I am unable to connect to the server with filezilla but with winscp I am able to connect. Both filezilla and winscp connect using port 22. Why is filezilla unable to connect to the server?

I am able to connect already. solution: Set timeout = 0 in filezilla. Apparently, my server needs more time to connect therefore setting timeout to 0 will prevent the connection to timeout.
