I'm using Dreamweaver 21.2 and am unable to connect to my hosting server (A2 hosting).  I can connect using third-party software (CoreFTP and Filezilla).  In Dreamwaever, I have tried checking and unchecking options in the advanced menu to no avail.  I have had no problems with older versions of Dreamwaver.  I have checked my firewall and  Dreamweaver is authorized. I have bypassed my routher and tired a direct connection to my modem.  No luck.  I have two domains and tried the FTP setting for both with no luck.  The FTP log is not recording so it is no help.

 

I'm gettang an error that says my limit has been reached due to firewall blocking , blah blah blah.

 

I have used Dreamwaver for years and am comfortable with it and I don't want to change.  Can anyone help?

I've never used the ftp option within Dreamweaver but at one time it did have a 'passive ftp' option. If it's still an option try checking that box and see what happens.

Settings vary widely by hosting plan.  The most common used connection method is FTP. However, you can also use more secure connection methods such as Secure FTP (SFTP) or FTP over SSL (FTPS).  Consult with your hosting provider to find out which S/FTP or FTPS settings they require.  See the help article below for more details.

Also Dreamweaver supports only OpenSSH identity key files.

I guess the OP knows what settings to use as they can connect with third party software, presumably they are using those same settings within Dreamweavers FTP option.

Maybe not.  Assuming the OP is using identity key files, Dreamweaver only supports OpenSSH key files.  Filezilla is not quite so picky.   

 

In any case, this is all guesswork.  We don't know which connection method the hosting plan requires.  Saying "it doesn't work" gives us nothing to go on.

OP is using FTP, not any of the other newer stuff. As far as I know Deamweavers file upload is/was always prone to issues - that's why I preferred to use a dedicated FTP option.

Dreamweaver works fine for me on various servers over FTP and sFTP connections.  But I also use FileZilla because it's a dedicated FTP client and does many things better.

 

My guess is that Dreamweaver is being blocked by local Firewall or Anti-virus security settings.  Whitelisting Dreamweaver might help.  Or it could be a conflict from a 3rd party app like Skype that's using the same port.

Well I say that because we used to get a lot of posters in the forum seemingly having some kind of difficulty uploading files from within DW. The usual answer, which solved many of the problems, was to check the passive ftp box. I dont know myself what the passive ftp box was as I've never seen anything related in a dedicated ftp program, they seem to just work. 

 

Personally I've never used any of the inbuilt options which many of the editors offer, some might be adequate.
