Hello everyone, My problem is that I can't connect to a ftp server from the command line, I mean, if I write this in my terminal:

ftp ftp.bla.bla

the answer it gives me is:

ftp: ftp.bla.bla: Name or server unknown.

If I do this using Firefox it works fine, but it doesn't in Chrome or terminal. I use FC 16, been with Fedora since FC9 and never had problems connecting to ftp servers, and as I'm not an expert and I've been searching a lot online, I just don't know what it could be. Sorry if the question is too fool and thanks. Laura

Hello, I wanted to tell you that I could solve it, at least for now, using the IP of the server instead of the name...I don't know if this is a solution (I don't think so), but it's working for me at this moment. Thank you all.
