In Contribute 3, I have created 50 website connections. These
connections utilize FTP for connection. I logged out for the
evening, came back the next day, opened Contribute, and upon
attempting to establish one site connection, I was prompted for FTP
username and password over 50 times.
I attempted to click the "save password" button while
reconnecting to each site, but upon leaving the software and coming
back, I got prompted 50 times again for FTP username and password.
My contribute user name is different from my ftp user name.
If I understand your question correctly, I think you need to
go into your site administration and go to the Publishing Server
> Edit Connection dialog. There, where it asks for your FTP user
name and password, be sure to uncheck the "Users must enter their
own user name and password" checkbox so Contribute uses that FTP
user name every time it xfers files.
