I am running FZ and have been sucessfully been using the server for the past year or so. I recently ran into problems with it not working. This is the error I get when I try to connect to the server via the server interface.

FileZilla Server version 0.9.31 beta
Copyright 2001-2009 by Tim Kosse (
Connecting to server...
Error, could not connect to server
Trying to reconnect in 5 seconds

I was recieving this error before I upgraded to the newer 0.9.31 beta (hoping the upgrade would fix the problem). I am running windows vista ultimate x64. I started by checking the port forwarding on my router and it seems to be working fine. Then checked the firewall in Vista and it also seems to be ok. I deleted and remade the exceptions in the firewall just incase and still no luck. I have also tried stoping and restarting the service as well and that does not solve the problem either. I am at a loss and have no idea why it would just quit working. Any help would be apriciated.

Connecting the admin interface to the service is a local connection, forget the router in this case.

I could imagine only two possible problems:

1) UAC blocks the admin interface.

2) The admin port has been changed and does not match anymore. Default is 14147. Also try 1077.

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!
