I'm stuck with the same problem, except that I typed in "sftp://", as mentioned in the movie.

Try connecting using nautilus (file browser) or Places->Connect To Sever... You will get a similar error. I have done alot of reading on this, and it is probably your hosts fault. I have been told that is because the reply name of the FTP server is too long. Apparently this problem has been fixed in an update, i am still getting an error tho.

I am using fileZilla while looking for a solution, is there any plugins or anything for bluefish that have ftp? Or a new editor with ftp built in?

Also can i mount a ftp directory or similar using different methods?

I have the same ftp problem with bluefish. Nautilus and xterm connect to my ftp server just fine. Installing the gnome virtual file system with synaptic didn't help. BTW - bluefish flat doesn't work on my macbook.
