FTP setup

Hi all,

I have previously used AceFTP 3, for the upload of files, to my site.

I have installed a new hard drive and reinstalled this programme. Now I can't seem to 'connect' to the Plusnet server, using the settings below, taken from Plusnets FTP setup guide:-

Host: ftp.plus.net
ID mrooke
P/W (Plusnet password)

Has anyone any ideas why I can't now connect to the FTP site?

Thanks in anticipation.

Hi Mick,

Firstly, since its a "new" installation. Could your firewall be blocking ftp access or your ftp client from getting online?

Secondly you could try ftp2.plus.net.

I am having no issues with ftp, so it would not seem to be a PN problem.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for your quick response.

It was indeed Windows firewall that was stopping it. I have turned it off and all seems OK. I never for 1 minute thought it was Plusnet, hence I never raised a ticket.

I thought I'd have got a warning from the Firewall, letting me know it was blocking the FTP.

Thanks again.

Mick..

Not with windows firewall you won't. Best way is to disable it and get a better firewall!

Hi Flashasp, I used to use Zonealarm Pro but was just using the windows one until I got the PC back up and running. Zonealarm is now on and the windows one is now off.

Gdgd. I suppose you can never be too careful even if not having a firewall for 2/3 hours while installing stuff these days Sad
