    Error Publishing, Very very frustrated.

    latro_
      Hi there

      This is my last port of call as I cannot figure this one out, I have spent hours trying to no positive result.
      I have used Contribute on other servers fine, however a client is using one out side of our network and I am having issues with publishing drafts.

      I have tried:
      alt publish method, passive ftp, non passive ftp, optimized on, optimized off and all combinations thereof.
      However everytime I click 'publish' contribute says 'waiting for server' and after 30 seconds or so the following error message pops up:

      'Contribute could not connect because the server is down or not accepting connections. Please contact your administrator.'

      I have checked the server and a .LCK file is created and also there is an _mm directory.

      I have had zero problems using both dreamweaver and filezilla to FTP into this server and add/mod/delete both directories and files so i cannot see it being a permissions issue.

      I have also tested using the Adober Server checker tool which resulted in the log attached at the end of this message (login details taken of course).

      I really am lost for any ideas or anything else to try. This could spell the end of our company using contribute as a content management tool if not upto the job :(

      any help apreciated,,, alot!
