Unable to get Instant Transfer to talk to new 1&1 FTP Account

Have just setup new FTP account at 1&1.

I am able to FTP direct to the account ( in IE or Command Line ) but cannot get OCP Instant Transfer to connect via FTP.
For the Host Name I am providing  <name>.co.uk  with the FTP User name and Password.

Anyone experienced anything similar?

Thanks

Could be lots of things (limitations on active/passive connections, non-propagated domain, different port, SFTP-only server, all spring to mind as possibilities), so I'd advise just not using it in this case and upload manually, it'll be less headache :).

I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.

Manual upload Automatic Install was perfect and took 2 mins to get to point of install. 
Didn't realise it was that easy.

Thank you

Maybe we should just remove the instant transfer option, everyone has good broadband nowadays.

Hmmmmm…

Your call, of course, but I know of many, many, MANY internet users (alarmingly, most from the US) who only have DUN.

They are generally located in the 'boonies', in areas that providers like AT&T and Verizon don't consider it worthwhile, or 'cost effective', to run broadband lines!

 :o

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Sadly, true. We pay extra fees to support high-speed internet in remote areas but many are still without. Heck, the US doesn't even make the Top Ten in either average or peak speeds:
Internet Speeds by Country

I understand the economics and geography of it but I am old enough to remember when there was no way we would not have been in the top three. Now we are just another aging empire in decline.
