Unable to connect to CuteFTP Server

Hello Experts,

I have just setup a FTP Server using CuteFTP. Whenever I bring up the server I get the error in the image. Can someone let me know why I'm being asked the verification questions in the error log?

Your are not actually starting a Server, rather a Client.  The errors indicate that a connection can not be established to the remote FTP host and suggest a number of things to check to resolve that.  Have you tried them?  Is the FTP server running?  It looks like you have multiple tabs open to that IP address, it may only allow a single connection.

Ahhhhh... thanks Bill for responding. I thought I was starting the Server.

That would explain a lot :-)

I can't find a trial CuteFTP Server to download

I don't believe there is a version of CuteFTP that provides a server, only a client.  GlobalScape does have other enterprise solutions but those are pretty significant in scope and features, may be overkill for what you need, don't know.
