    Okey, so I posted the same issue some time ago, and some how it sorted itself out (after fiddling with the DNS setup)

    Now that I've gotten a MacBook Pro the same darn thing is happening, and I just cannot figure it out.

    DW tells me the login info is wrong, which it isn't. So SOMETHING is blocking the traffick. I've copied the details from my old mac as far as DW is concerned, so me thinks it is the "sharing"-settings that is causing problems.

    But just to make sure:

    FTP Host: ftp.mywebsitename.com
    Host directory: <blank>
    Login: Username (correct)
    Password: Password (correct)

    Use passice FTP: Checked/ticked
    Rest unchecked.

    Firewall settings: (excerpts)
    FTP timeout: 300 sec
    Firewallport: 0


    Also: In "Sharing" on Leopard I've activated file sharing with FTP.

    WHAT could it be? Please help...

    If "Use passive FTP" is checked, try unchecking it. Toggling that setting works to clear up connection issues for me sometimes.

    BTW, Dreamweaver 8 is old. It was written for PowerPC, and I'm not surprised it's glitchy on your MacBook Pro.
