For several days now, I am getting an error on FileZilla. I have no idea what the problem is.

This error always pops up when I access the server to download a file. The error is as follows:

"Error: Network error: Software caused connection abort

Error: File transfer failed after transferring 55,738,368 bytes in 67 seconds

Error: Connection timed out

Error: File transfer failed after transferring 2,916,352 bytes in 139 seconds"


Network error: Software caused connection abort

These instructions explain you how to solve “Network error: Software caused connection abort” for FileZilla (version 3.1.6) for Windows, although other versions are similar:

1. Start the FileZilla program. If it is already running you don’t need to run it again.

2. Click Edit, then Settings in the menu bar. The "FileZilla Options" window will appear.

3. Select Connections, then FTP on the left side.

4. Choose the active option.

After changing everything, click OK. It will close the window. Now try to connect and see if it has solved the problem.

Disable your antivirus to get rid of connection timed out problem.

It's firewall configuration Problem.

If you encounter problems using FileZilla, it is possible that a firewall on your computer or network is interfering with the connection.

Changing the "transfer mode" in the FileZilla settings will usually solve this.
