gFTP stopped working


No idea why gFTP suddenly, without any error messages, stopped connecting to my site. It still connects anywhere else, but ignores my own website. All seems to be correct: domain, user, password etc. Any ideas?

Can you get into it with other ftp software, (like lftp, sftp) or with remote login (like rlogin, ssh)? If not, maybe the server is down, or there's a problem with your account.

I don't know how to use lftp. The server isn't down. They checked it, and they tell they can connect to it with WS_FTP.
I have no ssh access to it...

Have you tried connecting to it using WS_FTP yourself? Sure, it's great if *they* can connect to it, but that doesn't do you any good.

If you have lftp or ftp installed, it's pretty easy to use them. Just open up a console and type:

ftp server.host.name (it prompts for username and password)
or
lftp username@server.host.name (prompts for password)

You don't really have to know much about using either of them - mostly I was thinking you could just use them to test whether your username/password still work. If not, then it sounds like you need to talk to your website provider...

Thanks for the instruction! lftp could not connect. gftp doesn't either. It is strange because it worked perfectly fine a few days ago. I asked a friend who has ws_ftp to check the connectivity to my website and he could do it.

shame upon my grey hair.... gFTP was blocked by my firewall, installed and configured recently.

gFTP, of course, works as great as it always did!

I guess that would do it. Though, for some reason my firewall has never caused any ftp trouble... mine must be less secure shh, don't tell anyone.
