    Default FTP server set up - CS Golive!

    :roll: my head is spinning...help!
    I am new to CS GoLive and just need some help with setting up the ftp server in the server settings box.
    Can anyone advise me on what exactly do I need to enter within these following fields:

    Nickname: (currently displaying - server_1)
    Protocol: (drop down menu - ftp)

    Server: ?
    Directory: ?
    Username: ?
    Password: ?

    I have contacted my ISP - tiscali and they have advised me to use - ftp.myweb.tiscali.co.uk within the server field (I then have used my same tiscali username and password within those same fields and for the directory I have tried with - myweb.tiscali.co.uk/mydomainname.
    This is not working (obivously!) any one with GoLive server setting knowledge?
    Thanx, thanx and thanxxxxxxxxx in advance!

    resepeace :roll:

    Default

    The setup depends on your server.

    I would use what they told you

    Nickname: (this is reference name)
    Protocol: FTP

    Server: ftp.myweb.tiscali.co.uk
    Directory: /public_html (this is usually what it is, could also be /www all depends on the server, you should leave it blank to go to the default ftp folder)
    Username: tiscali_username (not sure if tiscali needs an @tiscali.co.uk to logon to their server, if they do enter it as your_username@tiscali.co.uk if not, just enter it is username)
    Password: ...this is obvious

    Make sure you don't have a firewall that's blocking the connection either.
