ftp access

My ftp access problem is now solved, after nearly 16 hours and more than 20 email exchanges.

Don't know exactly what caused the problem I have yet to understand it but I was told that it's about external firewall issue at the hosting.

I have been using FileZilla for a long time but now being introduced SmartFtp something I need to get use to especially the user interface.

PS: they said it was a brute Force login attack against the SSHd service which had caused a huge number of process to persist.
