Error, can someone help me?

Post by Shark_^ »

Some time ago I have produced a forum at

At that forum is possible produce ranks and give an image to it.
I have searched several forums and looked at the support, and this way I
came that you must upload the images on your server, where phpbb is installed, in the map images (images/ranks). So I downloaded smartFTP.

Now the problem comes: I don't know what my server is.. . (Hetnet, adsl we have). I can't login. It does not succeed. But I also tried the server with my own loginname and password.
That went good, until I got the error 530 Authentication failed, sorry. See below:
SmartFTP v1.5.988.33
Resolving host name ""
Connecting to Port: 21
Connected to
220---------- Welcome to Pure-FTPd [TLS] ----------
220-You are user number 1 of 50 allowed.
220-Local time is now 18:48. Server port: 21.
220-This is a private system - No anonymous login
220 You will be disconnected after 10 minutes of inactivity.

331 User Paperclip014 OK. Password required

530 Authentication failed, sorry


221-Goodbye. You uploaded 0 and downloaded 0 kbytes.
221 Logout.
Server closed connection
Cannot login waiting to retry (30s)...
Continue to login attempt 2...

For these error I already have searched several forums of
smartFTP, (and with google) and people there said, your loginname or password is wrong.
I certainly know that both of them are right.
So what can it be? Please can someone give an answer? Thnx.

Sorry for my bad English, it isn't very well :? (I'm Dutch) I hope u understand what I said here..

I would ask your host for your login info although it does seem your trying to log in through an anonymous ftp account.
