FTP EW4 Problem of connection with remote server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, with my EW4 I have this problem:

    "Can't connect to '' on port 21. Check the server name and proxy settings. If the settings are correct, the server may be temporarily unavailable."

    All settings are ok, but always I have this problem when I want upload my website on the remote server.

    Can you help me?
    Thank a lot!

  • Are the settings really correct?    You need the correct ftp://  address ("Location"), the correct ftp "User name", the correct ftp "Password", and the correct folder name ("Directory"), if any, and "Use Passive FTP" checked (almost certainly).

    Without telling us the actual password (use ***** instead) tell us what you have in each of those entries in your publishing settings.

    As an example (using a fake site address, username and password), here is a typical set of entries for an FTP publishing setting:

    Name: "Any name you want - this is just for listing the connection"

    Connection Type: FTP

    Location: ""

    Directory: "wwwroot"

    User name: "user123"

    Password: "password123"

    Maximum simultaneous connections: 4

    Use passive FTP: checked
