Error Message: Expected key exchange group packet from server

#1 Post by venturaa » 2019-07-12 17:52

I am receiving this error message when attempting to connect to a site - this is my first time receiving this message. Would I need to upgrade my FileZilla or contact the vendor which this site is associated with?
Thank you in advance!

If I attempt to connect to this server from my end, the server correctly sends a key exchange group packet.

Which version of FileZilla are you using?

I upgraded my FileZilla Client to 3.14.1 and it is now working.
