OK, just a bit more infomation - I think it could be working it just times out. I can't understand why it would be that slow - even on my local network - so its not a bandwidth problem. I've tried with both the IP address and the host for one of the sites and nothing.
I'm using CuteFTP pro as my client and it times out after its default time which is completely unacceptable - even if I could get it to extend.
I've not yet managed to FTP into this machine since [email protected] had it - I'm getting really desparate now. Has anyone got any ideas??

That works fine with small pkg's but might result in a timeout with one of the big ones.
It's a lot safer to ftp them into the box and then load them via the control panel
Well, I did not know that. So far all the patches which I installed using this method works without a glitch. I guess I am just lucky or that they are still not 'big' enough.
