    I'm trying to access some Dreamweaver files on a server that requires I enter a specific port number. (Because I'm on a Mac and the file names start with ~, the built-in Dreamweaver Fetch protocol isn't working). The FAQ here said to open the triangle on the new connections line and set the port, but my version 3.0.3 does not have any triangle on the new connections. And when I try to change the port in the firewall preferences, that only seems to change the port I'm sending out of, not the control port that I need to connect with on the other server.

    You can put the port number after the hostname, e.g. "ftp.acme.com 9999" to connect to port 9999.

    Or you can upgrade to 4.0 :).
