Before configuring BLS to upload a league to a website hosted by BPAA Web Services, the following information is required from them to enter into BLS:
  • User Name:  For example,
  • Password:  For example: XSP1283*
  • Host Address:  For example,
  • Upload Path: For example: /portals/0/standings    This is where the standings are uploaded to.


After you have obtained the required information, do the following:
  1. Open BLS
  2. Open the league
  3. Select SETUP > INTERNET > Web Uploads
  4. Select the BPAA Webservices tab
  5. Select YES to enable the league to upload to BPAA Web Services
  6. Enter the Username into the User Name field
  7. Enter the Password into the Password field
  8. Enter the Host Address into the Host Address field
  9. Enter the Upload Path into the Upload Path  field
  10. Click TEST SETTINGS AND CONNECTION to verify that the information entered is correct.
  11. Click CLOSE


After the league has been configured, each week you will do the following:
  1. Process scores for the week
  2. Verify that the Standing Sheets are correct
  3. Select Weekly > Finalize > Upload League
  4. Click UPLOAD TO BPAA Web Services


If you are having problems testing or uploading, confirm your settings to make sure they are up to date and correct from what BPAA sent.  
  • Verify your settings entered into BLS with the settings provided by BPAA.
  • Verify your user name is entered exactly as the one BPAA has assigned to you for your hosted website.
  • Verify your password entered is entered exactly as the one BPAA has assigned to you for your hosted website. Pay attention to UPPER/lower case letters as this will make a difference.
  • Verify the host (server) is entered exactly as the one BPAA has assigned to you for your hosted website. 
  • Verify the Upload path is correct, per how your BPAA website is configured or per BPAA's instructions.
  • Verify the Port number is set to 21, unless you have configured the BPAA webserver to use a different port number.
  • Passive Transfer is set to YES.
  • SFTP should be set to NO.
  • SSL FTP Mode should be set to DISABLE.

Try the connection.  If you continue to get errors, go to next step.

  • Use an FTP program to verify the settings to eliminate BLS as the issue.
  • Download the free FileZilla FTP Client from
  • Start FileZilla
  • At the top of the screen, enter the host, username and password then click QuickConnect
  • Below those settings will be a log of what is happening.  If the screen reports an error, such as "Response: 530 User cannot log in." then this means that the username/password combination is not correct or that the server name is incorrect.  You will need to then contact BPAA Webservices to resolve issues with your account.
Contact BPAA Webservices and verify that your account info has not changed, such as being reassigned a new server, username and password.  We have communicated with BPAA and understand they have been moving several accounts to new servers and have reassigned new credentials, requiring you contact them directly for updated information.
