For over a month "FTP Server status" has indicated, for "Host unreachable (no DNS)". Yet my client will happily upload results to this server.  Less happily, after 24 hrs they do not appear within your stats, and have to be resubmitted.  Perhaps, you could remove this server from the servers.csv file until such time this issue is resolved.

Uh?  If there is no DNS, how does Muon1 even find the server to upload to it?

Tomorrow I'll look and see if I've been receiving anything from the wmikrut server recently.  Generally, the only way results can get lost like this is if the server is accepting uploads but not doing downloads.

Heres proof he is receiving results:

20080528-170550 59 results sent to

And no, at this time, your server has not received them.

The logs say I've not managed to download anything from wmikrut's server since at latest November 2007. I've not been able to get any e-mail response from the guy on a few attempts since then, so I'll remove the server.
2008-05-29 17:52:35
and what about, it says no ftp, are you able to download anny results from this server?

The last I downloaded from matrixworld was May 23rd at 3pm (i.e. one week ago).  I've e-mailed the guy who runs it to ask why his FTP server is no longer working.
2008-05-31 11:26:53
The problem is solved.  The server (matrixworld server) works fine.

A application was hanging.

Does require a purgative?  Though, it is over twenty hours since I fed it results,
"20081002-165035 51 results sent to"
it has, so far, failed to disgorge them.
2008-10-04 21:19:51
Today, I resent these results through the very same server, and they were correctly regurgitated.

that was my error, the hd ware full and i didn't saw that.

RGtx, you can manually edit the servers.csv file with a text editor to remove an entry.  Just be sure to set it to Read Only or it will get overwritten quickly by an update.
I've done that in the past when servers got stuck.

Somebody may have to give their server a boot.

I'm not quite sure what I did, but it's working again now.
2009-11-06 15:24:58
"but it's working again now" Not for long, it ain't.

Looks like it stopped some time on Nov 3rd.  I've rebooted the server, see if that helps.

It's now accepting connections.  I may have closed it instead of minimising it to the tray the previous time.
2009-11-12 19:39:50
and it's down again

It seems that GuildFTP gets very slow when the connection log gets long (maybe a slow sort process or something).  Anyway, I've put a scheduled job to clear the log each night, that should make it more responsive, though I'm not sure if that's the problem.
2009-11-16 23:38:38
That's why I switched from guildftp to serv-u a long while ago.  Back in the days with alot of flushes the program tended to hang or crash.  Nothing bad about guildftp, it's a great program.  Just serv-u is using resources better, even with long logs.

Thanks, if I get any more trouble with it I'll consider switching (or changing the recommendation in the instructions).
2009-11-17 18:06:44
i'm started with serv-u and i never got any problems with it.
i'm using it for over 5 years now. 
2009-11-25 15:25:33
oke stephen, start installing serv-u

Problem that time wasn't the software, it was the hardware for some reason going into hibernate/low-power mode and shutting down either its HDD or NIC.

stephen please restart youre ftp server(software)
Stephen Brooks
2010-01-06 11:03:01
I can see the server logging onto it now and another user, so it's working.
2010-01-18 16:43:23
stephen please restart youre ftp server(software) again
