Cannot connect via FTP. Have tried everything...





Editorinchief
I think at this point a moderator or someone who really knows what they are talking about should read this...

I am trying to connect to my account at: ftp.streetpaper.frih.net. I use port 21, I use my correct login and pass. I uncheck passive connections, and I have used filezilla, SmartFTP, and even FlashFXP which many people said would work. Still no luck. Here is the message I keep getting from FlashFXP:

Quote:
[R] Connecting to ftp.streetpaper.frih.net -> DNS=ftp.streetpaper.frih.net IP=216.32.85.170 PORT=21
[R] Connection failed (No route to Host)


Can someone help me out here? Maybe I just need a new DNS?

EDIT: Trying my account without the ftp in front of it still gives me the same problem, so that point is irrelevant.

EDIT: I also noticed some recent posts about server 2 wierdness. Unfortunately, I have not been able to connect for the last TWO MONTHS. I am on server 2 also though.


I have done the obvious steps, like making sure the firewall is not blocking the FTP program.

Should I be doing something more advanced like connecting to an IP, or perhaps going to a certain path? I have no idea, and all this complication is really pushing me to just ditch this Frih.net account since I can't use it.

I use smartFTP and I just checked and i have my address without the ftp.
So try your address as "streetpaper.frih.net"

Ok I recommend downloading a thing called Core FTP Lite.
First of all you need an ftp client such as Core FTP Lite. Search on google for download. *Note: Core FTP Lite is a free client while its home edition and pro edition are not.
After you have that downloaded install it and run.
I assume you have a frihost host already and you have a site subdomain or domain along with your accuont details.
Ok when you start a new conection you should enter the following details:

IP/HOSTNAME: ftp.Yoursite.frih.net (NOT JUST yoursite.frih.net)
Also* In your account it shows a IP type number URL which you could use.
USERNAME: Your selected username given
PASSWORD: Your selected Password given
Port 21 is defualt.

Try connecting with that.

Yes I have a frihost already and all the account details. All I have done now is add yet another FTP program to my list of FTP programs that will not work. The IP was also something I tried with all of the other programs and this one now as well. This is obviously a bigger problem, and so far no moderators have given this their time to try and solve this for me...

I doesnt matter now, I can connect through Windows FTP client. I would switch to some other software but I find its easest just to go thorugh run in Windows


Thanks for all of your help though, anyway

Try a traceroute to frih.net server, run the following in your command prompt :
Code:
tracert ftp.streetpaper.frih.net


Are you able to connect to any ftp at all ?
Try connecting to ftp://ftp.geocities.com (no need for username/password) to make sure ftp isn't getting blocked off in your connection firewall.

FTP is not working for me either.

Check that you are not blocking the ip 216.32.85.170 in f.ex. PeerGuardian or other blocking-programs. 216.32.85.170 is actually on their blocking-list, and have been for ca 2 months now!

Well that fixed it right up, any clue as to why the Frihost FTP is being blocked on Peer Guardian?
