The login and the password correct, a server is accessible
It seems to me that this problem is not because of ScriptFTP. The FTP server does not allow anonymous access, this is the reason of the first error. The second errorr, when ScriptFTP tries to connect again, is probably because the FTP server, for security reasons, has included the IP of the computer where ScriptFTP is running in some kind of black list.

This is what it seems to me, but I could be wrong.
I inserted a delay between attempts - is useless. Besides, from the same computer I come into the same time other client ftp on the given server without problems. Even feigned the same situation with a login and the password - starts up at once as soon as I will enter a correct login and the password irrespective of number of unsuccessful attempts. ftp a server - standard iis on Windows XP SP3 pro + all hotfix. Excuse for my English, I use the translator.
