Thanks for the feedback.
There is likely a great deal of servers on which BeFTP will actually fail to login and/or communicate properly...developers tell me there are at least 20 flavors of the FTP exchange standard and far not all of them are currently covered.
We may eventually get there.
At the time being, you can try and see if changing the password to anonymous@ would make any difference. I would actually expect not, but I am short ot suggesting what the problem could be other than the above mentioned protocol dialects.
What is more interesting is that the socket connection is apparently working on GPS/BIS.
I take it this does not include BES, right?
If so is Christopher the only one here on BES/BIS that has problems connecting?
And, for those of you who may have better understanding, are BES and BIS two alternative methods of achieving TCP connectivity?
