ftp connect 12029 error

Post by DW101146 »

Hello
I download your "Free Trial" 2.5a FtpVC Software. I followed the prompt and put in the required into. However it cannot connect to my FTP server, it comes back with a 12029 error code. I then opened a window "Command window" and the ftp connections works fine with the same userid and pass. any ideas?

This error (ERROR_INTERNET_CANNOT_CONNECT) typically means a network issue, such as a firewall blocking FtpVC from accessing the Internet. One possibility is a software firewall, such as ZoneAlarm or Microsoft Defender, that blocks programs from accessing the Internet.

Note that FtpVC uses WinInet services of Windows, also used by Internet Explorer (IE). In essence, all applications that use WinInet share IE settings, including proxy settings. So one way to test FtpVC connectivity is to try and connect to an FTP server in IE.

Did you checked for network related problems? I believe 12029 error appears due to problems belonging to your network configurations and settings. Here are the steps to do soo:

1. Click the Start button.
2. Type "identify and repair network problems"
3. Press ENTER.
4. The network diagnostic wizard will start, and conduct several memory tests.
