ftp connect using special ftp account

Hi, trying to connect with special ftp account I am receiving 530 error. I am entering the same password as for my GoDaddy login, username - provided from special ftp accounts.

I'm not sure what you mean by "Special FTP" - If you are referring to SFTP, the S is for Secure. This requires a different setting in your FTP program as it uses a different port. 


If you are referring to something else, perhaps you can post a screen capture and hide the user name / password, but allow us to see the other settings.
