I am able to connect to my site using the FTP client in DreamWeaver but when I try to connect with FileZilla this is what the output is:

Status: Resolving address of
Status: Connecting to
Status: Connection attempt failed with "ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server".
Error: Could not connect to server

FileZilla is easier to use considering I am uploading files from folders located in various places on my hard drive so I was hoping someone could tell me how I might get it to work. I know the host, user name, and password are correct and I am using Port 21. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

Looks like DW is allowed in your firewall(s), but FileZilla is not. Thus FileZilla is blocked. You must allow FileZilla to communicate freely.

FTP connection problems? Do yourself a favor and read Network Configuration.
All FileZilla products fully support IPv6.
All support requests per PM will be ignored!
