Relocation and Failed Reconnection (2 posts)

    Recently I moved from one office to another.
    After reconnecting my machines and logging into the new system I discovered that I was unable to reconnect to my web host server. Please consider the following:

    1) I made no change in my FTP settings.
    2) Neither did I reconfigure any of my devices. I simply reconnected them physically.
    3) Although I have full access to the internet including email, I am unable to reconnect with my web host FTP server.
    4) I am able to connect to the FETCH FTP server using the FETCH short-cut.

    This is a copy of my most recent FETCH transcript when trying to connect to my web host FTP server:

    Connecting to port 21 (Mac OS X firewall is limiting connections to specific applications) (17/07/25, 8:53 AM)
    Connected to port 21 (17/07/25, 8:53 AM)

    220-You are user number 1 of 50 allowed.
    220-Local time is now 08:53. Server port: 21.

    220 You will be disconnected after 15 minutes of inactivity.

    My best guess is that your new Internet connection has a firewall that blocks your connection. I am able to connect to that address from my location, so the server is working, and Fetch does not have trouble talking to it (as you saw in your previous location). That leads me to think that it's an issue with your new Internet setup. I would speak to whoever manages the office network.
