I get 'blocking call received' when trying to FTP.
We have heard reports of this though have never been able to reproduce it.

This message generally means there is a problem at your local network or somewhere between them and us.

The best thing we can recommend is that you wait a little while, then try again. If there really is something wrong on our end, there will be an announcement in the Status section of the account control panel, under Announcements .

As an added note for users of FileZilla and Zone Alarm: After installing FileZilla I received this error. Under FileZilla's SiteMap click Advanced tab and select passive mode instead of default.

I googled the error term and found a solution, which worked for me:

"This can happen when you are behind a firewall or are running a personal firewall like Black Ice Defender or ZoneAlarm.

To fix this, go into your FTP program settings and find the setting for "Passive Mode" or "PASV Mode". If it is turned on, turn it off. If it is off, turn it on."
