    Is it possible for me to use Cyberduck to connect to my artsite, now dead in the Verizon-Web-Waters due to them dropping ftp, and my using Adobe Golive as my web site builder.

    Here is my artsite address: http://mysite.verizon.net/moonstoneartstudio/.

    I just cannot seem to get Cyberduck to link to it and at least get a directory listing of the files.

    Any suggestions? or clarifying comments welcomed ... like Verizon needs to allow _______, before you can use Cyberduck ...

    sftp? https? WebDAV? ... what should I be trying to use?

    If I recall correctly, GoLive doesn't do SFTP. CyberDuck and Fugu are the options that are free that we use, I prefer Transmit. You might want to give them a ring anyway. Some sites no only let you use a browser to upload, like 50sweb and the like.

    My version of Golive allows "file, ftp, and http" as Protocols. I am wondering how to connect using Cyberduck (or Transmit), to my Verizon site, separate from Golive:

    (http://mysite.verizon.net/moonstoneartstudio/)

    Does Verizon need to give some kind of permission first?

    One piece to the puzzle: since Golive uses ISO 8859-1 Translation, I should set this in Cyberduck?

    Suggestions welcomed. Currently investigating Transmit ...

    I really can't see them using anything but SFTP, but like I said, perhaps it's only web based now? Might want to give them a call. At work I have our users do Fugu. SFTP is part of it and it's so easy to use even my most challenged users have no issues. Transmit is a paid app, but I like it for it's little extras that you will see doing a test drive.

    I tried connecting to your site using all protocols but never got a password prompt.
    Methinks you need to call, and sorry I really don't know what's going on.

    I decided to purchase a domain name (www.moonstoneartstudio.com), and am attempting to build a Redirect page from Verizon to my new host site. I cannot even get their "SiteBuilder" to work, and use my own html for this simple redirect ... what a pain.

    Now, I am using Dropbox.com to store the site, and use their Upload mechanism (Synchronizes everything), in lieu of ftp within Golive.

    I'm using Golive to do a "file" type synchronization locally, and since the result is in Dropbox, this gets synchronized to the web ... and my name www.moonstoneartstudio.com is now linked to my Dropbox index.html file. Simple and Free (other than the long-awaited purchase of my own Domain Name).

    Perhaps if Verizon ever wakes up, and decides to respect (and keep) its website users, they will add sftp to their abilities.
