FTP I cannot connect
« on: November 13, 2012, 23:12:48 »
I am unable to get FTP to work on MC. I have filled in:
ftp site, username, and password. I cannot connect.
(However I have no problem with FTP on Total Commander).
What am I doing wrong?

What does the FTP log say? . if you behind a firewall /route you might also need to check "Use Passive Mode"

Passive mode checked. Results as follows:

2012-11-14 14:36:14 = Connection to site : ftp.fryettarchitect.com  on port 216
2012-11-14 14:36:14 = The requested name is valid, but no data of the requested type was found.

2012-11-14 14:36:22 = Connection to site : ftp.fryettarchitect.com  on port 216
2012-11-14 14:36:22 = The requested name is valid, but no data of the requested type was found.

That is a system error message from windows, that means that it finds a DNS entry for the requested domain name when doing IP lookup. But it did not receive an IP address in that entry.
I would guess that maybe you have a firewall\router that messes with the DNS requests ?

A workaround might be to entire the IP address instead of domain name.

Used the FTP address.

2012-11-19 13:13:53 = Connection to site : 216.16.233.197 on port 21
2012-11-19 13:13:54 < 220 Microsoft FTP Service
2012-11-19 13:13:54 > USER FryettArchitects
2012-11-19 13:13:54 < 331 Password required for FryettArchitects .
2012-11-19 13:13:54 > PASS (hidden)
2012-11-19 13:13:54 < 530 User FryettArchitects  cannot log in.
2012-11-19 13:13:54 = Command failed

I can't tell why it does not work for you.

FTP has been test against many FTP servers and I have not had any logging in issues.

Might be settings related. Might be server user account related, or that the FTP server does not support the login method.
Unfortunately it is impossible for me to know what might cause your issue.
