I am having some problems using the freebsd ftp program.
when I type;
ftp username.customer.netspace.net.au password
I get the following message;
servname not supported for ai_socktype
Am I using the right syntax? When I consulted the ftp
server support page it said;
"Once you have your ftp Client installed, you will
need to use the following settings to connect to
your personal webspace (lets assume your username
is test and your password is webpage):
hostname : test.customer.netspace.net.au
username : test
password : webpage
Also ensure that if your FTP Client gives you the
option to use "PASV" mode, that this is selected.
All you need to do at this point is upload the files
to the site and away you go".
Any help would be appreciated. If you reply could you please CC me
because I am not subscribed to the list.
Thanks for your time,
