Connecting to a www3 server?

Is there a shortcoming in CityDesk software that does not allow CityDesk to recognized a server's address like  www3.host.net  ?

www3 is just an arbitrary name... you can name your server anything you want.

maybe it's a config problem on your part?

My guess is a DNS problem on your end... check out:

The problem was finally found.  My ISP had unwittingly installed some new equipment modules at their site that rejected all ftp client access into their system--including  CityDesk.  Persistence and one-on-one cooperation solved this "reverse DNS" problem.  It set me back two weeks.
