logo Error: failed to connect

Return to Introduction  Previous page  Next page 

This error is caused by one of the following:


1.You are attempting to connect to an Internet host address and your computer is not connected to the Internet.


2.You have the incorrect IP address or domain name specified in Host Name edit box in the Connect to Host dialog box.


3.You have the incorrect port number specified in the Connect to Host dialog box.


4.The FTP server at the host site is down.        


Try pinging the host computer to see if it is responding. You can do this from the MS-DOS command prompt by entering "ping hostname" or "ping IP address" on the command line. If Ping times out, there is a problem at the host. Talk to a network administrator at the host site and see if they can help you.
