I am facing a strange problem. The FTP on my Plesk VPS is not working. Whenever I try to connect, FileZilla FTP client says:
Status: Resolving address of xxxxxxxxxxxxx.com
Status: Connecting to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:21...
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Error: Could not connect to server
So, it's not even going to the step of asking username/password. So, it's something else.
The SFTP on port 22 is working fine. Also, I can successfully do shell access and run commands.
But, I NEED FTP access too on port 21. I have searched everywhere but can not find any setting to enable it. This is the Plesk version info:
Parallels Plesk Panel version 9.5.2
Operating system Linux 18.104.22.168-57.fc8
CPU GenuineIntel, Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz
Any help is appreciated.
The firewall is not blocking it. I have checked it on server and there are absolutely no blocking rule. Firewall states:
All incoming/outgoing connections are accepted on FTP
And on client-side (my PC), I can connect to other FTP servers so this is not an issue in my PC's firewall. Moreover, I can not even connect to the FTP from online FTP clients like net2ftp.
