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.

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.
