Site5 - Built For Designers & Developers MENU

What causes: “ECONNREFUSED – Connection refused by server”?

When attempting to connect FileZilla FTP with my Site5 domain I get this message: “ECONNREFUSED – Connection refused by server”.

What does this mean?

What are possible causes and solutions?

Answer #1


There could be a few causes to this, but the most likely is an IP block on the server firewall. If you go to and note your IP address, then contact our support team via chat, we can look into this for you, and lift any block that may be in place.
