  • Can't connect to my own FTP Server Using Filezilla

    i can connect to my FTP Server( 2008 ) using a webpage url, and download a file, but when using filezilla, i get:

    425 can't open data connection
    failed to retrieve directory listing
    421 timeout (120 seconds): closing control connection
    421 terminating connection
    connection closed by server


    any ideas?

        Try open 20 as well. Off the top of my head I can't remember which way round it is, but one is for data transfer and one is for ftp commands.

          thanks for your quick responce ConradJ!

          opened up 20, still doesn't work, ran wireshark, both filezilla and wireshark get my welcome message from the server, after showing the request for username and password,but after the Welcome Message, the client, being the requester, i am assuming

          request:PWD
          Responce:257 "/" is the currnet directory
          Request:TYPE
          Responce:200 Type set to I
          Request: PASV
          Responce: 227 Entering Passive Mode(Public IP Address)
          Request: LIst
          ufastro-instr > 60680 [SYN] Seq=0 Win=65535 Len=0 MSS=1260 WS=
          ftp > itelserverport [ACK] Seq=337 Ack=59 Win=65462 Len=0

          then the source goes to my router and then who has and tell etc.

            Reboot your router.

            Seriously.

                  Is this an Internal or External connection problem? If External, check that your ISP allows Port 21 transfers.
                  1 1 was a racehorse.
                  2 2 was 1 2.

                    thanks for the hyperlink, but i don't have a ip filter icon, nor do i have a filter put in place.

                    biggles, i get the welcome message, so i am assuming it's internal?

                      Ok, poorly worded post from me.

                      Are you trying to access the FTP Server from a workstation on an Internal network or are you trying to access the FTP Server from a machine that is Outside your network. eg. You are at home and you are trying to connect to your work's FTP Server?

                      Have you tried using a different FTP Client? Total Commander (Shareware app) has a really simple inbuilt one that never seems to fail to connect (well for me). The idea of using a different Client, especially a really basic one, is to see if you have a setting on Filezilla that is causing an issue.

                      Have you checked the Filezilla logs for any errors that may pinpoint the problem? It seems are reading your first post the FTP connections works using a web browser but Filezilla client is causing a problem. Hence, try a different client.
