Hello, I am having a problem that hopefully someone can help me with. FIrst, I have a remote site that can make use of ASP pages. But the SQL server is in my clients office behind a firewall. I opened up a port (7075) so I can put the IP and then a colon and it should work. The problem is that it doesn't. So, here are my questions:

1. what goes in the remote server? The hosted site or the SQL server box?
2. what goes in the Host DIrectory box?
3. If I leave them blank the test says it connects perfect but when I go to connect to the remote site (which is set up as the IP address with the open port) it says AN FTP ERROR OCCURED - CANNOT GET REMOTE FOLDER INFORMATION
4. When I connect to the testing server, the hosted site it connects fine.

Can ANYONE PLEASE Help me figure this out?

Thanks in advance. Victor

Hi Victor,

The SQL box doesn't really have anything to do with the setup for Dreamweaver. Here's how you should setup your site:

1. Local: Your local folder, like C:\My Documents\MySite

2. Remote. The remote host. If it uses FTP, provide the FTP details here

3. Testing. A (local) testing server. Can be on your local machine, or somewhere else like a machine in your network or a remote machine.

Now, when you create a new page, you can test it on your (local) test machine. When you're happy with it, you can put it live on your remote server.

In your Connection settings for the database, you can use the IP address of the SQL Server. You just have to hope (or check) that your host support connecting to this port as well.

What you should put in Host Directory depends on your ISP. Sometimes it's the root folder, sometimes it's something like /YourUserName. You should contact your host for more details.

Does this help?
