FTP not connecting
« on: March 25, 2006, 07:54:14 am »
Has something been changed recently? I was transferring files just fine like ten minutes ago and now it won't connect for anything. The error message I get says the connection has been reset, this is totally new and bizarre.

I'm curious if this is a new policy thing and how I can fix it or what I can do to upload files. I've been using the basic windows ftp method, I'm a bit nervous downloading any programs to use.

I don't know why it'd be resetting connection. You didn't try a bad password a bunch, did you? It works fine from here, so my guess is windows being stupid. (Not unheard of.) I'll say what I usually say when this sort of thing happens... Try http://winscp.sourceforge.net and use the program there.

Wouldn't even let me get to a log in window to type in a password. Though it's working now, so I agree with your windows gone dumb theory. I'll try that program next time though.

Thanks
