#3 FTP_synchronize Problem

I'm kinda new here and not very used to work with the FTP_synchronize plugin for Notepad++ so I must apologize if the answer to my problems is way too obvious, its just that I havent seen it yet...

I'm trying to get to log to my ClarkConnect Home Edition 3.1 via FTP_syncronize but I have 2 different error scenarios

1)
I use this configuration for loggin:
Address: 192.168.1.221 Port: 21
Username: user Connection Mode: Passive
Password: passkey
Timeout: 30 Transfer Mode: Automatic
Initial Directory: "/root"
[x] On connect subtree root folder
[x] Enable keep alive
[ ] Use profile cache

When on this configuration, I DO CAN connect to the server, but all I see in the "folder tree" is a folder marked with "/" and cant collapse it or anything so I see no files, no subfolders, no nothing.

Any advice on what am I doing wrong?

2)
I use this configuration for loggin:
Address: 192.168.1.221 Port: 22
Username: user Connection Mode: Passive
Password: passkey
Timeout: 30 Transfer Mode: Automatic
Initial Directory: "/root"
[x] On connect subtree root folder
[x] Enable keep alive
[ ] Use profile cache

As you can see the only change is the port number, when I use this configuration I get this message:
Multiline Response (3874): 2.0-OpenSSH_3.9p1
And I wait but I never get to connect.

I know maybe this is kinda "newbie" to ask, but I already searched the web and forums for anyone else to have met with this, so I'm asking here.

    Hi Juan,

    at least to your second scenario I can give you an answer:

    You can only connect to _FTP_ servers (server in the sense of a service). When you change the port number (default is 21 for FTP, but it could be anything in theory that the server administrator decided to set) this usually connects to a different service, e.g. in your example you set the port number to 22 (which is typically SSH, i.e. secure shell, on an average server) the FTP_synchronize plugin will try to connect to an FTP service running on port 22. As rhe message you quote above indicates an SSH service responds on this port. And FTP_synchronize doesn't talk SSH (or SFTP).

    BTW, I would love to see this feature being implemented, but currently it's not obviously.

    Hope this answers helps somehow,
    Peter
