Connection timed out
on Aug 22, 2014 at 10:39:07 pm

I wasn't sure whether to post this here or somewhere is the web design forums..

I am trying to log on to sites via FTP to make some updates.

I've tried 3 sites, all of which I know the PW and user name is correct, and the connection just times out. No real errors, just that I haven't been connected because I've timed out.

I've logged on before, but not for a few months.

I have tried both FileZilla and Fetch which leads me to believe it's something with the settings on my computer...probably in the sharing section or something. But I have NO IDEA what to look for.

I'm using MAC os X 10.9.4.

I don't see anything that says "firewall" in the network or sharing sections so I'm not sure where to even start, as that was my first idea.

Any ideas?

Firewall settings are in the "Security and Privacy" section of your system preferences.
