I try to connect to my FTP, but I get this error and can't see my files. I run a Debian 8 server and use VSFTPD for FTP.

my vsftpd.conf has the following line:


Transfer mode in Filezilla is active.

This is the error I get in filezilla:

Status: Disconnected from server
Status: Connecting to {ip}:21...
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Status: Initializing TLS...
Status: Verifying certificate...
Status: TLS connection established.
Status: Server does not support non-ASCII characters.

Error:  Disconnected from server: ECONNABORTED - Connection aborted

This is what I get in my VSFTPD log:
