Hello Walt, and thank you for your response.

I checked my settings against the page per your instructions, and everything is exactly as it should be, but I get the exact same error message.

What now?

Do you see DelphiPlus links on the left side of your My Forums page?

Hello Walt.

Yes I did check the links on the left side of my forum's page, but none of them were helpful.

The problem is now moot, however, because I discovered what the problem was quite by accident. As it turned out, for some reason my password wasn't being accepted, so I got a new one from Delphi, and things worked out okay.

I also used Paul McBride's links to the web based FTP software, which is more user friendly than WS-FTP, and along with his excellent instructions, made the whole thing a lot less painful to use.

Not that it's your responsibility, but I am wondering why it is that the documentation on how to use DelphiPlus so poor? The FAQ section is of very limited use, especially to people who are new to computing like MISSDIXIE who may not even know that they need to install a separate FTP program. I went to the DephiPlus Members' Forum and a several people have complained about their inability to get their web pages up and running after paying their $$. The best help comes from people other than Delphi employees who have been spending a lot of their own uncompensated time helping people trouble shoot. It's unfortunate that there are no CLEAR instructions on what to do next after signing up. Web savvy techies might think that the links on the forum page provide all the info people need, but that is far from the reality for most people.

Please pass these concerns along to management if you are able.

Once again, thanks for your responses.

Since you found Paul's page helpful, have you visited his hangout? Users helping users.

Yes I found it. Thanks a lot.

Walt since you posted this that document has been lost, will soon be getting ws_ftp the current version and setting that up.
This document is no longer available and may hold the answer to my question.

The message you were replying to was dated 2001. There have been many changes since then. 

I am trying to run WS_FTP is that no longer possible I last ran it on 05/16/2008?

We haven't had FTP access to our file space for many years. I'm sorry, but it's no longer available. 

You can still upload images and webpages, but they have to be done one at a time using the mechanism on My Forums. 

Go to Files:

Then Choose a File and Upload.

To download files, you would have to open each file individually and save to your computer.
