I use SFTP to upload our website to our server with InMotion Hosting. It works fine when I am home and use our ISP (BellSouth.Net - Now AT&T. It also works fine on 1 of our Philippine ISP connection, but not on the 2nd connection we have at another building. It also fails when I am at a hotel on another ISP's connection.
I was told that hotels tend to close port 22 and that may be the issue, so we asked our Philippine ISP to open port 22, which they claimed they did, but it still would not connect. They claimed the 2 servers were now the same, yet one will allow us to connect, while the other cannot find the server.
I am suspecting that there also needs to be a SFTP daemon running, that will pass the connection request onto our host server.
Can anyone shed more light on this? I would be very much in appreciation.
