FTP to FTP


#1

Hi,

I am trying to transfer my files from my server to my dreamhost ftp server and it won’t work. It all appears to be transferring then after so long it brings up transfer failed. It creates the file name on the server yet it is 0 size.

I am using FlashFxp

Any help would be great :slight_smile:

Regards,
Paul.

try using “mc” from a DH ssh shell to access your FTP/SFTP server.

I’m sorry.
If your are on window$ use putty (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html) to access your account.
Then a console will appear.
After you are inside your dreamhost server console just type:
mc
and press enter.
mc (midnight commander) will open.
select one of the sides on the menu (either “left” or “right”) and choose ftp, or sftp (via ssh) to connect to your home server.

Good luck.
If you have any more troule let me/us know.
