Just re-installed ubuntu server on a new hard drive in my mediaserver for Plex. I used to connect the server to FileZilla to upload files but now it wont connect, and I get this error.

Status: Connecting to
Status: Connection attempt failed with "ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server".
Error:  Could not connect to server

I used this YouTube tutorial to help me make it as a friend helped me last time. I entered the command:

sudo apt-get install filezilla

But I still can't connect, is there anything else I should be doing?


This may be an issue in the ports forwarded in your firewall, or with the fact that your server doesn't have a static ip address.
