    Question ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server

    I was editing my website today and I went to log into the server using Filezilla and I got the following message

    Error: Could not connect to server
    Status: Waiting to retry...
    Status: Resolving address of ftp.cluster010.ovh.net
    Status: Connecting to 213.186.33.207:21...
    Status: Connection attempt failed with "ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server".
    Error: Could not connect to server

    So I thought maybe the server was down. So I e-mailed OVH and they said everything was fine on their end. To check they had actually looked I used net2ftp and I could sign in. However, if I try to log in using Filezilla I still get the same message.

    Can anybody help. I am using a Mac OS X 10.6.8

    Regards, Andy.

    Maybe ask them if your ip is blocked on teh ftp for to many connections or something.

    It's very possible that if you were FTPing recently that your hosting providers firewall blocked your IP. I would contact them and ask them to check for you.

    It might be the filezilla mode settings, you can change between passive and active modes to have another try.
