Can't connect to DreamHost through FileZilla

Hello,

I’m having issues trying to connect to DreamHost via FileZilla, this is what it shows:

Status: Resolving address of ftp.josueavitia.com
Status: Connecting to 173.236.186.229:21…
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message…
Response: 220 DreamHost FTP Server
Command: AUTH TLS
Error: Connection timed out after 20 seconds of inactivity
Error: Could not connect to server
Status: Waiting to retry…
Status: Resolving address of ftp.josueavitia.com

Thank you!

can I just confirm the hostname you are using is http://ftp.josueavitia.com ?
If so get rid of the http part, it should just be ftp.josueavitia.com

Another cause might be a trailing ‘blank space’ in a password, or username.

Thanks for the reply Monjo, the ftp has no http:// when loggining in, also verified and no blank spaces in username or password, this is the first time that has happen to me.

Are you using the Site Manager, or are you entering the host, username, and password each time you try to log in?

Hi kjodle, I’m using the Site manager

On the General tab, make sure you have selected the appropriate protocol (FTP or SFTP) as you have set up for your DreamHost user. (I highly recommend SFTP.)

Logon Type: Normal (username + password).

For “Default remote directory” (in the Advanced tab) you should have something like this:

/home/username/yoursite.net

These are the settings that work for me with FileZilla, so they should probably work for you, unless you have done something different with your site setup.
