FTP Will Not Connect using FileZilla

I have recently not been able to connect with my FTP client.

It tries, but gets an error ......... Here is a snippet from the log window

Response:	220-This is a private system - No anonymous login
Response:	220 You will be disconnected after 3 minutes of inactivity.
Command:	AUTH TLS
Response:	234 AUTH TLS OK.
Status:	        Initializing TLS...
Error:	        GnuTLS error -15: An unexpected TLS packet was received.
Status:   	Connection attempt failed with "ECONNABORTED - Connection aborted".
Error: 	        Could not connect to server

Any ideas why? Or what the fix might be.

Thank you.

Hey there @Tempus.


Do you typically connect using your Domain name as the hostname? If so, try your IP address instead and see if that works.

Thanks for the idea's so far, but they have no change in the connection.


I had the same issue. Had to turn off TLS in Filezilla and use basic ftp. Setting is in site manager
