Allow connections for the "fzsftp.exe" executable in your firewall. Servers are usually set up more strict, security-wise.

Thanks for the reply.

I added fzsftp.exe" executable in my firewall, but still doesnt connect.
I tried installed the client on other server with windows server 2012R2, it connected. The one have issue is windows server 2016.
here is the error message:
Status: Connecting to ssh.xxxxxxxxxxxx.io:29317...
Response: fzSftp started, protocol_version=9
Command: open "sftp-user@ssh.ssh.xxxxxxxxxxxx.io" 29317
Error: FATAL ERROR: Network error: Software caused connection abort
Error: Could not connect to server

then i turn off the symantec, got this one:
Status: Connecting to ssh.xxxxxxxxxxxx.io:29317...
Response: fzSftp started, protocol_version=9
Command: open "sftp-user@ssh.xxxxxxxxxxxx.io" 29317
Error: FATAL ERROR: Remote side unexpectedly closed network connection
Error: Could not connect to server

any idea what is wrong?

That's an unusual port for SFTP. Normally SFTP should be on port 22.
