How do I set up Dreamweaver MX for FTP access ?
This requires FreeProxy V3.6 or above
Use the following steps:
Create a FreeProxy FTP port
Stop and start FreeProxy
Step 1: Create a FreeProxy FTP port
From the FreeProxy Control Centre, click the "Port" button.
For Dreamweaver to work correctly, the proxy option MUST be USER RemoteID@Remotehost.
If this is different to an existing Port definition you may already have created, then you should create another FTP port definition as shown below, but this time with the port number set to some other value such as 15021. If you use 15021 here then you will also need to use 15021 in the setup of Dreamweaver.
Note: you will have different IP addresses to those shown in the diagram above.
Step 2: Stop and start FreeProxy
From the FreeProxy Control Centre, select Save.
Stop the FreeProxy control centre and then start it again for the changes to be effective.
Step 3: Configure Dreamweaver MX
In Dreamweaver MX:
Edit -> Preferences
Under "Category", click on "Site"
Change the filled in options as you would for directly connected FTP.
In addition, for FreeProxy set the following:
Firewall host: set to the IP address or host name of the PC running FreeProxy.
Firewall port: set to the port number you set as the Client Port in FreeProxy (see step 1)
