FTP problem
« on: July 07, 2017, 11:33:04 AM »
I have a subdomain that I update with a FTP program set up many years ago. computer is old, going to new one. using same ftp program, same server inf/username / password on the new computer I get: Your username and/or password is not correct, or attempting more concurrent connections than the server allows. [67] Additional information: Access denied: 530.
Old computer can still can log onto the subdomain with these settings.
the username is in the formant: subdomain@maindomain.com  does anyone know if this has been changed? http://www.lunarforums.com/Smileys/default/dunno.gif

I don't think the format or settings have changed; otherwise you wouldn't be able to log in with your old computer. It sounds more likely that you are failing to properly log off from an FTP session, and have some number of open sessions at your IP address -- don't just close the client, but make sure you do a "logoff" or "exit" from the menu. See if that helps. You may have to do this several times before the extra sessions are closed.

If you've been using the old computer for a long time, and letting it log in for you with stored ID and password, it's possible that you've misremembered the ID or password (if they don't show up in clear text). See if you can get the FTP client to show you everything (including passwords) in plain (visible) text.

Thanks for the info. I use coffee cup FTP and there's no log off, just disconnect. so i'm stuck there. entered the log in information dozens of times, really checking it etc. No joy.  anyway, can still get to the domain through my main site log on. Just not as convenient in my situation.  Thanks, john
