Hello fellow Techyv people!
I want to know what is blocking the connection to the server in this error.
I have turned off all my firewalls and antivirus programs. Can anyone help me figure this out?
Thanks a lot!
An FTP error occurred – cannot make connection to the host. Server policy requires SSL, try FTPS
Dreamweaver: An FTP Error Occurred
Verify your FTP. If you are connecting to an FTP server, an FTP address, port, login and password is required. A root directory is also required for some server configurations. Information like these are typically supplied by your web hosting service provider. Verify all these information with them. If all the information required are verified and still there is an error, try to log in with another FTP client so you can determine if the FTP server you were using is correct.
Use any installed FTP client or an online solution (like FileZilla). Also, verify whether your SFTP server is supported because Dreamweaver is unable to connect with certain SFTP servers. Check this site for more information, and lastly, select or deselect passive mode.
Passive mode can help resolve FTP issues caused by firewalls preventing the FTP server from opening a connection to your computer. When you use Passive mode, the connection is made from your computer to the server instead.
