Do you think it might just block opensource FTP programs? It's weird other still work?

BTW I had done that recently - I have spent far too much time on this.

Have you tried to connect to another server via FTP using FileZilla?

 

 

e.g. ftp://releases.ubuntu.com

Why not to use build-in Windows 10 File Explorer FTP functionality? no need any 3-rd party software.

Hadn't thought of another site - so the program does work (confirmed on another site) - just something to do with reading my sites. Thank you so much for that. The built-in FTP is command-line isn't it? I explained I'm operating at reduced levels since a stroke so That I need something that won't frustrate me with spelling mistakes, etc.

PhilANZ: The built-in FTP is command-line isn't it?

 

No, its has File Explorer user interface. Open your File Explorer, on LH select "This PC", on top menu click "Computer" and "Add a network location" and then follow the instructions. When you finished, all your new locations will be under "This PC" > "Network locations" area.

Thanks - didn't work instantly but will try with a site withouit passwords toorrow and go from there (FTP used to be so simple). Now a more "fun" task - a client changing from Xero to a desktop system - my first ever (although another is moving from MYOB in the cloud but he's not using a Kiwi package - even more fun). Cloud systems are proving too expensive for some.

Seems it's too much trouble - even the Windows function works with open sites - but as soon as I try username and password it's just like the open source FTP programs. Yet the proprietary ones work. My wife has got the same results - always good to know since I do get things wrong at times. Anyway thanks for all the thoughts - the answer's there somewhere but the IT guy couldn't sort it - so I'll just accept it and move on.

I have no customers using FTP nowadays - it's insecure.

I think FTPS is generally discouraged these days, with SFTP being the recommended option (as it operates over the modern and secure OpenSSH protocol).
