    Having Trouble With FTP

    I have just downloaded RJText Ed and I'm trying to set up the FTP side of it. I don't know how to do this. I can't quite decide how my server's FTP address should be expressed in the server field. Previously, I used Filezilla, which uses <username>.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk but RJText Ed makes it come up as <username>@pwp.blueyonder.co.uk. I can't get it to connect and I don't know what I'm doing. Can anyone please help me?

    I've never used this myself either, nor filezilla.
    Is it that you cannot actually connect, or is it that you cannot authenticate? If you cannot connect, that would indicate that you don't have anything listening on 21, so the service itself is not running or a firewall rule is blocking it. If you cannot authenticate, that would simply be a config issue (I've watched one of the guys at work using the filezilla, and he always had problems getting it to work properly with other equipment).

    Have you tried entering your server name as "www.mysite.com"? Many times the same host that's serving up your web site is also listening for ftp connections.

    Thanks for the replies. I have it set up correctly now. I'm not sure what I did, but the @ symbol has now gone and the dots are in the right places. Working lovely now.

    BTW, I discovered RJ Text Ed only yesterday. I would highly recommend it. A very luxurious text editor/ code pad, which has it's own built in FTP which appears to work amazingly fast, compared with others I have tried. Freeware.
