Yes I have been selecting from the database list.
I see the hostname has a dot or full stop included
and wonder if that is a problem for the server or software?
I cannot see a full stop allowed in the warning sign attached.
I realise now that the connection creation form is creating one
combined file for the local and remote server.
That will help if I can get the remote server to open in File Zilla!
The file works OK for localhost but not for remote connections.
please see PM
