i’ve searched all over for an answer to this question, to no avail. this means one of two things: I have a unique problem, or i’m uniquely an idiot when it comes to FTP. please read on…
So I’m on my Mac, running OSX, and i have d/l’ed the ftp client known as Fugu (as recommended by another mac user in a previous post within the dreamhost forums). Now, whenever i connect using just a browser, i get the same problem all mac OSX users get, where its read only and not write.
Hence the need for an FTP client.
But whenever I try to use my FTP client built into OSX or Fugu, i always come across errors.
In OSX connecting, it mounts the server on my desktop, but nothing ever shows up…
the interface looks like this
and then, it gives me this error message when i try to connect
am i typing in the wrong address? should i place something in the “port” field when i try to connect? or directory? what am i doing wrong?
i feel like this is probably a really simple problem with a really simple solution, but i’m going bonkers trying to figure this out. it can’t be this difficult to use FTP on a mac? GRRRRRR!!!
thanks for any help guys!
