    Recently I've been having trouble with the FTP function in cPanel.
    I'm using Filezilla FTP client to connect.
    I believe I have all my account info typed in correctly as it shows the welcome message. But as soon as it shows the welcome message, i get dieconnected.
    Anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this?

    Thanks in advance.

    I would try toggling the passive mode option in the FTP client software configuration.

    If a firewall is in-use, try temporarily disabling the firewall to see if access is restored to normal.

    This does sound like failure to use "Passive Mode" issue here ....

    Aside from enabling it in your FTP program, you may also want to check the FTP server and make sure it's setup to allow passive mode as well.

    Edit your /etc/pure-ftpd.conf file ...

    Look for "PassivePortRange" and uncomment the line

    Restart your Pure-FTPd (FTP Server) service

    If running a firewall may need to open up the same port range
