I had the same problem today with a client of mine and I figured out the problem myself. A lot of people think this is a firewall issue but I disabled my firewall and it still didn't work for me. What you need to do is to access your router and create a single port forward - forwarding port 21 - using TCP to the local IP address of your FTP server. You have to know the local IP address of your FTP server.

In your router, you can check the IP address of the device that acts as your FTP server in the basic setup area, since most everyone is on a DHCP connection just click on 'DHCP reservation' if your router supports it and you can even reserve IP address of your home or office devices that way if you need to powercycle (reboot) your network you still retain the same local IP.

Example, I have a Dlink DNS-323 NAS Server that serves my ftp and I just go to my Linksys router's port forwarding portion. Here's an attached picture of what I did. Anyway, I hope this helps people that have been having this issue. Cheers!

single port forward - forwarding port 21
Wrong, not enough for Passive mode. Network Configuration

Well, you can say wrong. However, I fixed it on 2 separate ftp servers... It may not work for everyone but it's worth a try...

Oh and by the way, by default FileZilla is set to passive. I never had to change settings in FileZilla at all so yes I am running in passive mode.

We speak about the FTP server (Passive data ports). FileZilla Client in Passive mode needs no port forwards whatsoever, as in Passive mode all connections are outgoing client-side.

I ran the network configuration wizard and everything works great on there. I go to login and I get this message:

opened the port on the firewall as well and did every time I could find. I ham plugged directly into the modem (this solved the problem i was having earlier with the connection wizard.

Getting the same here. Looks like there really is no FTP server running at that address.

I am having the correct FTP details, when I am trying to connect to the server it says request denied. Witht the same login info, if I tried with Cute FTP it is working, what may be the problem?

hi, I am from Malaysia and learning to configure FTP in my company.
the network infrastructure as below:
3 ISP(streamyx, unifi, my kris), 1 of the ISP consist of router&modem and the others 2 only have modem, 3 of the ISP also will connect to my firebox(firewall). From the firewall it will link to switch hub then only reach my PC.
I have done configure in the router & firebox, but seem it wont connect by outsider. Do i need any extra configuration.
what i configure is portfowarding in dlink router for port 21 and port 50000-60000. For firewall, I have set in policy manager, to allow trusted & external connection for port 21 and port 50000-60000.

in my client side(external network) when connect it show
Status: Delaying connection for 1 second due to previously failed connection attempt...
Status: Connecting to 1xx.1xx.1xx.xxx:21...
Status: Connection attempt failed with "ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server".
Error: Could not connect to server

the client side is ok when I run ftp wizzard, so I assume the configuration in ftp server went wrong.

what do i still need to set in the server? example in edit-> setting-> passive mode

one more thing, the IP i key in filezilla client is the IP I saw in whatismyip.com. Is that correct?

I guess the client is stopped even before reaching the FTP server. Does the server log show any incoming connection?
