My account can only connect through SSH and FTP or SFTP, but not both SSH and SFTP under the same user setting.
My account has only ever had one single user with “Shell account access” and “Disallow FTP” is NOT checked. I have tried this with my own domain name and with giancana.dreamhost.com as the connection host. Lately I can only connect through regular FTP while shell access is still enabled.
If I change my user account type to “SFTP”, then I still get the Giancana SSH welcome message in the terminal, but no prompt and the only command that works is “exit”. However SFTP works just fine then. If I leave Filezilla’s settings as they are, change my user account type back to the desired Shell access (still NOT disallowing FTP), confirm with a working SSH prompt, and try to reconnect with Filezilla using SFTP, then once again I get:
I want SSH access and SFTP at the same time, what is wrong with my account? How can I get both secure connections working again?
