Error: Critical error: Could not connect to server (yahoo)
|Reported by:||slumkid||Owned by:|
|Component version:||Operating system type:||Windows|
|Operating system version:||8.1|
I have been unable to connect to my Yahoo server for the last 3 or 4 days. I have checked my password, and it is correct. I installed the latest version of Filezilla today and I ma still getting the same error. I have seen several other tickets reporting this exact problem, and I am reporting this again so that it receives the proper attention. FYI, ISP is Comcast/Xfinity. log below.

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.
