    Exclamation Hotmail & FTP problems
    Hotmail wont work.

    FTP wont work.

    I am annoyed.

    I am a switcher so I dont know what to do.


    Hotmail times out when attempting to connect to it. And the FTP simply crashes the Finder, even when I go command K. The FTP I use for work works with the PCs so its not the instability of the FTP.

    I connect to the internet via a wireless network.

    What ftp client do you use? Try Captain FTP.

    I've never had any difficulties with Hotmail. It works perfectly in Safari for me. (I've had an account since before Microsoft owned it.)

    And I agree, don't use the Finder for FTP if you can avoid it. Use Cyberduck or Transmit or CaptainFTP

    This is something to do with maximum MTU setting... or whatever that is... :confused:

    Hotmail - it has problems anyway as I have been told that it is not designed with Safari or the Netscape browser in mind.

    FTP - I downloaded a very easy and user friendly client Transmit2.


    All solved.
