Description (last modified by Tim Kosse)

Getting the below error while doing ftp to server on port#990.
If i do ftp with server name for ex- abc.example.com over 990 port, if fails with below error.
However, if i do ftp with real IP address on port-990, it works fine.

This issue is coming only in new FileZilla 3.8.0 version.
With Older version 3.7*, it works fine.

Check the server logs why the alert was being sent and fix the server-side problem. Most likely strong cryptographic algorithms are needlessly disabled on the server.
