    Check your firewall rules. Client is enting passive mode, so more ports than just 21 are needed.

    I had the same problem with Filezilla.
    Even with the firewall disabled it wouldn't work.
    Luckely I read in an other post that it works well with WinSCP. And indeed I was able to connect without any problems.
  9. Yes try to use WinSCp, I also use it for everything.. ssh sftp ftp etc.
    If you rent a server from some hoster, check if you need to configure anything in the firewall there.

    After no success with FileZilla, I tried WinSCP. WinSCP did connect with my ISPconfig 3.1 system, but it's default is NOT to use encryption and sends passwords as plain text. If I turn on "use TLS" on port 21 it fails the same way as FileZilla fails.
    Questions: How to get ISPconfig FTP working with TLS encryption?

    Just follow the perfect server guide, it configures pure-ftpd for TLS. So if it does not work on your server, redo all the steps from perfect server tutorial and recreate the SSL cert for pure-ftpd. If this stll does not help, check the syslog and pure-ftpd log files.
