Error When Incorporating FTP Server On Dreamweaver MX 2004

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I have incorporated the FTP server on Dreamweaver MX 2004.

However, every time I connect to the server, I get an error "An ftp error occurred – cannot make connection to the host.

The remote host cannot be found".

I would like to know why this always happens and I would also like to know if this problem will ever be fixed and work again.


An FTP error occurred – cannot make connection to host. No response from the server. This may be due to one or more of the

following reasons:

Accessing the server requires firewall settings that aren’t properly set. Please verify that the firewall settings in the Site category of the Preferences dialog box are properly set and that the Use Firewall option in the Site definition dialog box is selected.

– The server may be accepting only passive mode or only active mode. Toggling the ‘Use Passive FTP’ checkbox may help you establish a connection.

– If you are connecting to an IP6 enabled server please select “Use IP transfer modes checkbox in the Advanced site definition dialog.

• Your local firewall may be blocking the incoming FTP data. Please disable it to see if it makes a difference.

– It is possible your FTP may be using a non-standard FTP port (21). If you need to specify a non-standard port, enter the port number after the host name separated by a colon’:

Good day Deloresigott,

OK, you are a bit confused. It does not even need an Internet connection to edit files. Adobe Dreamweaver only change files locally on your computer.

If you are trying to access to your website with DW and you get an error that says “your login info is incorrect” then the chances are devastating that “YOUR LOGIN INFO IS INCORRECT.”

However, if things still did not work, try to check the passive FTP. Make sure you set up the connection to your remote site correctly.

If these issues persist, try another FTP program and see if that works. If it does not then the problem is not Dreamweaver.

I hope this information helps,

Mark Amna.
