FTP Query

#1

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone here could tell me whether or not DreamHost allows for the ability to send and receive requests on port 21. I require this feature as I plan to use a PHP script that will connect and read/write from an external server and to do this, we need to be able to send requests on said port.

I appreciate any help you’re able to give,
Matt C

I emailed support after several hours and got a response from them, so I thought I’d post it here just in case anyone else has this issue:

"We close no ports, so you are welcome to request this via a script if you
like. Active listening on any ports are not able to run on our shared
servers though, if this helps a bit. Feel free to let us know if you have
any other questions though, and we will reply as soon as possible!

Thanks,
