Filezilla return "Network Error:Connection Refused"

#1 Post by ajithjoy » 2012-10-22 13:41

Hello,

I am facing issues when I try connect to FTP server using filezilla. Im always getting error "Error: Network error: Connection refused" "Error: Could not connect to server".

I have tried with 2-3 ftp servers where I have access. But nothing worked out. It was working sometime back and stopped working all of a sudden.

Can anyone help to figure out what is going wrong ?

Regards,
Ajith

You should unblock FileZilla in your firewall.

For some reason, the server doesn't accept your login data. Strangely, there's no error text. Check with server support if your FTP credentials are still valid.

This is a common FTP server many engineers using for uploading there data to another office located in another geographical location. All are using same login ID and password. For others it is working and for me it was working sometime back and it stopped working. Still for others in the same office it is working. That is why Im wondering... :(

Rampant firewall on your machine perhaps?

Are there any ''unusual'' characters in your password?

There is no unusual characters - only alphabets are there...

What is your operating system? Which firewall products do you use?

Have you talked to your server administrator or server hosting provider yet?
