SFTP Hangs? 26-05-2005 06:16
I just installed the software today and I've been running into a problem.

The regular FTP works great and I haven't started playing with virtual directories yet because if all I wanted was FTP I could just stick with the Windows FTP server. The problem is that I can't connect properly to the SFTP server with FileZilla. (I tried it with WinSCP and it worked properly, however, the preference of me and the people that would access my server is FileZilla).

Here's the output I get:

Status: Connecting to XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:22 ...
Status: Connected with XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:22. Waiting for welcome message...
Response: SSH-2.0-WeOnlyDo-wodFTPD 2.1.5.88
Error: Timeout detected!
Error: Unable to connect!

I have Windows Firewall turned off and anything I can think of that tries to block ports turned off. I did create a user account with a password and allowed it to have access to both FTP and SFTP.

If there's any quick tricks or anything that you guys could tell me that'd be awesome. I think the error is in that FileZilla is not retrieving the SFTP Keys but I don't know how to correct that. (I've looked around but to no avail.)

Hi Chaos,

We tried to duplicate the behavior you described, but no luck. We would appreciate if you'd do something to help us to resolve this problem as quickly as possible. Open FileZilla, go to "Edit->Settings...", then go to "Debug" in newly opened dialog window (last option in the tree). Click on "Trace messages from the ftp engine". Now try to connect to freeFTPd again and look at the log window. Paste that log here so we can look at it (if you prefer, you can email to us).

I just figured it out, I was getting the output ready to paste when I decided to try it, but now that it's solved I don't think you still need the output.
I thought that FileZilla would assume that FTP connections sent over port 22 were automatically SFTP and when I input the address I just used the IP. By putting sftp:// before the IP address it connected succesfully. Sorry for the confusion.
