Win8.1 - FTP via Swish Not working

Reported by: l2288b@gmail.com Owned by: alamaison
Priority: trivial (barely noticeable) Milestone: 0.9.x Bug sprint
Component: authentication Version: 0.8.2
Keywords: windows8, 8.1 Cc:


I've installed Swish on a PC running Windows 8.1 to access a remote FTP site.
The remote FTP site is secured (Secure FTP Protocol), so I can't access it via Explorer, but I'd need to.

I configure the site as follows:
Label: FTP
Host: ftp.domain.com
Port: 21 (I know Sftp uses the 22, but the first request, if I'm not wrong, it is made on 21)
User: Administrator
Path: / (root)

As I try to connect, explorer start "thinking", and keeps on "thinking" for a long time, without any result.
I deleted and configured the site 5-6 times, but every time same result.

I can connect using the same parameters by Filezilla, for example, so they are correct.

Do you know if there's something I'm missing to let it work? It's a brilliant tool, I used it on my past PCs!!

Thank you in advance,

Are you sure your server is using SFTP, not FTPS? SFTP is unrelated to FTP, whereas FTPS is just a secure version of FTP. SFTP doesn't do a port handover after a 'first request'. That sounds like something FTP might do.

Swish doesn't support FTP or FTPS, just SFTP.
