Hey guys, I told a mate of mine that i wanted to build a website. So what better way to learn than to learn by doing! so that's what im trying to do. I have some space on his webserver, i have a staged URL for testing and i downloaded an FTP client. The problem im having is with the FTP client, it wont connect to the FTP...the fields i have are this... Host.......the support site suggests to put ftp.mydomain.com.au User........i put mydomain.com.au Password ..i put my main login password anyway, using all the different details i have. the outcomes i get are... Status: Waiting to retry... Status: Resolving address of ftp.rocksh.customers.ilisys.com.au Status: Connecting to 126.96.36.199:21... Error: Connection timed out or Status: Waiting to retry... Status: Delaying connection due to previously failed connection attempt... Status: Resolving address of ftp.rockstarter.com.au Status: Connection attempt failed with "EAI_NONAME - Neither nodename nor servname provided, or not known". and the best possible outcome so far has been..it 'connected, waited for welcome message and then timed out' any ideas guys?
