FTP disconnection all the time

Has anyone else got this problem? I log on to my ftp space and get disconnected more or less immediately, some folders show up as empty although I know they are not and at the moment not even the root shows up...

Re: FTP disconnection all the time

FTP to ccgi or www webspace?
If www try ftp2.plus.net which is an alternate FTP server which may be more compatible with your FTP client.
Have you also tried the DOS FTP client to see if that does the same thing? start -> run -> cmd then enter ftp ftp.plus.net (for www) in the DOS box.

>have not tried dos but tried 2 other ftp clients, same result. It's currently a bit better, but it's been really off in the last 2 days. Never had that kind of thing happen before...

Re: FTP disconnection all the time

Are you running a software firewall other than windows? If so try disabling it for a test to see if that is causing the problems.

Set your ftp-programme to "active". "Passive" caused a lot of problems in my case.

Re: FTP disconnection all the time

OK, some more info
- tried it with or without (non-Windows) firewall, no difference
- I am using Total Commander as my ftp client which has worked fine for years, so doubt it's that. Just in case, have also tried a Firefox plugin called FireFTP or Coreftp - same problems, it not worse
- setting the ftp program to "active" or "passive" does not make any difference
It was OK for about 1/2h last night, tonight it's back to being unusable again. Anyone from plusnet got an asnwer?
