As I posted in 1 of the other threads, I too find SiteBoulder useless. I require ftp access. Tried it tonight (8/5, well the 6th about now), and was kicked out trying to cd to a dir and listing files.  Looks like its starting already.  Gee, thanks for nothing big-V.

Grrrrr.

This isn't much of a cost problem as I can get a real web site for much less that Verizon charges for the lowest upgrade option. It is just astounding that Verizon has the gall to claim that they are enhancing my online experience by restricting web site access to a buggy tool that does not work with most browsers. It lowers my opinion of Verizon without generating any additional revenue. It has reduced revenue from others I know who were paying extra per month for optional storage. They now have a real web site and they saved money because they now get 300GB of storage for less than Verizon was charging for 50 MB of extra space.

In talking to Verizon, I was offered a web site that INCLUDED FTP, for a charge of $6 per month.  (discount of 50%} for the first 6 months.  THis obviously begs the question as to why FTP is NOT secure on a free PWS, but the same FTP IS secure when I pay!

Been on the phone for nearly 4 hours...

 

I've spoke to verizon techs, Fios Support, E-Center, E-Care, DSL, Web Hosting, Email Department, Intuit Department, no one can tell me how to log in to download.

 

Apparently, they have disconnected early and we cannot lon on to download.

 

{word filter avoidance} frustrating.  No one there knows anything.  Maybe just one person shut it off.  How do we find him or her?

Issuing Store, Delete, and Move commands all work, still. I just uploaded a 3MB file to the account I have and it went without an issue (though with the typical "I'm going to terminate your connection right after upload"  behavior).

I have a feeling you're not able to use filezilla now? I like to know how they're going to resolve this. They'll probably want more money for what we've had all this time! Are there any free webspaces out there that you can still access with ftp? I'm just using mine for pictures. Tried one the other day called webs.com but they won't let you use ftp unless of course you pay for the it.

Try x10Hosting. They offer FTP access, and if you're in a place that doesn't offer FTP, also have a File Manager which works similar to FTP but done on the server over HTTP. They are strict on their ToS for uploaded materials like any other Free Host is, but that is no surprise considering people sign up for Free Hosting on the basis that it gives them Unmetered Disk and Bandwidth, and then start setting up download sites, using Rapidleech scripts and attempting to upload 1.6TB large files. Those are people who get killed by the ToS, but it's pretty simple to follow it.

 

FTP still works on Verizon. I just connected to my own server via FTP and files transferred with no issue, like Verizon promised. Of course, I use SFTP since I have SSH access to my own server, naturally.

Try going to www.supermedia.com (866-311-4186)

They are not associated with Verizon, and will give you 600 megs storage with FTP for $14.95 each month.

Btw, one Verizon tecchie gave me their number by accident from his computer, Superpages says they have been trying to get their number off of Verizon's database for two years, but nothing.

This indicates Verizon's level of computer savvy, as they cannot even get a competitor's phone number out of their database,

hahahaha
