    I've been trying to troubleshoot this issue whereby GarageSale can't connect to my FTP account at all.

    And so following the troubleshooting instructions from GarageSale here (http://www.iwascoding.com/mediawiki/index.php/Troubleshooting_FTP_Settings), I came to discover that the problem was not limited to just GarageSale. Apparently when I tried to log on through my command line FTP client, the same thing happens!

    Woeis-MacBook-Pro:Desktop woei$ ftp ftp3.ftptoyoursite.com
    Connected to ftp3.ftptoyoursite.com.
    220 ::ffff: FTP server ready
    Name (ftp3.ftptoyoursite.com:woei): test
    421 Service not available, remote server timed out. Connection closed.
    ftp: Login failed
    The problem is not with the server nor my home internet connection however. It obviously works on my Windows box, FileZilla (on my Mac) and CyberDuck. It just seems like the command line FTP client and GarageSale can't work.

    This issue has been driving me nuts.

    Anyone else knows where I should look next? Any help is much appreciated :apple:

    I'm not having any issues with the built-in FTP client nor Transmit.

    If I am just having issues with the built in client what does it mean?
