SFTP port 222 can not connect. Filezilla and WinSCP can


I'm trying to connect to and SFTP account but fail to login. (Directory Opus 12.7)

I have pasted all settings I'm using in FileZilla of WinSCP - they can connect.
This site is only accessible trough port 222 (not the default 22).

The log says:

I'm VERY sure the password I entered is the correct pasted password.
I'm willing to share pass/user in a DM.

Any hints on how to debug/proceed are welcome. I'd hate it if I have to switch to another FTP client. :slight_smile:


Check there isn't a space at the start or end of the username or password, or what you're pasting into the two field. Some programs may trim either or both of the fields and others may not, which could result in a hard to spot difference.

If the username or password have non-ascii characters then that might also be worth considering, in case there is an encoding issue somewhere (although I'm not aware of any issues there).


I'm trying not to post here unless I'm fairly certain I've checked the basics. And I did with the password... but not the username! :slight_smile: ...It had a space behind it. (sorry)

Nice to see your psychic powers are still working. Thanks for the quick reply.
Problem solved. Case closed.
