So tired of this error

#1 Post by CJStevens » 2021-02-28 23:23

I'm so tired of things working just fine and then, bam, there's a problem that can't be solved by the average computer user. I have been using Filezilla for years. I now got a new laptop and tried to install it but get this message:
You appear to be behind a NAT router. Please configure the passive mode settings and forward a range of ports in your router.
Warning: FTP over TLS is not enabled, users cannot securely log in.
Clearly it's not my router or the version on my older laptop wouldn't be working....but it is working just fine.
From what I can find, there is the suggestion to see the Network Configuration guide. Well that's just dandy for you techy guys but is of no help so the average computer user like me. I don't know what happened to now make FileZilla impossible to install unless I have a degree in computer technology. If I could understand the Network Configuration guide then I'd probably not be having this problem in the first place.
I've had it. I'll be downloading another ftp unless someone here can explain it to me in simple English.

Bye Bye FileZilla.....RIP

Even an average user should be able to read and download the correct program. You downloaded FileZilla Server, and this is most probably NOT what you want/need.

FileZilla Client works like it always did.

OK..this is crazy. I did exactly what I did before but it worked this time. I ever had a friend try and it didn't work for her. OK, so, if bitching works then I'll take that!!
