FTP Problem - can't sign in

I've asked the technical support bods a couple of times about this, and have basicallyt got cryptic answers that were as much use as a chocolate teapot...

I try to connect to cgi.force9.net using ftp and my usual user id and password but the password is always rejected. I've also tried crofters.force9.net and get the same result.

Can anybody help?

thanks in anticipation,
Gwyn

RE: FTP Problem - can't sign in

Your CGI password expires every 100 days, perhaps this is the problem. If so, you'll need to use Hyperterminal (Start-> Programs-> Accessories-> Communication -> Hyperterminal) to change it.

Host Address: crofters.force9.net
Port Number:23
Connect Using: TCP/IP (Winsock

Then put the new password in your FTP details.

Thanks for your suggestion, but it hasn't worked from Day 1. I tried your Hyperterminal idea but that just gave me the same response. I've now contacted F9 Support again who are looking into the problem
