Since I updated to more recent versions of FileZilla, I’ve been having a terrible time reliably connecting to my account.
If I don’t use SFTP, I get this error about 95% of the time. Note I don’t get this error ALL the time, sometimes it works great. Sometimes, I’ll be able to move between directories and then suddenly start getting the error. It’s
“Error: Disconnected from server: ECONNABORTED - Connection aborted
Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing”
This Filezilla page suggests the error is on Dreamhosts part: http://forum.filezilla-project.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=7688
So I tried some googling and came across this page: http://wiki.dreamhost.com/FileZilla_Setup which suggested I use SecureFTP instead. So I meticulously followed the steps (I think) and now I get this error 100% of the time.
Error: Fatal: unable to initialise SFTP on server: could not connect
Error: Could not connect to server
Status: Waiting to retry…
This error repeats every few seconds. So I am totally stumped. Anyone got any idea how I can use Filezilla to connect to Dreamhost. This is a blocking issue!!
