    Default Help! FTP error. cant connect to host

    I put my site together last year and have not really tried to change it for a long time. I updated one of the pages on my computer today and when I tried to publish it, I got this error. "An FTP error occured. Can not make connection to host. 530- Your FTP session could not be opened. " I tried to connect with the site map and other pages as well, but nothing will make the connection. I'm on a cable modem and I'm able to get online with Internet Explorer and Outlook Express, but I cant seem to get past this error message when using Dreamweaver. Please help!!

    Perhaps they have a rule of changing access to the ftp if not used for a period of time.

    As far as I remember, now that Geocities was bought by Yahoo you can no
    longer have free FTP access. You only get FTP access if you become a
    premium member.

    Thanks for your help everyone. I fixed it. In the site definition dialogue box, I changed the FTP host to ftp.burrjohnson.com. Its always been ftp.geocities.com cause thats where my site originally was before I changed it. But when I switched to the domain name burrjohnson.com I was told that I could leave the FTP host address as ftp.geocities.com and its always worked. I dont know why all of a sudden it stoped working that way. but when I made the change, I got on. Thanks again for your input.
