          What kind of error are you getting?

           

          If you are not sure about the ftp host, the best thing to do is to call your hosting company to make sure you have the correct ftp address. If you do, you might try checking the Use Passive FTP check box.

              It sounds like your ftp login is correct. I have trouble with the DW ftp also. Sometimes it hangs trying to connect with the server. I use Filezilla a lot, but Dreamweaver is more convenient.

               

              Did you try passive ftp?

               

              Click on the Site menu and then Manage Sites. In the Manage Sites dialog box, make sure you site is highlighted if you have more than one site. Click the Edit button. On the Advanced tab, click the Test button. If it's not connecting, check the Use Passive FTP checkbox and click the Test button again. If it still isn't connecting, check the Use IPv6 transfer mode checkbox.

               

              If you are still not getting a connection, you might also try disabling your Firewall. Also try disabling your Anti-virus software to see if there might be a conflict. In fact, whenever I install new software, I disable my security software first.

                If your website is http://www.mysite.com

                 

                Then your FTP host (in DW) is simply: mysite.com

                 

                EDIT 1: The reason being is that while your ftp address is likely ftp://www.mysite.com. DW only needs to know the mysite.com part... give that a shot.

                    If your website is http://www.mysite.com

                     

                    Then your FTP host (in DW) is simply: mysite.com

                     

                    Not necessarily.  Hosting log-ins can vary quite a bit.

                    Some servers use numeric addresses: 123.456.789.101

                    While others may have named servers on the hosting company's domain: omega.webhost-company.com

                     

                    Always check with the web host.
