    Unhappy Particular website blocked for ftp?

    Having a strange problem with FTP to my own website, all was working fine last month now I can't get access to it or telnet to check it from my laptop. I tried it from another laptop and all seems OK. This was checked via dial up, and wireless connection via the home router, yet when I use my own laptop using dial up, router network or wireless router network its no go! so I presume it down to a setting on my laptop. Now I can ftp into my isp based website OK and my schools ftp (on another provider) ok from my laptop, so any ideas where I need to look to solve the problem? Checked with hosting company (yes I know its FastHosts!) and they say all is OK checked using and internal and external connection check so its something at my end, which the laptop trial seems to prove, just don't know where to look now?

    If you're connecting via hostname, check the hostsfile to see if its statically pointing elsewhere.

    More likely though is that your firewall software has decided to block access to the host which iirc would make sense as fasthosts has a diff ip for their ftp and http sites so it wouldn't have become apparent until now.

    HTH.
