I suddenly get using FileZilla: Connection attempt failed with "ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server" when trying to connect using FTP. SFTP does work as expected. Did something change lately in CPanel?

Hello :)

Try installing a third-party firewall management utility such as CSF to see if the issue persists after it's enabled.

Thank you.
