Posted October 23, 2014 3.8k views

Hi, I have a VPS with ubuntu, I have connected it, added domain, app, database, changed password to SSH/SFTP.

SSH console works well.

But when I try to connect with Filezilla (I use host:, port 21, protocol SFTP, username serverpilot, password that I changed on ServerPilot panel control) I can’t, I have errors:

Status: Waiting to retry …
Status: Connecting to …
Answer: fzSftp started
Command: open “” 21
Error: Network error: Connection timed out
Error: Unable to connect to server

And I can’t install webmin (I tried to install, on my previous configuration without ServerPilot it worked, with ServerPilot not). doesn’t work (ERRCONNECTIONTIMED_OUT) but webmin is installed well

I can’t upload files, I can’t upload my forum…Please help me!!!!

SFTP listens on port 22, not 21 – try connecting to that port instead. As for webmin not loading, try running sudo netstat -plutn | grep 10000, does that output anything?
