Just got account





AffroThund3r
Hi,

Just got my account - http://www.grfx.frih.net.

When I try and log in at http://www.grfx.frih.net:2222 or through the IP address that I was provided with I get a connection error in my web browser.
I cannot connect through FTP either

Any ideas?

Both work fine for me. Dont forget they may take a while to propegate fully. The email provided an ip alternative which should work otherwise use the http://frih.net:2222 one (same user and pass)

Also http://cp.frih.net/ if nothing else works.
AffroThund3r
Awesome, thanks guys
AffroThund3r
Any ideas why I cannot connect to my FTP?!

Your port is blocked by the isp maybe? I have no idea what could cause this.

Maybe try to type "ftp frih.net" in the command screen and look what you get as a response. (start menu, in run type cmd)

I've connected to other web space that I've had in the past with WS_FTP with no probs.

Code:
C:\Documents and Settings\******>ftp ftp.frih.net
> ftp: connect :Unknown error number
ftp>


I have set up port 21 on my router and on my firewall. But no lights are flashing on my router.

Thanks

It's "ftp frih.net" without only one ftp. (not ftp ftp.frih.net)
AffroThund3r
Still getting this:

Code:
C:\Documents and Settings\*****>ftp frih.net
> ftp: connect :Unknown error number
ftp>


This is really annoying, considering that other FTP accounts have worked without any issues.

Just lettme confuse myself further.

Try this

Code:
ftp ftp.frih.net
AffroThund3r
I've tried that in one of my previous posts.
Bondings
But you can see your website http://www.grfx.frih.net and control panel right? If yes, that means that your ip wasn't banned from the server.
AffroThund3r
I can see my web site and log into direct admin through http://cp.frih.net

Thanks

P.S. Sorry about this, but FTP access is quite vital too me!! Smile

Try logging in to your ftp account through www.web2ftp.com
AffroThund3r
That site lets me log in, very strange!!

If it helps I am using WS_FTP or Cute FTP to try and log in.

Thanks for the help

Its more than likely a FireWall. Sometimes FTP works for me, sometimes doesn't. www.web2ftp.com however always works for me which shows that its got to be a firewall, or maybe my IP's block.
I would recommend using www.web2ftp.com over any software.

I use the same and like it a lot. I would reccomend that too. Try using that with your ftp account. I can't think of why the other wouldn't work. Did you try it from another computer?

Thanks for the help guys.

Seeing as I can connect to another FTP with the software, I find it hard to understand that it may be a firewall issue or anything else.

I'm trying to upload a number of files that need to stay in various folders and my FTP program would be a massive help for me.

HELP I'm really struggling

The below instructions will automatically unzip a zipped file !!!

If you follow these instructions then it'll be really simple:


1 -
Compress all of your files/folders into *.zip, *.tar, *.tar.gz or *.tgz format

2 -
Go to www.web2ftp.com

3 -
At the first login box enter your server, username and password info, (the server can be in IP format or like the following; ftp.mezmorizing.frih.net)

4 -
Go to the location you want to go by clicking on the appropiate text, (to go to the public_html directory double-click "public_html" for example)

5 -
Half-way down the page on the right hand side you'll see "ZIP-Upload:". Click browse to select the compressed file then press upload.


A little window will then open up telling you the percent complete, (note that you may need to scroll up a little to see it).
If you were to upload the complete phpBB2 2.0.19 forum then it would take less than 15 minutes.

***Note that sometimes it will say "Server Error"....
(When this happens about 5% of the time the connection is for some reason cut short so double-check wether all of the files have been uploaded).

***Also note that you cannot delete files via Web2FTP so you will have to do it yourself through cPanel/DirectAdmin, etc. You can however "Edit", "Rename", "Move", "CHMOD", Download files/folders via "Get" and make a new directory via "mkdir".

Thanks for the help, trying it now!! Smile

Hi,
Does running
Code:
ftp 216.32.85.170

work for you?
AffroThund3r
Nope,

I really cant understand it, I can log into other accounts I have elsewhere through FTP.

The web2tp.com site is good but I would much prefer being able to use on of my FTP programs.

Thanks

Oh, well can't do nothing then. it has to be something with your PC. Rather a firewall is blocking the connection, (note that when you disable a firewall the firewall is still doing some protecting; also note that most PC's have their own firewall) or your IP adress is blocked somehow (note that bondings says your IP address isn't blocked) which means that the first option is probably the answer.

I connect to the net through a router, but have opened up port 21 on that. Any other settings that I should double check?

Use that, enable PASSIVE mode.
AffroThund3r
I've tried that, thanks, still doesn't work!! Smile
