Filezilla Client cannot connect to server even test is succesfull

#1 Post by GreenZil » 2018-11-27 18:55

Dear

After installing and testing the filezilla server on one laptop, I started to install and config filezilla client on another.
Both laptops are in the same local network.

I tried to connect the client to the file zilla server, I followed the configuration wizard on the client side and it was succesfully , I had to limit the port to one port make a succesful test as.

Now I try to connect to the server, but 'ts won't even get that far to connnect to the server.

Where could be the issue? Server is active.

You cannot use the dynamic DNS URL or the public IP in most cases, those are only valid for the outside world. Inside the LAN, use the private (LAN) IP of the server machine.

And, with only one port FTP will not work correctly. You need more.
