    I am using iWeb to try to publish my podcast and it says i have to use a FTP to put it on my website so i used fetch, what do i have to put for the Hostname when starting it, or making a new connection?

    Hi,

    Where is your website located? Is it on .Mac, or some other server?

    Did you create your website with iWeb, or something else?

    If it is on .Mac, you cannot FTP to .Mac; I would think that iWeb could upload the podcast the same way it uploads webpages to .Mac.

    If your website is on some other server, then you should contact the folks who run the server (your hosting provider) and they can tell you what hostname, username, and password to use.

    Thanks,

    No, its not on .Mac. The FTP server im using is rumpus which is fine and works with fetch, iWeb creates an rss file for my podcast but from fetch i need to no how to upload it onto my blog, which isn't proving succesful. I don't have a website as such, its just a blog.

    Hi,

    Sorry, I'm still a little unclear on your setup. Is the blog hosted on a Mac running Rumpus? If not, where is the blog hosted?

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    So the blog is on blogger.com, not on your Macintosh, I believe.

    But what you are trying to do is host the podcast on your Macintosh?

    Is the goal to have a link to the podcast inside your regular blog?

    Thanks,
