insecure ftp connection

#1 Post by pulv10 » 2018-11-29 18:03

I just updated FileZilla which I have done hundreds of times but now
getting this error.

This server doesn't support FTP over TLS.

If you continue, your password and files will be sent in clear over the internet.

It has a box to check that says "Always allow insecure plain FTP for this server.

Ipage is my host called them and they gave me a new sign in that didn't work but
worked for them. Now I have to wait 24-72 hours.

Contact your hosting provider and request that they configure their server so that it supports FTP over TLS. For every half-decent server provider this should be a trivial task not taking more than 15 minutes.
