    Selecting a specific Port when connecting through FTP in Dreamweaver.

    jesusjj
      Hi,
      I was wondering if anyone knew if it was possible to select a specific to port when connecting to a website via ftp when using dreamweaver. Other ftp programs like Fetch for Macs have an extra field where you can select a specific port to connect to. I am trying to connect to a new Website through Dreamweaver by selecting a particular port, but I don't see that option anywhere. I have Dreamweaver CS3 for Macs. Thanks.

          I use the PC version, but yes, you can specify a port. No, there is no
          specific field for it, just add a color and the port number after the
          IP/domain name... like 172.16.1.1:2121
