FIXED!, Cant access website via ftp/cant view site





shfrorau
I cant access my sites ftp.
It just comes up with that it cant find the page.
Ive tried resetting and changing browser, neither has worked. :S
Any suggestions/help appriciated.

EDIT:
Also frihost.com will work, but frihost.org will not.
ftp://shfrorau.frihost.org/ will work
But ftp.shfrorau.frihost.org will not work
Neither will connect via dreamweaver
I have windows 7 beta BTW

(I AM ON SERVER 4)

ADMIN works, but ftp wont.
The FTP used to work, but just stopped recently.
I can use a bunch of other programs to access the FTP, but i would prefer to use dreamweaver..
Now i cant view my site xD


EDIT!!!!!!!!!:

By looking around, this website suggest that i set my IP to a static.
I set the DNS server to my website IP and my alternative to my original IP.
I dont know why this is, but now it will work.

For others here is the process:
Control panel>connection status>properties>internet protocol

Use following IP address and Following DNS Server Address:
For me i had used. To find this info go to Run>CMD>Ipconfig /all
IP Address: 192.168.1.2**
Subnet Mask:225.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.2**

DNS server 216.32.85.170 (website dns)
alternate DNS: 192.168.1.2** (original DNS)

It seems the website dns being put in allows me to access my website, and the alternate dns allows my computer to resolve other address such as msn, etc.

Hope this works.

for better steps
Another website to get ideas from would also be.
Portforward.com

I am also using dreamweaver and it is working fine. I have same problem before but when I set "Use Passive FTP" in "Remote info" it is working OK.

If your talking about settings in dreamweaver, didn't work =P
sonam
Yes, I think on setting in Dreamweaver. Did you set in "Remote Info": Access - "FTP" and FTP Host - "www.shfrorau.frihost.org".

Sonam
shfrorau
Yeah, its all like that, even with little variations i've tried.
"An FTP error occurred - cannot make connection to host.
The remote host cannot be found."

Keep in mind i can no longer even look at my website now...
IT does work, others can see it and it can work via proxy, but directly i cant view it :\
sonam
Ok, I think you must restart your router because problem is in your IP. Just pull out power cabble from router (don't turn off power switch). Wait ten or more minutes and then plug in.
