How do I check Dreamweavers' FTP log?

When you connect to a server using Dreamweaver's FTP feature, Dreamweaver generates an FTP log. This log lists the transactions which occurred between Dreamweaver and the server during the connection. To explain the transactions, the log displays line-by-line standard codes and commands.

Many FTP problems can be identified by reading the codes and commands in this log.

How does the [Dreamweaver] site cache work?

To expedite site updating, Dreamweaver can create a site cache file to store information about all the links to other files and assets within a site.

The site cache file is created when you select the Cache option in the Site Definition dialog box, and the site cache updates invisibly as you use Dreamweaver to add, change, or delete links to files and assets on your local site.

What is Passive FTP? (and where does Dreamweaver fit in?)

There is a way to get around the firewall difficulty. In "Passive" FTP your computer establishes the second connection, not the web server. Most, but not all, web servers will allow Passive FTP connection. Most firewalls will allow your computer to transfer files in this second connection to the web server (just as it allowed your computer to establish the first connection). The Dreamweaver FTP client has the option to establish Passive FTP.
