That isn't fiezilla's fault.

You can also use SFTP as in secure FTP if the siet you connect to allows / uses it. I'm not sure tiscali does. FTP traffic is "open" to anyone who cares to sniff it.

The background advice to this is ....

1. Don't use easy to guess passwords
2. Don't use the same password on every site / ftp
3. Change all non-secure passwords regular
4. Only use a host that supports sftp (like https)

HTH?

Got it, one has to include ftp before the myweb.tiscali.co.uk.

Hi Daz, I've tried Leechftp, similar problems with T but the error message is different:
Quote:
! Socket Error: no connection
Could not login to myweb.tiscali.co.uk


But I can login to my other, non T, sites.

T is still available through HTML-Kit and the dos prompt.

Thanks, I'll give it a try.

I use T as my ISP so get the additional benefits (?) of an amount od webspace. I can log on to it by using a password, I don't need to be signed in to T to access it.

Google Leech FTP, much better.

I'm assuming Tiscali still require you access their sites while using their A/C...?

I downloaded FileZilla for a trial as I'm looking for a free ftp app for MrsSRD to use to upload some photos to her Tiscali myweb site.

It keeps timing out when I try to access my myweb.tiscali.co.uk website. I can readily access the site using the ftp app in HTML-Kit and using ftp from the dos prompt. Also FileZilla will readily access my other, non Tiscali, websites.

Any ideas anyone?
