    Question Cannot connect to ftp server using filezilla or gftp

    Hello!

    I just upgraded from 12.04 beta 1 to 12.04 LTS and I'm configuring things and stuff.

    So, filezilla worked just fine in beta 1, I could connect to web.sourceforge.net using my login and password and edit everything I wanted.

    But now Filezilla outputs an error:
    Code:
    Status:    Resolving address of web.sourceforge.net
    Status:    Connecting to 216.34.181.70:21...
    Status:    Connection attempt failed with "ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server".
    I googled it and I found some suggestions, but none of them worked from me.

    I'm curious to see what causes this error, it hasn't to do so much with Filezilla's configuration, as I tried connecting through nautilus (under File->Connect to Server) and I got an error saying that the connection is refused, like it was using FileZilla.

    I also checked ufw, by giving
    Code:
    sudo ufw status
    but it outputed that it was disabled.

    I also tried using gftp GUI program, and it failed too.

    But still, the thing that gets on my nerves is that command 'ftp' through a terminal does work (!!!)

    Actually, it's not a big deal since the command ftp does the job, but I'd like some GUI so as to do everything much faster.

    Thanks in advance for any answers!

    I did so, but as i said previously, ufw is not enabled, the output of the command
    Code:
    sudo ufw status
    says
    Code:
    Status: Inactive
    But anyway, even with your command, it doesn't work. I repeat, using 'ftp' from a terminal does work!

    Sooo, tell me your thoughts:
    Code:
    alex@MaD-pc:~$ sudo service ufw start
    [sudo] password for alex: 
    start: Job is already running: ufw
    alex@MaD-pc:~$ sudo ufw status
    Status: inactive
    alex@MaD-pc:~$
    Because I have no idea what's going on

    BUMP, please ))))
    It seems so easy but so hard in fact
    Command SFTP works just fine but filezilla does not work
