FTP Login Problems - Connection attempt timed out
« on: June 25, 2015, 21:48:16 PM »
I've already tried the following:
- Switching the active/passive setting
- Restarting my computer (I only tried this because it fixes login issues with Dreamhost)

This is the error log I got when switching to passive.

Should I downgrade FileZilla? If so, which version should I be using?

Just an update...

I downgraded to version 3.10.3 and it seems to connect now but it always times out before the directories are able to load. I'll see if another restart will fix that issue since I had to uninstall 3.11.0.2

EDIT: That didn't help.

Some other people have experience similar issues, which they solved by using an older version of FileZilla.

i know you already tried an older version, which didn't help.

Currently, I am using version 3.7.3, which is working fine for me. Would you be able to try a version around that?

That worked after I switched back to the default transfer settings again.
