    DW will not log in to ftp site

    4444Steve
      I am trying to down load my site but I cannot get DW to connect to the site. The message says cannot connect to host and host cannot be found. The host log in and password are correct. I tried unchecking ftp performance optimization. I can log on to the site with Safari just fine. I have tried ftp.xxx and ftp:// just to be sure to no avail.
      Any suggestions? I an using a Mac.

          host can not be found means the Address is wrong.

          do not type the ftp:// protocol, it's added automatically.

          try these variations of your domain name:

          example.com
          ftp.example.com
          www.example.com
