ECONNREFSED with no changes to server or network config

#1 Post by Darkassassin07 » 2018-06-10 09:30

Today for the first time I got the error 'ECONNREFSED - Connection refused by server'.
Nothing shows up in the servers admin console or the log files at all.
I have not made any changes to this server's settings, firewall settings, anti-virus, network settings between it working fine yesterday and now.

I have tried disabling both my firewall (WF) and my anti-virus (avast), but I am still getting this problem with all connections (Localhost, lan, and wan)
I have also ran the network wizard in the FZ client which returned no errors.

I don't know what else I can do....



I have also searched the forums but can't find anyone else with this particular problem, at least none that weren't solved by firewall/anti-virus changes
but I have tried that.

1. Is the server service running?
2. Does the server listen on the port you're trying to connect to?
3. Are you using the correct protocol to connect (FileZilla Server does not support SFTP, for example)?

Like you and apparently many other Filezilla users I have been struggling with this problem for Wayyy longer than is reasonable - but what 'cha gonna do when
you needs what you needs?
Out of sheer desperation, FRUSTRATION and a need to get my website online I decided to try another FTP client, Win SCP - and guess what? Different client, same problem: "server refused connection." users
So I went to my Hosts Account, I found this message: IP address change (Reported)
Priority - Critical
Affecting Server -
We have completed migration to another data center. Clients using own DNS servers should update configuration with new IP address which is 195.201.179.80

when I pasted the new IP address into the "host" box along with my other information and BINGO! Problem Solved. I Hope this helps. Good luck!

The topic is about FileZilla Server, not about clients or hosting.
