    HughesNet does NOT SUPPORT FTP

    Does anyone know what is going on with Hughes Gen4 FTP not working. Last Friday, 3-28-2014, both my web cam and weather station quit uploading to my server. Had no problems for many months before. I tried WS_FTP and other clients and they would not work either. I bypassed the router, but no different. 4 computers with different FTP clients all quit working at the same time and have been down since. After 5 days with Hughes Tech Support, it was finally escalated to advanced tech support where I was promptly told in no uncertain terms, "Hughes does NOT SUPPORT FTP".

    There are several other users having the identical problem. It seems to be isolated to their proxy server with the address 69.35.xxx.xxx. I found that if I turn on VPN, all FTP starts to work again until I turn it off. Any ideas what might be going on other than Hughes just being jerks?

    Doubt it's a proxy server, more likely just a regular router.

    Sounds like they're dropping inbound FTP traffic. Try changing your FTP to a different port. A high number, like >10000.
