FTP - Pulling my Hair Out!
We use EMBC and I'm trying to connect to an FTP server hosting a website. For some reason I can not access them to save my life! I've been working on a fix all week with no luck.
My host said it's not them as everybody else in the world can connect. They've checked their "blacklist" to ensure we're not banned. They've given me various server names I could connect to and Ip addresses incase it's a bad DNS record. I've flushed our DNS server cache.
I contact EMBC and they said it's the host. So I've just brought another cheapy host and still I cannot connect! I've brought another domain name encase EMBC have filtered it or something.
My theory is that the port is blocked at EMBC's level. I don't get an error message, My FTP clients just hang on "Trying to connect to server..." then it times out.
Firewall's disabled, anti-virus removed - I've literally tried everything plus more knowing it's not nothing to do with it.
I can't seem to get through to anybody else regarding this issue at EMBC. The lady on the front desk has been pretty patient with me calling up these past 2-3times with suggestions but it doesnt get elevated any further. She tested it her end and it also worked fine.
Arg, someone please tell me there's a port block or something so I can go back with something as they're no longer prepared to spend any more time helping me. I don't want to be rude to the lady on the font desk and ask to speak to someone else. I think she's new, so I have no idea of her technical abilities but I've dealt with some engineers before who could help me when the first line support couldnt.
Please help, I can't sleep at night :( :eek:
TRIED PASSIVE MODE AND SFTP TOO :(
