Can't Publish to FTP Yahoo/Geocities account

I'm a new user of City Desk. My problem is I can't get the right dialog written in the locations/publish locations tab. Yahoo/Geocities FTP wont accept my upload. How do I do this properly so it uploads?

Last time I used Geocities it didn't allow FTP connections for non paying users.  I.E. the free webspace required you to go through their wonky file manager.

If that's still the case then you'll have to publish the hard way and won't be able to do that within Citydesk.

Try to switch to passive mode. Tick the little box marked Passive Mode (usefull inside firewalls), when you are editing your location.

Edit: It says Passive Mode (Helpfull inside firewalls).

It worked for me, when I encountered the problem.
