    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,

    I think it's firewall issues. For the testing purpose can you please try to stop firewall on your server and check it again.

    Does CPanel ship with a firewall?

    @PatrickVeenstra,

    cPanel not bundle with firewall but you can get CSF firewall under cpanel plugins. Check whether CSF installed or not. if so, disable the firewall and access it.

    That's what I thought. Then I don't have it.

    Hello :)

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

    Thank you.
