Assuming you entered the correct ip address for "Host" and 21 (the default) for "Port," I can't think of anything you might be doing wrong, unless perhaps your web hosting service requires that you use sftp or something like that to upload files (I can't imagine why they would).
So ... I would make sure of a few things: 1) That you've entered the correct ip for your web space at "Host," that you've entered "21" at "Port," and that you are entering the correct username and password. Beyond that I can't imaging what could be wrong, assuming that up until now you've been able to upload using Windows and haven't made any relevant hardware changes (e.g. adding a router).
I'm puzzled, because I can't get this to work. I didn't know about Port 21, so thanks for that.
My settings are:
Host: web.ukonline.co.uk (I've also input this as 'http://web.ukonline.co.uk
', but GFTP reverts this to 'web.ukonline.co.uk' when I refresh.
Button with (FTP, FTPS, HTTP, HTTPS, Local, SSH2, FSP): HTTP (if I choose anything else from the list, GFTP just reverts to HTTP on refresh.
The error message I get is:
<address>Apache/2.0.50 (FreeBSD) Server at web.ukonline.co.uk Port 80</address>
HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden
Date: Sun, 08 Jun 2008 10:50:56 GMT
Server: Apache/2.0.50 (FreeBSD)
Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1
Disconnecting from site web.ukonline.co.uk
a) why is it referring to Port 80?
b) Why is it forbidding access when my username and password are correct?
c) the above http link in this post gets the same result, but one would expect that, as no username or password is included.
d) I've tried all the following in the Host window:
all with Port 21, and correct username and password.
Every time I get the same error message.
