Hello,

since yesterday i’ve been experiencing some strange issues with my droplet. Because of that, I’ve rebuilded my droplet. But, after that i can’t access my VPS from Filezilla. From SSH on terminal it works fine. I can see and control my server. But, when I have to use SFTP, it does not. I’m not show any error messages, but, after 20sec, the connection is closed.

Somebody knows how I could fix it?

Can you share exactly what is output in Filezilla during your connection attempts? Filezilla is quite robust in logging information to it’s console as it connects whether it succeeds or not and while the items listed may not look like an error they may provide information that would be valuable in identifying the source of the problem.
