The same thing is happening to me. What did you find out?
I'm also having a similar problem. We are running Macromedia Contribute 3. It has worked fine for years but a few weeks ago started playing up. I can access the website using my Contribute connection but cannot set up new connections on different PCs or for different users. I can ftp the site from all computers and under all user logins but Contribute gets as far as accepting the FTP details, but when I browse to where the site is located on the server I get the message "Contribute cannot verify your connection details".
Any ideas? I think it must be conflicting with security settings somewhere,
I am running Contribute CS3, and getting a slightly different error message (Contribute could not connect because the server is down or not accepting connections), but with the same result. The server is not down and I an FTP conventionally.
I was also having problems connecting to Contribute (after having no problems since I got the new Mac in February) and this is what I did and it started to work.
When it asked for my web connection info (ftp, sftp, local/network, webDAV) I picked ftp and clicked the Advanced button. On the new screen I checked "Choose FTP server settings manually: and unchecked everything. Then I checked "Let Contribute automatically detect FTP server settings." And it finally worked.
I hope this works for you.
