ftp.whtech.com access denied?

Recommended Posts

Usually you can enter nothing at all for a password.

 

Now I just get "access denied" no matter what is entered.

 

Did something change in the last few weeks?

I'm using ftp://ftp.whetch.com ...

Okay, that doesn't work for me. It says "Loading..." and it doesn't respond (ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT).

Tried FileZilla. Anonymous FTP logon used to work. Password seems to be required (guess I also used to pass an empty string).

The http URI connects to the HTTP server (port 80), while the ftp URI connects to the FTP server at port 20/21, so the issue is probably with the FTP server only.

Ok I heard back from Don and he says "the latest ftp server software has a bug use http in the meantime" 

any word on when this will be fixed?  i'm working on incorporate a download of the latest MAME realease from the site within OoeyGUI and the easiest way is to use the ftplib with python.

If not, you may have to try http.client. WHtech's http server seems to be configured to deliver the directory content when you use a URL that points to a directory, so you should be able to load that page and parse it.

yea that's what I figured i would need to do.  So i pounded out the code to pull the site and parse for the latest version.  Working good on windows OS so far.

Yes, but this is HTTP(S), which requires a HTTP client, and not the ftplib.
