#9804 closed Bug report (rejected)

Error: Critical error: Could not connect to server (yahoo)

Reported by: Tom Nieman Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: authentication Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: Windows 7


Contacted Yahoo support... They indicated they suspect Filezilla has a bug, because they have received many calls this past week where customers are no longer able to FTPS to manage their small business hosting. Suggested contacting Filezilla support... This behavior is the exact same from any of three different servers I have, on three different networks, at 3 separate locations...
Note: I also have another hosting account with different credentials that also will not connect, from any location.

authentication is the same as my mail account, so I have confirmed many times that the account works for mail...

I have the same problem since last Friday

For others that may be having a problem, I found something of a fix (at least for now). A message on the Adobe boards indicated that Yahoo is changing their password requirement. Adding a new user with a password that meets the new requirements solved the issue for them, and for me. I tried just changing the password for my current user ID, but that didn't work. Adding a new user did. Hope it stays that way.

Your solution has worked also for me. Thank you very much. As you said I hope it continue working in the following days.

Not related to FileZilla.
Apparently related to external service.
