FTP accounts do not work after FileZilla upgrade

This article describes a problem that occurs after you upgrade FileZilla to version 3.10, and how to resolve it.


Error: Connection timed out
Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing


Resolution

In version 3.10, FileZilla forces TLS encryption on plain FTP connections. This applies both to new sites you create in the Site Manager, as well as any sites you have previously configured.

You can resolve this problem by resetting your accounts to use plain, unencrypted FTP connections. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Start FileZilla.
  2. On the File menu, click Site Manager.
  3. Under Select Entry, click the site.
  4. On the General tab, in the Encryption list box, select Select Required explicit FTP over TLS from dropdown list.
  5. Click OK.

 

When the above steps are complete, click 'Connect' to connect to the server. (You will automatically be connected in your own folder).

Due to different firewalls, some people experience problems with FTP. To fix this problem, try:

    1. Click Edit
    2. Select Settings
    3. Click Passive Mode, which is found underneath Connection in the left hand window. In the Passive mode settings window (right side), click the Use the server's external IP address instead if it is currently not marked. If you connect to our server and get disconnected quickly, this is the solution.
