Okay so i am a newbie. i built my site in cs3 and then my computer took a dump. i have cs4 now and for some reason i can' get dreamweaver to ftp into my site? fetch works fine but i am trying to set up a new site in dreamweaver and i can't connect to the server. i am on a mac book pro with 10.5.6 running. i am sure once i get this far there will be more questions.
thanks
chris

I use filezilla to ftp all my files.

On the mac you need to use the IP address not the standard ftp address.

So for example instead of

ftp.yoursite.com

you would use 192.547.68.25 for example

To get the IP address from your FTP address use this site

http://www.hcidata.info/host2ip.cgi

Just type into the Host Field and click get IP address.

No point in using a separate FTP program at all when Dreamweaver supports FTP I can't see the point.
