FTP Upload via BT Home Hub 3

Hi. has anyone ever successfully managed to do an ftp upoad via a BT Home Hub? I cannot get it to work on my HomeHub3.

I've tried selecting ftp for the machine I'm using in the port forwarding configuration, allowed all traffic in both directions through the router firewall and switched off windows firewall - and stil no success.

I'm using Filezilla. I can connect and logon to the ftp server, but can't get a proper data connection - so directory listing fails and I can't initiate a file upload.

Very frustrating.....Smiley Frustrated

Re: FTP Upload via BT Home Hub 3

You should be able to connect to ftp servers and download and upload content, without any port forwarding.

 

If you are trying to ftp into your PC from outside your network, then its more involved.

Re: FTP Upload via BT Home Hub 3

Have you tried FireFtp, which is an addon for Firefox?

 

I have a HH1 here, and it works fine, but I think that some ftp programs open too many threads at once, which overloads the home hub 3, especially if you are using wireless to connect.

Re: FTP Upload via BT Home Hub 3

Hello,

 

I use Filllzilla and it works OK with both my local ( 192.168.x.x ) ftp connections and external connections.

 

It may be that you are "not authorised" to use ftp on the external server, hence no listings or perhaps the external server uses a different port from the usual: A lot of webhosting services work this way.

 

If so you need something like [ftp://fred@111.111.111.1:111] in your quickconnect in Filezilla.

 

I'm assuming that you can connect via ftp locally.

 

Cheers..   Smiley Happy

This may be a long shot but have you got Web Address Help set to "enable"? See http://preferences.webaddresshelp.bt.com/selfcare/preferences.cgi  If so, try "disable".

Re: FTP Upload via BT Home Hub 3

This worked a treat. I've been without FTP for several months and having to go to other places to use FTP. Setting the help pages to disabled is the answer.

 

Many thanks
