When I FTP to osprey.unisa.ac.za I receive the following error message:

421 Service not available

Question: Has anyone ever had such an error?

Unisa's network sometimes goes down for short periods of time. Have you tried again?

I have been trying about 30 times per day. I have been:

1. Googling for information to trace and rectify the problem - alas, no success so far
2. I thought it could be a firewall issue, therefore, disabled my firewall, tried - and failed. Off course, I did restart my firewall.
3. Had a word with my provider.

I will just keep trying to find a solution.

Someone else also had this problem from home - from work no problem. Osprey is up 99,9999999 infinity(depending on the Unisa network which links it to you but if you have tried 30 times then it is unlikely to be the unisa network), so it is difficult to suggest solutions since it now appears to be local to you. I cannot try and solve it for you since firewall software differs in its functionality - maybe you missed a tiny hidden setting? Point is - the problem is definitely not Osprey side .I just connected again from home with no problem.

Once you installed the software WS_FTP, Did you only fill out the text boxes under the "General" ? Are there any additional information that needs to be filled out under startup, advanced, and firewall?

For most FTP software, you only need to fill in the address osprey.unisa.ac.za, the login and password and connect. The defaults are fine. If I try with 3 different clients, I connect with all just providing this information.

There is an empty file personal in there. If you can see it in there, then it is there.

Discovery activity 3-3 requires that one add a banner advertisement. My problem is that I cannot see if there is a problem
with the HTML language that I wrote. I do see where the banner is suppose to show; the hand pointer comes up when I move
the pointer over the flag position, but the cross is there - i.e. no banner shows. This is my html string:
.
<a href="http://www.danielsfurniture.com"; target="blank"><img src="dfbanner.gif" width="468" height="60" alt="danielsfurniture.com" border="0"></a>

I must be doing something wrong.

Thank you in anticipation

If it says incorrect login then it must be incorrect.... If it says it can find the server then it is a network issue.

I may be a bit late with this answer but I had a similar experience - try opening the ftp port on your router. I have a Billion router, if you do too I can give more specific instructions if you want.
