Thread: uploading a web page (port blocking)

    Default uploading a web page (port blocking)

    Hi,
    I tried to connect to the AOL file space area the other day to upload a web page change, but my webpage software cannot connect any longer (used to be able to and worked fine for port 21); I am wondering if ZAP 7 might be automatically blocking port 21.
    Is there a way I can check this?

    You can check the log viewer and see if it is getting blocked. But also check and make sure that you are using passive file transfer instead of active.

    Regarding "passive file transfer instead of active.", is that a ZAP setting, or the web authoring software setting?
    In Namo
    WebEditor 4, which I am using, I do have the "passive" checkmark enabled.

    You have it selected right where it needs to be. Did you look in the logviewer in ZA to see if port 21 was getting blocked? Who is your ISP? Some mom and pop ISP's block ports when they get a large amount of unusuall traffic on them.

    No, haven't had a chance to look yet, but will.
    ISP is comcast and previously AOL, but I think perhaps the problem is in the way Namo (the webeditor) is communicating with AOL's FTP space where the webpages are stored.
    Using AOL or comcast as the ISP (dial up and broadband) I use the same "publish" screen and instructions from
    the same Namo software I always did, but one day it just started saying it couldn't connect.

    I may just have to get a new web editor and rebuild the pages

    ?

    hmmmm, come to think of it, I sort of did.
    I shutdown ZAP and tried to connect through the web editor publlish screen and it would not connect that way either.

    Then I started ZAP back up again

    Does AOL have a web based FTP client? You could build the pages on your computer and then upload your pages that way.Personally I use AceHTML to write pages and AceFTP to upload them, but then I also don;t have to worry about using AOL's service. I have my own server.

    "Does AOL have a web based FTP client?"
    If I understand what you are saying, yes (?)
    In other words, I use a webeditor program (Namo WebEditor) to build the pages, then use its "publish" screen to connect to AOL and upload the website.

    Nope. If you go to your AOL admin page, is there an FTP client built in to the admin section?

    Well, as you may know, AOL is kind of goofy.
    There is an admin section of sorts and I can supposedly manually connect to FTPs that way, and the one used for uploading websites (at least when all was working well) was members.aol.com
    (but that was handled very well by my web editor in the past).


    Thank you,Mike
