  • Publisher 2003 FTP issue

    I was called out to a client site for assistance in making connection via FTP from Publsher 2003 to their Hosting Service.

    I followed the proper instructions

    File> Publish to the Web>
    Look In> Network Places> FTP Locations> Add or Modify site>

    Created the site using the hosting credentials and instructions.

    It creates the site in the FTP drop down list, but will not connect.

    It tells me the information for the host is not correct, but I have used the same format mysiteontheweb.com as the "Name of FTP site" then select user, provide user credentials and password in MS FrontPage, DreamWeaver MX, Publisher 2002, and WS-FTP and they all will connect.

    So what issues with Publisher 2003 would cause it not to make connection?

    Any suggestions or assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    I just had a thought....

    I didn't check for IIS on the machine that Publisher 2003 was installed.

    I think that might be the missing link... maybe.....

    BUT...

    I am still open to other suggestions or ideas.

      IIS is nothing to do with it
      Try a different FTP client and check you can upload/download files with that (rule out site issues)

        Tried this suggestion...."Try a different FTP client and check you can upload/download files with that (rule out site issues)" There were no site issues.


        adding the IIS component instantly corrected the problem.
