I have a hosting service with Godaddy and want to connect to FTP to transfer files. I am using filezilla client to transfer stuff. However I am having problem that sometimes it connects just fine, sometimes it starts giving these messages:
Status: Connecting to 18.104.22.168:21…
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message…
Response: 220———- Welcome to Pure-FTPd (privsep) (TLS) ———-
Response: 220-You are user number 5 of 500 allowed.
Response: 220-Local time is now 02:44. Server port: 21.
Response: 220-This is a private system – No anonymous login
Response: 220 You will be disconnected after 15 minutes of inactivity.
Command: AUTH TLS
Response: 502 AUTH TLS OK.
Command: AUTH SSL
Error: Could not connect to server
Status: Waiting to retry…
I noticed that sometimes, when it connects to the server it doesn’t do above calls. It just gets to the server and I can transfer files. I am able to understand why it does differently sometimes and different sometimes.
I have all connection strings saved in site manager, so I am not changing anything on my side. It just my lucky day when it connects and I can work with it. Otherwise I have to wait for another day 🙁
I have tried Godaddy help but it’s useless and worst service ever. I searched online too, but couldn’t find any useful tips. Can anyone please help in figuring out what the problem is and how to resolve it?
