SSL not working

  1. I'm using FileZilla with these instructions

    I get no luck, cannot connect to server. creds are fine, works without SSL.

    NOTE: the link above seems oudated or out of sync with the latest FileZilla. There is no "server type" field, instead it's "Encryption". And even when selecting "explicit FTP over TLS" in there, I still get this:

    Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
    Response: 220-Microsoft FTP Service
    Response: 220 FTP
    Command: AUTH TLS
    Response: 431 Failed to setup secure session.
    Command: AUTH SSL
    Response: 431 Failed to setup secure session.
    Error: Could not connect to server

  2. If you're connecting via FileZilla and having issues (and have version 3.5.3), you should be able to just use the following settings:

    HOST: yourserveraddress
    PROTOCOL: FTP - File Transfer Protocol
    Encryption: Require Explicit FTP over TLS

    Then put your username and password, and it should work. Test it and if still failing, let us know what settings you're using.
