    Can you ping dove.synchro.net from that same system? Seems to be working for me and others.

    Can you elaborate (e.g. what's the exact error message, what FTP clients did you try to use)?

    In your previous message, you said the error was "No such host" - but if you can ping it, then obviously the hostname (dove.synchro.net) is good and it's up. You could try replacing dove.synchro.net with vert.synchro.net, but that would be very unusual if that actually fixes the issue. Worth a try.

    No, not hard-coded. The hostname is configured in SCFG->Networks->QWK->Hubs->VERT->Call-out command-line.

    Hello Digital,

    Can you paste the exact error message here?

    2/28 06:09:49p QNET Call-out: VERT
    2/28 06:09:49p QNET FTP Session with dove,synchro.net failed: Error: No such host is known.
    2/28 06:09:49p QNET Call-out to: VERT returned 1

    That should answer your questioj about the error message and what generated it

    if you can ping it, then obviously the hostname (dove.synchro.net) is
    good and it's up. You could try replacing dove.synchro.net with

    SHould I have entered dove.vert or simply VERT ?(I used the default of VERT

    Hello Digital,

    2/28 06:09:49p QNET Call-out: VERT
    2/28 06:09:49p QNET FTP Session with dove,synchro.net failed: Error: No such host is known.

    Yes, and in that error message I see "dove,synchro.net" - not "dove.synchro.net". See the difference? Looks like you made a typo there.

    In your previous message, you said the error was "No such host" -
    but
    if you can ping it, then obviously the hostname (dove.synchro.net) is
    good and it's up. You could try replacing dove.synchro.net with
    vert.synchro.net, but that would be very unusual if that actually
    fixes
    the issue. Worth a try.

    No, not hard-coded. The hostname is configured in SCFG->Networks->QWK->Hubs->VERT->Call-out command-line.

    SHould I have entered dove.vert or simply VERT ?(I used the default of VERT

    As shown at http://wiki.synchro.net/howto:dove-net and configued by default, the call-out command-line should be: *qnet-ftp %s dove.synchro.net YOURPASS
    Where you replace YOURPASS with your QWKnet account passowrd on Vertrauen. "VERT" is not anywhere in the call-out command-line by default and you shouldn't need to add it there. Just spell "dove.synchro.net" correctly this time.

    Dude. Do you ever bother to PROOFREAD anything? Your entire posts are
    full of typos, and the same thing is true of your command lines,
    apparently. LOOK at what you pasted up there above.... Sheesh.
