Win 7 pro 64 bit and no i have not tried another ftp client, kinda dont want to either cause paid big $$ for creative suite and i do most my designing and coding there.

are you able to log in elsewhere using the same credentials? putty, FireFTP , etc. what is your OS you are running DW on?

tried filezilla and nothing so i opened a ticket thx bro!

I hear ya! However, it would be good to test your login from another application to find out if this is a DreamWeaver issue, or a problem with the login username and password.

FireFTP, Putty, NotePad+++ are all free and can use SFTP connections…

Also, as a suggestion: it is bad practice to use “root” to login. You will want to create another user account for managing your websites and such.
