The last time I had this, my webhost had blocked me because of multiple ftp errors. Rebooting the weather pc had corrected the local problem but I had to contact my webhost to remove the block.

maybe your web host has changed to using secure FTP

I currently don't use VWS to ftp any data - BUT - when I did I had this similar problem and it was as Garth stated, my webhost had blocked my IP because of to many attempts.  I did have to contact them (webhost) for resolution.

Get Fling and let it do the work. VWS generates files, kill the VWS Ftp uploads, set fling to monitor and upload on change.

Agree with Cutty, I switched to Fling a while back and it is great, very stable and easy to use/setup.
