Exclamation FTP access with Dreamweaver / FTPclient

First of all, this was an awesome article and the best How-To I've done yet. Got my webserver up and running and hosting my first site. The web-ftp function works great but I would like to connect to my site directly with dreamweaver or another ftp client but my ftp username/password are not working. I am using the user account that I created as Admin.

Any suggestions would be great as I have reached a bump in the road. I read another thread here that was similar, and the guy said he logged into his admin account, and removed ftp access, saved, and then rechecked ftp access, and resaved, and it worked for him. I tried that but when i uncheck ftp access and save......I go back to it, and it is still checked, it's like it won't let me uncheck ftp access.

Please help...lol

First make sure your firewall doesn't block port 21 (FTP) on your ISPConfig box.

Also, have you tried "Passive Mode" in Dreamweaver's ftp settings?

Question Dreamweaver

I use Dreamweaver to connect to my server also, and I haven't had any problems at all. The only thing I set was the domain name, my user name, and the password. I'm not using passive, I'm not using SecureFTP, or anything else, and it works great.

Is your server behind a router? Is port 21 forwarded to the server on the router? Are you using the right username for the site?

Default FTP Problems ... here too

Hi,

some of my customers have FTP problems. Untill now it looks strange - the can't connect to the server - I can. They can connect to other servers, so no FW problem. Besides they can login (I see in the log) but then they get a timeout, which sounds like act/pass problem too me. I had to switch to active mode, before this never worked. I am just trying to figure out. Here my proFTP conf (deleted all commented lines):

Code:
ServerName			"Debian"
ServerType			standalone
DeferWelcome			off
MultilineRFC2228		on
DefaultServer			on
ShowSymlinks			on
TimeoutNoTransfer		600
TimeoutStalled			600
TimeoutIdle			1200
DisplayLogin                    welcome.msg
DisplayFirstChdir               .message
ListOptions                	"-l"
DenyFilter			\*.*/
DefaultRoot 			~
IdentLookups 			off
ServerIdent on "FTP Server ready."
Port				21
MaxInstances			30
User				nobody
Group				nogroup
Umask				022  022
AllowOverwrite			on
DefaultRoot ~
Include /etc/proftpd_ispconfig.conf
and here the ispconf-part:
Code:
<VirtualHost xx.xx.xx.xx>
        DefaultRoot             ~
        AllowOverwrite          on
        Umask                   002
</VirtualHost>
Any help welcome - I'll check on the proftp site now,

regards maik

Default shell access?

I don't know, but may the ftp-user must have shell access. As I just read on the proftpd site, the option

Code:
DefaultRoot ~
will make a chroot as soon, as the user logs in, so the ftp-session can run in a kind of sandbox. If the user hasn't got shell access, this might end up in

Code:
$> chroot /dev/null
-> timeout! . So try it and give the ftp user shell access...then retry. If possible you can check the

Code:
/var/log/auth.log
regards maik

Please post the output of
Code:
netstat -tap
I'd like to see if your FTP server is listening only on certain IP addresses such as 127.0.0.1 (localhost).

When you tried to connect with Dreamweaver, did you use your server's IP address or a hostname? If you used a hostname, can you try again with the IP address?
