Before reading this.. please note that i am new to Dreamweaver, so if I'm not making scene you know why! :-?

I have looked into web hosting today, and have been given the details by TPG Internet (my internet provider) for my 30mb free web space.. I have entered all relevant details into Dreamweaver but unfortunately it keeps coming up with an error when I click “test” (AN FTP ERROR OCCURRED CANNOT MAKE CONNECTION TO HOST. THE REMOTE HOST CANNOT BE FOUND.) I thought that there must have been an error with the details which I put in.. so I called TPG and the details which they had given me were correct..

If anyone has any suggestions on what else i could be doing wrong i would greatly appreciate it :-)

Hello Edbr,

Thanks for your reply! I ended up downloading the program CuteFTP which has connected fine without any errors... Though for some reason it is only showing my html pages without the attached css and images (basically just text is showing) Do you know if im suppose to do anything with my files in Dreamweaver before transfering them?

Dreamweaver gives you that error if you have your remote info entered incorroectly. That includes specifying the host directory.

If you gave us a link to your site we might be able to help out.
