I am having an issue with FileZilla, when I try access my FTP account, I get this:

Status: Connecting to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:xx (Ip adds:port)
Error:  Connection timed out
Error:  Could not connect to server
Status: Waiting to retry...
Status: Connecting to (Ip adds:port)
Error:  Connection timed out
Error:  Could not connect to server

This was working fine till yesterday. It works on another pc, but its not working onn my pc now. I tried disabling Windows Firewall (as I am using Windows 8 OS). Also I completely reinstalled FileZilla, still that didn't do it. Is there anything more I can try?

I was connected to the Internet from another Laptop, with sharing the internet connection. So there was the problem, it had restricted to access the ports. When I connected directly to the Internet the problem was solved.

I had a similar issue. Turned out I was using an incorrect protocol to login to the ftp server. The ftp server was ssh secured. Selecting SFTP option instead of FTP worked for me.

This works if you are having the following error as well

Connection timed out, Hi :) I've been trying to connect to the server but these error keeps on coming, can anybody please help me.

Invalid Credentials. Most of us are going to copy & paste the info from the GoDaddy account to FileZilla to make sure we got it right.

  • Try if you can ping the host.
  • Same issue here, except the QuickConnect bar does not have an FTP/SFTP option. Go into File->Site Manager->New Site and the option is found there.
