  • FileZilla wants a warm welcome from IBM i

    I'm trying to get FileZilla to talk to an IBM i system. When I connect from the Site Manager, I see something I've never seen before.

    Status: Resolving address of xxxxxx.xxxxxx.net
    Status: Connecting to 111.111.111.111:23...
    Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
    Error: Connection timed out after 20 seconds of inactivity
    Error: Could not connect to server


    I wondered if someone could tell me what to do.

    Thanks.

    Looks like a configuration problem. I suspect that FileZilla is trying to make an FTP connection and get a welcome message. FTP normally runs on port 21 -- but your log info shows port 23 (Telnet). Telnet does not normally have a welcome message.

    My guess is that someone mistyped the port number.

      Thanks a million, Scott. I didn't notice that. I changed the port to 21 and connected. Thanks again.
