Thats like the Terminal from when I try to connect to my webspace using the terminal....

can anyone tell me what "I won't open a connection to [my ip address] (only to [some weird ip]) means. Any way I can fix it?

the [weird ip] is if you try "ping", you'll see it when its resolved. as for a fix, i'm not sure. do you have any kind of firewall up? ipfw maybe? brickhouse? or maybe from the sharing pref in sysprefs?

At any rate, do yourself a favour and install a decent command-line ftp client like lftp (it compiles cleanly on 10.3, and is also on fink). It won't fix your problem, but it's a much nicer client.
