    Hi All.

    I have made a new installation of the OS on my laptop, and installed VS2012 ultimate. I am trying to connect to my website.

    File -> open website -> FTP site

    I enter the domain name: mydomain.com

    port:21

    Directory: httpdocs

    username and password.

    I am getting the following error.

    Unable to retrieve folder information from the server. Cannot connect with active FTP. Please try using passive FTP.

    then i try passiv, and i get the same error except the please try using passive.

    before i make a new OS installation, I was able to connect, and if i use file zilla it is fine.. 

    do anyone have any idea what this could be..?

    Hi, 

    I am not sure but some idea. Maybe visual studio cannot solve mydomain.com to ftp.mydomain.com can you try ftp.mydomain.com?

    Have a nice day.

    And now?

    That's the first place to start; trying to rule out other issues. So install FileZilla, fill out the exact settings you used in VS2012 and check if that works. If it does its a VS2012 issue, if it doesn't then you have other problems.

    Maybe visual studio cannot solve mydomain.com

    yes it does.. It was working before I made the new OS installation.
