    SMARTFTP issues

    Hi

    I am trying FTPing from work onto one of our website hosting people. I really can't get to connect at all, it goes as far as connected to their server but then it tells me that the host server cancelled the operation.

    I know there is no fault on the host server as i can connect fine from home using smartftp, its just from work.

    We use EMBC which is now synetrix, and they have a proxy settings. Does anyone know how to get around this?

    Is there a setting i need to change on my FTP software?

    as a side-step to the issue have you tried filezilla client?

    its a free open source ftp client it might get around the problem

    hope this helps

    You may have to connect via your RBCs proxy and/or use passive mode.

    Hi,

    Connection to Synetrix server works no problem for us WITHOUT using the proxy.

    I just installed SMARTFTP and i guess its just a question of putting the host name then the username and password. Is that correct? Or do i have to configure the FTP software?

    No configuration needed if you're connecting to an internal (internal to EMBC) hostname.

    N:\>ftp web2.embc.uk.com
    Connected to web2.embc.uk.com.
    220 Microsoft FTP Service
    User (web2.embc.uk.comnone)):
    At the most basic level, it works here.
