An unknown WinNet error has occurred (code 12110)

Hi,

I've been getting the error for a long time when I try to publish my webpage.  I've checked on the internet, Microsoft and every where else I can think of with no results.  If I close the error message and click Publish again (over and over) my update will finaly publish.

I'm using Front Page 2000 on a Vista Premium computer.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Phil

Last updated March 6, 2019 Views 854 Applies to:

The error is not common, but occurs occasionally with FP2000. Google searches show results from the last 10 years with no real solution.
The error means that an FTP session is already in progress - possibly the last command FP2000 isssued to the server has not completed before FP2000 issues the next command. If this is true, then the error is caused by a combination of a slow server and a bug in FP2000 - the bug is unlikely to be fixed now.

Is there a way to end the previous ftp session?  Does this occur in other versions of Front Page?

Thanks,

The Google search results I looked at were all for FrontPage 2000 (no other versions) - except one for a home made FTP client. Closing FrontPage may fix it; rebooting the PC will fix it - though that's a bit extreme, and with either method, the "cure" may not last long.

The Google results mentioned "talking to your host" for a cure.

Hi again,

Still working on this.  Does frontpage 2003 have this problem?  Maybe I should update to 2003.

Thanks,

Phil

As I said earlier, all references to this error on Google were for FrontPage 2000. I have never had this error in any version of FrontPage or Expression Web.

Expression Web 4 uses its own FTP engine, so will be unlikely to generate any wininet errors. But it uses the same HTTP publishing if you are using FrontPage extensions. Moving your site from FrontPage 2000 to Expression Web will require a lot of work - shared borders will have to be removed to start with. Expression Web also has almost zero support for FrontPage navigation.

FrontPage 2003 is no longer available as a supported product. You may find a copy on E-Bay.

What I found is that if the publishing dialog hangs while listing files on the FTP server, hit the "cancel" button and then publish again.  It looks like canceling may close the FTP connections allowing the process to work properly the next time.
