More webcam ftp problems

I am trying to get my Foscam F19900P webcam to connect to wunderground. The camera is set up correctly, registered correctly (fractonimbusCAM6) and associated with my PWS (IMERIM5) but the Foscam app tells me that the FTP login failed. I can log into the webcam.wunderground.com site via FTP using Filezilla, using the same login information. Does anyone have any secret trick to get Foscam webcams to connect via FTP?  See screenshot of configuration.

Also, setting FTP to PASV similarly fails to connect

Hmmm. it started to work. One image at least. For the moment, the Foscam app isn't currently sending error messages. Being a pessimist, I am expecting them to return :-(

Spoke too soon. The error message is back. Seems the wunderground FTP system leaves a lot to be desired.

Two days later: Uploads have been somewhat flakey, but still more or less working. The webcam "movie" never seems to include recent uploaded images. The Wunderground people need to do a lot more work to improve reliability. :(
