it.
Usually when I had connectivity problems before, it takes time trying to connect to the remote host until a window shows up saying "Time Out". In this case it happens in two seconds. I tried so many times in different times of the day with no success.
I attach the dreamweaver pop up window again.

It sounds like the ports are blocked somewhere.

Try connecting with a normal FTP client?

Also, there are bugs in CS3 to CS5.5 that may have issues with GoDaddy:

Try configuring Dreamweaver to use SFTP?

Hi Jason,
Yes, I am trying to connect w/normal FTP.  
I did try SFTP
Still the same.
I have been using the same DW, same computer, and site definition, everything the same for years.
I am now outside the US when the trouble started. Only one time I was able to make connection.

There's too many variables in play to really give good assistance.  If it all worked before and suddenly stopped working, it can only be one of three things:

1) Something on your local computer changed
2) Your ISP changed its configuration
3) Your hosting provider changed its configuration

OK,
I don't understand the second possibility. "Your ISP changed its configuration" ? What can I do or try if that's the issue?
Thanks,
r.

It's not anything you have control over.  You need to test the connection from a different location/network/ISP to rule out those factors.  If you cannot connect from anywhere, it's an Adobe or Go Daddy issue
