Unable to connect more than once. Connections unstable
|Reported by:||William Gunn||Owned by:|
|Component version:||Operating system type:||Windows|
|Operating system version:||XP Professional|
I have this problem with most, if not all sites. I am able to connect one time, and after a few minutes, the connection gets dropped. If I attempt to reconnect, I get the following error messages:
Error: Could not read from transfer socket: ECONNRESET - Connection reset by peer
Response: 425 Unable to build data connection: Connection refused
Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing
I called a host called Hostgator technical support, and began to describe the problem, and the tech person basically finished my sentences and described the problem back to me. He said this is a known problem in FileZilla.
There was a new version available - which I installed - but it did not resolve the problem.

This is definitely not a fault in FileZilla. On the contrary, issues like this are often caused by broken servers. You can test your server at http://ftptest.net/
Also, improperly configured routers and/or firewalls have a devastating effect on the reliability of FTP. Please read http://wiki.filezilla-project.org/Network_Configuration for details
Try uninstalling all firewalls and plug your computer directly into you modem, bypassing all routers. The difference will be like night and day.
