Software: Dreamweaver sftp connection issue
If Dreamweaver errors on connecting to your SFTP site do the following:
1. Verify your username and password.
2. Test it manually from a putty or filezilla type program to make certain your credentials work.
3. Reenter the data into Dreamweaver’s site management – server section.
4. Try to connect from Dreamweaver – If the error still occurs, you will want to connect several times one after another. For some reason Dreamweaver throws the error up before trying to make the connection. I find that trying to upload a file several times in a row will finally force Dreamweaver to actually try to connect.
