Post subject:  another newbie stumped by Dreamweaver

I have been trying to upload a site that I prepared with Dreamweaver. I followed the various forum topics - and still seem to be stumped!!

The ftp host that the e-mail told me to use is elipye.freefronthost.com (I am using a free service)

in the Dreamweaver box "host directory" I have tried:

my username is elipye

the e-mail told me that my path was /www/

I tried directly uploading a simple index.htm, and image using the file manager, and that worked fine. But I would like to get the Dreamweaver utility working for some thing a bit more complex.

If this was a problem with a firewall, wouldn't I have the same problem if I directly uploaded the file?

no it dosen't log in from Dreamweaver. When I run test, I usually get a message that username or password are invalid. Now I seem to be getting an error message that the remoet folder cannot be opened !!!

Searching through Macromedia's site, I found that there were some technical issues which could be fixed with update download. Downloaded the update (they even had one for the evaluation version!!!) and if I set the host directory to blank it worked. The file don't go exactly where I want them, but with the file manager, I can at least move them easily.

Thanks for looking at my posts - this is a very useful forum :D
