Trying to copu an account from a server to another server and getting the below errors:

Could not connect to 'domain.tld:2087': Connection refused
The system failed to initiate a remote background package account due to an error: Could not connect to: Could not connect to ':2087': Connection refused
The system failed to package the account on the remote system via API (Application Programming Interface) connection. It will now attempt to package the account via SSH (Secure Shell).

Hi,
If you're using Host Access Control, allow both servers' ssh connections to each other.
Also in your firewall settings, open ssh ports in and out on both servers.

I had the same problem and I was fiddling only with the source server. When I did these on the destination server, it worked.

Thanks! This was just the tip I needed to begin the transfer from my old server.
