    FTP Error

    Hi I'm getting this error (WS_FTP Log info) when I try to connect to my server via FTP (ssh and http work fine):

    Finding Host ftp.dohgames.com ...
    Connecting to ************:21
    Connected to ************:21 in 0.000000 seconds, Waiting for Server Response
    Error reading response from server.
    Connection closed by remote host.
    Host type (1): Automatic Detect

    Any ideas how to fix this? I can keep on using sftp which is fine but I'd like to use ftp.

    Thanks.

    Need more information like what ftp server you are running. If you are running cpanel try to switch to proftpd and see if it fixes it.

    you might want to try setting ws_ftp to use passive ftp (PASV) - active ftp might be being blocked (by your firewall most likely)
