Are you using active mode in your ftp settings? Passive mode does not work.
That depends on what ftp client you're using. You will normally be able to change the options within the settings menu. Try FILE or EDIT and look for PREFERENCES.
OK, I got it.
Is smartFTP good to use with it?
CuteFtp works the best for me try that
Filezilla is the best for frih.net servers
oh is it? ill have 2 download it then
thanks for the tip
i download and install them but TIME OUT is once problem
I am having a similar problem. At first I was using ipswitch but couldn't find the settings for the passive and active mode so I decided to download FileZilla as mention here. I unchecked passive mode on it and it still gives me an error.
It logs in fine but when it's supposed to list the directory it can't.
Here's the error:
Error: Timeout detected!
Error: Could not retrieve directory listing
Am I doing something wrong?
I use SmartFTP... In the middle of uploading files I get this message:
500 ST not understood
I get this every single time i try to upload more than one file at a time. I'm not in passive mode.
FTP on Frihost are having a hard problem.
Hey man try Fizela is so easy to use, and i think it is the best one!
From my testing over the past couple days, Firezilla is temperamental but it works.
I think this thread should be sticky also. I used many hostings but this is teh first time I heard about "passive mode".
