ftp connection can't be opened - was opened as usual with no trouble earlier today (4 posts)

    I FTPed some files earlier today from my iMac running OS X 10.6.8 - worked fine.
    Now it gives me this message "An FTP connection to "hollinfarms.com" could not be opened because the FTP server dropped the connection."
    I restarted my computer and called my Internet server who was able to connect fine on their end. I then loaded some minor corrections to the page using net2ftp.com.

    I get the same message on my laptop running OS X 10.9.4.

    Here is the Fetch Transcript from quitting Fetch, starting it again and printing out the "Fetch Transcript" for the desktop machine which is where I use Fetch because Maverick doesn't support GoLive.

    I'm able to connect to hollinfarms.com as well. Given that, and the fact that net2ftp.com can connect, it sounds like an issue between your Internet Service Provider and the hollinfarms.com server. You could try restarting your cable modem (or whatever device you use to connect to the Internet), but if that does not work I would contact your ISP.

    Thanks,

    Whatever was wrong corrected itself by the next day. Everything works again.
