Dreamweaver FTP Error

I have been using Macromedia Dreamweaver MX 2004 for years now to do FTP activity then yesterday, I can't connect to my server. I get these messages:

"The connection to the remote host has been lost. Click Refresh to reconnect."

"An FTP error occurred-cannot get remote folder information. Dreamweaver could not connect to the server. Please check your network connection and try again."

I've checked my website, it's up and running. I checked my network connection on the control panel and the exception for Dreamweaver is still there. My exception for Dreamweaver on my firewall is still there. Any ideas?

    I installed FileZilla, which I use on my laptop, and tested my connection. It works as normal.

    Yep, Same problem. Used DW for years on several different site with no problem. One day I'm getting the same error message..."The connection to the remote host has been lost. Click Refresh to reconnect."

    Sites are connecting fine through Fire FTP

    Any idea what the problem could be???

    A few things to check:

    1) Have you recently installed any new antivirus or internet security software?
    2) Have you modified your FTP settings? Maybe changed the connection port?
    3) Has your host changed the connection settings.

    I'd suggest deleting the "Site" from Dreamweaver, and re-adding it again. That usually does the trick.

    Have you tried connecting from an FTP client to make sure you can connect through FTP at all?

    Also, have you made sure that the FTP settings haven't changed on the server, especially if it is being hosted?

I would suggest that your server ip address has possibly changed. I would contact the people who support your server and ask them if anything has changed.

the fact that your website is up and running does not mean that the FTP should work. Very often your FTP server is physically separate to your web server

please rate this answer if it has been useful

thanks

Hyperlink


Do you mean "How do I connect to a server and upload files to it?" If so, then the answer is by going to site, and then manage sites.
Edit the site in question with the edit button.
Make sure the advanced tab is selected.
Category selection is Remote Info.
Fill in your ftp server information e.g. ftp.microsoft.com
Fill in your username and password.
Use the test button to see if it has connected properly.


You publish files and folders by right clicking on them and selecting PUT.

Dreamweaver MX 2004 does not launch


Navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\USER\Application Data\Macromedia\dreamweaver mx 2004

Rename the Configuration Folder to “Configuration old”.


Note: "USER" is your Windows username. If you are unable to see the “Local Settings” folder, it may be possible that you don’t have explorer set to view hidden files and folders. In explorer, click on Organize > Folder and Search Options, click on the View tab and enable “Show Hidden Files and Folders”. Click ok.
