Continuing the discussion from Publishing/connection anomalies:
I recently returned from a trip to HongKong and during my stay there accessed my web servers at GoDaddy from the hotel ISP and can report that I was able to connect with all 6 streams.
Where this brings me back to is that the problem is lurking somewhere in Spectrums domain.
Back home I again suffer the single stream FTP update from my Spectrum endpoint except this time I decided to use a PPTP tunnel too DC with Express VPN and got 6 “full connects”
So the problem only exists when FTP’ing via Spectrum and their local node.
I called up Spectrum feeling confident that I had an argument and ask them to find out whats going on. Their response was that because I am a residential customer I do not have a fixed IP address and then sent me a copy of their Terms and Conditions which mentions nothing about restricting FTP - and that although this is the case “its implied” Haha!!
So they suggested I get a fixed IP (ie business account) so they put me through to their Business Tech folks who laughed at what I had been told. They stated there is no difference to the FTP spec on residential and Business service. But maybe its my Arris modem…
The short term answer for me is to use VPN for FTP uploads
BTW - I tried to set up SFTP on GoDaddy and so far have not been able to get it to work. I think others reported similar experiences.
Seems the world is not as black and white about stuff like this as I had hoped.
