Can't FTP - Macromedia Dreamweaver

I'm using Dreamweaver MX on Mac OS X on an 866 G4. I cannot connect to any servers via FTP in Dreamweaver. I downloaded Fetch and was able to access my site via FTP. If Fetch can do it, Dreamweaver should be able to, but I can't figure out what settings are wrong. Anyone have any tips or things I could try out?...

    Its more often than not because you have the 'passive ftp' check box, in
    the DW ftp settings for the site, left unchecked.

    I tried that and it also doesn't work. Do I need to have the Passive FTP box in the network proxie window checked as well? What are other possible causes of this?

    Yes, you need to have them both checked. Do you receive any error message?

    I've tried both now. After I click Connect. It says, "host found, connecting..." then after about 2 minutes of this message it gives me this: An FTP error occured - cannot make connection to host. I've tried almost everything that I know how to do now and can't get it to work.

    I'm having the same problem. I attempt to login to one of my websites (and I have several, based on entirely different servers), and NONE OF THEM are working correctly. Once I attempt to login, I recieve the following message:

    "Waiting for server..."

    After about 30 seconds, a second message comes up:

    "The connection to the remote server has been lost. Click the connect button to reconnect."

    I am using DreamweaverMX on an Mac 867 G4. I've used DreamweaverMX for several months, with no problem, and now I can't ftp in to any of my websites. I have also been resorting to Fetch to make updates, which doesn't have any problem ftping in to any of the sites. None of my settings in Dreamweaver have been changed. They were working fine for several months and now they aren't. I'm wondering if it is possible that the preferences were corrupted or something?

    Any other suggestions?

    Bingo! I found my problem. I recently installed Apple's iChat and in order to get it to work properly, I had to turn on the Firewall settings in the OSX System Preferences. I just turned those settings off, and I can ftp in now with no problem!

    Tired that and it did not work.

    Thanks for the suggestion.
