    FTP Integration Wizard - Wrong Host Name?

    Asked by udruga on August 27, 2012 at 06:17 AM


    I am trying to configure FTP integration for one of my forms, but cannot configure it on the first step. When I put my ftp Host name, username and password, and click on "Test Connection" I get message: "Wrong Host Name"

    Website url is www.udruga-solidarnost.com, ftp name is ftp.udruga-solidarnost.com.

    My FTP server is functional, I use it for both secure and non-secure connections, and cannot figure why it can't connect here.

    See image for info (I have deleted username).

    Please help... 

    Thanko you,

    Alessandro, thanks for your answer, but that does not help. Today, I have created a new user on my FTP server, granding all rights and can normally connect with my FTP client (Filezilla).

    Please see enclosed image, I still get the "Wrong Host Name" error message while trying to cinfigure FTP access on my forms...

    Any ideas?

    Hi,please note that in your first post your domain end with a .hr extension. Now you've attached a screenshot with a domain that ends with a .com extension. I may suggest you to double check. Thanks. Alessandro

    I have the same problem, I think that Jotform does not let you use a subdomain in the FTP Host name which, if true, is clearly a bug. If you try putting "udruga-solidarnost.hr" I bet it will tell "wrong login information" giving a hit that the domain went through OK... Could you fix this please Jotform ? thanks !

    There actually is no problem with using subdomains.  I just made a test and I was able to integrate my FTP with a test form without a problem
