I use filezilla so as to access my project's web space at sourceforge.
There is no firewall blocking anything because I can successfully login using the 'sftp' command via a terminal, but I want to use Filezilla, because it is much easier this way to manage your files.
Filezilla used to work fine when I used 11.10, now, when I open Filezilla and fill in the following things:
Host: web.sourceforge.net Username: Username Password: Password Port: 21
And, when I click on the Quickconnect button on the right I immediately get this message:
Status: Resolving address of web.sourceforge.net Status: Connecting to 188.8.131.52:21... Status: Connection attempt failed with "ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server". Error: Could not connect to server Status: Waiting to retry...
When I go to Edit->Network configuration wizard... I am not sure what to do in order to make it work.
I will just mention what are the current settings I have according to what the configuration wizard says when I open it:
Default transfer mode: Passive
Allow fallback to other transfer mode on failure (ticked)
Use the server's external IP address instead
Ask your operating system for the external IP address
Note here: The 3rd option on this page (Get external IP from the following URL) has from default the URL http://ip.filezilla-project.org/ip.php, which, when I open it at my browser, it gives 127.0.0.1 (!) which, obviously, is not correct!
Don't use external IP address on local connections (ticked)
Ask operating system for a port.
5th page: (Test results are the following:)
Connecting to probe.filezilla-project.org Response: 220 FZ router and firewall tester ready USER FileZilla Response: 331 Give any password. PASS 3.5.3 Response: 230 logged on. Checking for correct external IP address IP 192.168.1.254 bjc-bgi-b-cfe Response: 510 Mismatch. Your IP is 6X.X.XXX.XXX, gc-b-cdi-cdh Wrong external IP address Connection closed
It is obvious that the local IP address (192.168.1.254) is being sent to sourceforge, which is totally wrong!
