WD FTP login error......
« on: March 14, 2008, 09:57:46 PM »
i had to reformat my hard drive and install WD again. My data is being sent to weatherforyou and Wunderground with no probs. The prob is, i cant connect to the FTP in WD to get the data sent to my site for WDL. The error i keep getting in WD is "Remotehost name is invalid" Everything is correct, i just called my Server and they verified that everything i have typed in is correct. Everything was working fine till i reformated my hard drive. I know i missing somthing probably really easy, but i cant find it...Any help would be great...ty

Do you have "passive mode" ticked under control panel>ftp connections>connections. Also be sure permanant connection is ticked.
