I cannot connect to SFTP server, CentOS

I have my own SFTP server installed on Centos.
I could connect via Putty and filezilla  through port 22.
But I cannot connect to the server via Filezilla since yesterday.
Strange thing is I can connect to it via Putty.

I restart sshd and the server but still cannot.
Any suggestions?
Thank you in advance.

No problem with Putty and FTP. With root and any other account.

Hi,

Set up your SFTP client.
If you are using Filezilla:

a. Open the program.
b. Click on Edit.
c. Click on Settings.
d. Open Connection tree.
e. Click on SFTP settings.
f. Leave Use Compression as default.
g. Choose to Use SSH2 (a more secure SSH connection).
h. Click OK.

i. Click on File.
j. Click on File Manager.
k. Click on New Site.
l. Enter your server SSH IP address in Host.
m. Choose SSH2 for ServerType - the port number should be 22.
n. Change the port number if you have a custom one for SSH.
o. Choose Normal for LogonType.
p. Enter your SSH username and password.
q. Click on Save and Exit.

Done! Try connecting to your server now via SSH2 using your SFTP client by clicking on the connect icon on the toolbar (most left). It should work. If it doesn't, check your Host SSH IP address again, Port number, Username and Password. Remember, it's the same settings as your SSH client (e.g. PUTTY).

Cheers,
MS
