can't connect to ATT personal pages server (3 posts)

    While on dialup I used ATT worldnet personal pages on their server. I've since gone to cable but kept a basic account with ATT. I can access the ATT server OK via dialup but can't via FTP cable despite following all their instructions to do so.

    Using passive FTP gets me a message that I need to use a secure method. But when I choose SFTP after a minute of trying I get Fetch's message "could not be opened because the connection to the SFTP server could not be establishe or was lost." Additonally it advises that I should verify that I have the correct hostname, etc.
    I do.

    I've tried unchecking the send ADAT and MACB commands and tried MD5 but none of those made any diffence. I also tried port 21 but no luck there either.

    I can use Fetch (5.05) to access other servers in other places without difficulty.

    Here's the kicker, I downloaded Interarchy and it connected immediately without my even specifying it use SFTP. It apparently does so when available using SSL(AUTH TLS).

    Here is the transcript from the failed connection with Fetch:

    Hi,

    We're sorry, but Fetch does not support FTP with SSL at this time, and AT&T's servers do not accept anything but FTP with SSL when you're not connecting from their network, so you will not be able to connect to AT&T's servers with Fetch.

    You wouldn't have run into this problem on dialup because you were connecting pretty much directly to AT&T's servers; but when you're coming in from another Internet provider, they require FTP with SSL.

    Adding support for FTP with SSL is on our to-do list for the future.

    The only workaround is to connect to AT&T using dialup, or to use a different FTP client, like Interarchy.

    You should be able to connect to most other servers without a problem - very few require FTP with SSL to the exclusion of anything else.

    Sorry not to have a better answer for you,

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    At least I know it's not something I'm doing wrong. I've used Fetch happily for many, many years and feel kind of like a traitor using another application but I guess I don't have a choice in this case.

    Am looking forward to Fetch's having this ability in the future.

    Thanks again. :)
