Site ok but FTp unaccessable :s





PriDe
This is very unusual..I can access my site and it works perfectly! however when i try to upload through FTP i'm recieving an error!!

Code:

[21:02:27] [R] Connecting to ftp.festakunvent.frih.net -> IP=216.32.85.170 PORT=21
[21:02:28] [R] Connection failed (Connection refused)
[21:02:28] [R] Delaying for 5 seconds before reconnect attempt #1


I had just connected via FTP yesterday and uploaded a couple of files which work correctly but it seems like my ip has been banned by the server or something Sad Any idea of what might be wrong??

Thanks for your support
scotty
I get that too sometimes. Mainly at 3 past the hour ie. 9:03am. I don't know what that is but just upload again and it works.

i simply cannot access my FTp .. I cannot upload anything on the server Sad

I've tried again last night and this morning and still no breakthrough. I'm using FlashFXP as an FTP managerand had not trouble accessing the ftp section for the past month however it's always giving me the same error now:

Code:
[21:02:27] [R] Connecting to ftp.festakunvent.frih.net -> IP=216.32.85.170 PORT=21
[21:02:28] [R] Connection failed (Connection refused)

You need to create an FTP account and use that username and password. Razz Not your hosting account name and password.

SpellcasterDX
Hmm. Try swtiching from "Active Mode" to "Passive Mode".

Or vice-versa. I'm not sure.
matrixuk321
where is active mode and passive mode
matrixuk321
i have tryed this with 3 ftps it wont work with any. i realy need to login
mathiaus
That depends on your ftp client. Please refer to this thread for help on this topic.

matrixuk321
i have already looked at that and read it but it doesnt help me
SpellcasterDX
I don't know. I use FileZilla, so I wouldn't know. But I'd have to guess it'd be under options or preferences.
matrixuk321
ive just downloade filezilla and it said this when i tryed logging in


Status: Connecting to ftp.brothersunited.frih.net ...
Error: Unable to connect!

matrixuk321
is it supposed to be port 21 because that is what it is on
SpellcasterDX
Yes it is. Port 21 is the default FTP port. Are you sure you're putting in everything right?

Or it could be a firewall issue. Make sure your firewall is configured to let port 21 through.
matrixuk321
how do i make it do that

EDIT*: on fileZille i put:

Host: brothersunited.frihost.net

servertype FTP

Logon type normal


User : matrix@brothersunited.frih.net
Pass : ******
SpellcasterDX
Go to your firewall and either disable it or configure it to allow access to port 21. (Also disable/configure the windows firewall if you're using Windows)

I don't know how to configrue a firewall, you'd need to ask someone for help on this.
matrixuk321
i tryed disabling it and didnt work
matrixuk321
can someone like tell me what the

Sername is
Username is
Password is
and any other stuff


so i can login and make my website pls !!


*EDIT* I will need an admin or moderator
matrixuk321
Please someone i need to have made it by 1 week
Animal
Ok, calm down. 3 posts within 20 mins is a bit over the top - we'll help you if we can.

The host should be ftp.brothersunited.frih.net although ftp.frih.net will also work.

matrixuk321 wrote:

Your username (that we gave you to log into Direct Admin) does not require the @brothersunited.frih.net suffix. Just use your username matrixuk and your DA password.

This is wrong.

However, it's possible that this is a firewall issue - depending on where you're connecting from (eg. School, College, work etc) the required ports may be blocked by the network admin.
SpellcasterDX
Well, did you disable all firewalls on your computer?

An alternate solution would be to go to www.net2ftp.com
and upload your files with that. Smile (Using the login details from the FTP account you created)

EDIT: Oh. Sorry Animal. Thats what I did to upload files, and it worked. That's why I suggested that.
matrixuk321
that does not work either Sad

Status: Connecting to brothersunited.ftp.frih.net ...
Error: Unable to connect!

can you try connect for me or upload the Php nuke for me pls


EDIT

I've tried both WS_FTP and CuteFTP, but neither gets me in.
I didn't copy the log for WS_FTP, but here's the CuteFTP one.
Code:
STATUS:>[10/29/2006 3:36:28 PM] Getting listing
STATUS:>[10/29/2006 3:36:28 PM] Resolving host name ftp.nubbed.frih.net
STATUS:>[10/29/2006 3:36:28 PM] Host name ftp.nubbed.frih.net resolved: ip=216.32.85.170
STATUS:>[10/29/2006 3:36:28 PM] Connecting to FTP server...ftp.nubbed.frih.net:21
ERROR:>[10/29/2006 3:36:49 PM] Can't connect to remote server. Socket error=#10065

So it finds the server but can't connect.
It doesn't work w/ PASV enabled/disabled or my firewall enabled/disabled.
It's been like this for awhile now, probably a month.
Hope it's something simple I missed that'll get this all working...

Edit: Here's what GScape had to say in their help file...
Quote:
WSAESERVERUNREACH (10065)
The server is unreachable. Verify that the destination host name or IP address is correct and try again later.
matrixuk321
use net2ftp.com it works really good
mathiaus
If you can access the File Manager in Direct Admin theres no need for FTP. Just upload a tar.gz file (in DA) and then extract it. Quicker than doing it file by file and saves b/w our side and yours!
