In side the PowerShell console of the Azure account run this command:

Code: Select all

az webapp deployment list-publishing-profiles --resource-group <group> --name <name>
This command should result in output similar to this:

Code: Select all

.....
{
  "SQLServerDBConnectionString": "",
  "controlPanelLink": "http://windows.azure.com",
  "databases": null,
  "destinationAppUrl": "http://your_web_site.azurewebsites.net",
  "ftpPassiveMode": "True",
  "hostingProviderForumLink": "",
  "mySQLDBConnectionString": "",
  "profileName": "your_web_site - FTP",
  "publishMethod": "FTP",
  "publishUrl": "ftp://waws-prod-dm1-239.ftp.azurewebsites.windows.net/site/wwwroot",
  "userName": "your_web_site\\$your_web_site",
  "userPWD": "2s5s67di5x6PX1E0cYJkEvtr9PZqf8XthRqHmHw7ekWz0dP9LLpz7XtRRcwMe",
  "webSystem": "WebSites"
},
.....
From that output use the publishUrl, userName and userPWD to define these Zeus FTP connection details:

Code: Select all

      Server: ftp://waws-prod-dm1-239.ftp.azurewebsites.windows.net
      UserId: your_web_site\$your_web_site,
    Password: 2s5s67di5x6PX1E0cYJkEvtr9PZqf8XthRqHmHw7ekWz0dP9LLpz7XtRRcwMe
IMPORTANT: Make sure the delimiting of the '\' JSON character is done.

Use the File, FTP, FTP Configuration menu to define a Zeus server connection for that srever.

With that configuration in place use the File, FTP, Open from FTP menu and in the resulting dialog enter in this url:

Code: Select all

ftp://waws-prod-dm1-239.ftp.azurewebsites.windows.net/site/wwwroot
Zeus will now connect to that server using those user and password details.

EXTRA DEBUGGING: To debug the FTP handshaking use the Options, Editor Options menu and in the General section turn on the Debug tools, macros and executables options.

Next use the Macros, Macro/Debug Output menu to open the debug output window.

Finally reconnect to the FTP site and the handshaking will be displayed in the debug output window.
