I want to point out that I've looked in other posts, and I did all the things recommended by so many problem solvers....

And here are the facts:

  1. It was working fine until a couple of days ago. Nothing changed.
  2. I tried changing passwords.
  3. I've added a new user in my hosting FTP User Management.
  4. I tried adding the domain name after the user name with @ in between them. I also tried without.
  5. I tried the domain name as hostname, and also the IP Address.
  6. I CAN connect with WS_FTP Client to my hosting.
  8. I LOVE FileZilla.
  9. HELP!!!

Were you able to correct the problem and connect again?

If not, could you please attach the complete log file to the ticket?
Did you update FileZilla or is it the same version has previously when is was working?

At the end, it was a problem with the hosting provider, although at the beginning, they said they didn't see any problem on their side. That, plus the fact that I was able to connect with WS_FTP, got me to write this post.

At a later point WS_FTP was also unable to connect, so I called the hosting again. This time I got to someone who was much more intelligent, and checked it thoroughly. After several minutes, he found out some problem, and said they will fix it, and they did.

So at the end, it was not a FileZilla problem.

What still remained a puzzle to me, is how come I connected with WS_FTP for a while and could not connect at the same time with FileZilla... Logic suggests, that if it was a hosting provider problem, both FTP Clients would not work...

Oh well...

Thanks anyway!
