Having trouble connecting via FTP
Having trouble connecting via FTP
Hi all,

I have a little issue, I am not able to connect to my VPS to upload files via FTP. The client I am using is FileZilla. I am however able to access the VPS via WinSCP by connecting via the SSH credentials.

The error I get is:
Quote:Status: Resolving address of
Status: Connecting to
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Status: Insecure server, it does not support FTP over TLS.
Status: Connected
Status: Retrieving directory listing...
Command: PWD
Response: 257 "/" is the current directory
Command: TYPE I
Response: 200 Type set to I
Command: PORT 192,168,1,101,185,107
Response: 200 PORT command successful
Command: MLSD
Error: Connection timed out after 20 seconds of inactivity
Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing
Status: Disconnected from server

Any help would be much appreciated.

RE: Having trouble connecting via FTP
Do you have firewall?

Disable PASV or open PASV ports in firewall.

1) Open FileZilla.

2) Click on Edit | Settings.

3) Open Connection menu on the left. Click on FTP menu.

4) Mark the Active radio button.

5) Click OK.
No support using PM (Auto adding to IGNORE list!), use the forum.
