Filezilla server wont allow me to connect to it

Hello there,

I have setup a filezilla server on my PC and the local IP on my PC is 192.168.1.123. The filezilla server is listening on port 2020. I added a inbound rule in my firewall to allow TCP on port 2020. Now I start the server using localhost and default port 14147 and then when i open a browser and enter the IP in the browser like so ftp;//192.168.1.123:2020 or ftp://localhost:2020/. the browser does not show me the login window to connect to the ftp folder i setup. I get Unable to connect in my browser. What am i missing,please help.

cheers

Hello,

I recommend you to go through the following article to cross-check if all is good.

https://wiki.filezilla-project.org/Network_Configuration

Which browser you are using? If you are using IE then make sure to check "Use passive FTP" from Advanced  tab.

You may have to select "Retrieve external IP address from..." under Passive Mode Settings from the filezilla settings.

Hope this helps.
