FTP Problems

No luck getting into FTP.  This is what I'm getting:

That's odd as I've tried several different settings on on the latest Filezilla and i can't get it to fail. Something to try. Under "Edit"->"Settings" go to FTP and chose Transfer Mode "Active". Next click on "Active Mode" and chose "Ask your operating system for external IP address." Click on "Passive Mode" and chose Fall back to active mode. Click "Ok" and try that. If that doesn't work we can look into this further. I can call you to offer some Tech support if you wish?

That is REALLY strange. PORT 192,168,100,101,198,13 is an internal NAT address that we don't even have or use! Is your NAT using that address range? If so your router may be miscommunicating your IP to the FTP client?

I'm getting a different set of error messages now:

Interestingly, I can link to ftp://ftp.furtopia.org through both my browser and Windows Explorer.  (is the TMP folder the one I'm supposed to use?)

No you upload your files to the root of your FTP. PHP requires a tmp folder for it's temporary files. So that folder is there for php to use. You can ignore it. Just don't delete it. ;)  So did you get Filezilla working?

Nope.  See above.  FileZilla is still refusing my connection.

Are you ok with a support call to work on resolving this issue?

We'd have to schedule a weekend, since I work in the afternoons.  This Saturday is not good, as I have an appointment at a tyre shop.


That being said, I was able to upload something through using FTP with Windows Explorer, so I can content myself with that if need be.

Ok lets try Sunday at 6PM if that's good with you and get that working for you? I'd also like to find out the cause of this problem if it is's unique to just you or something we need to look deeper into here.
