Filezilla can not transfer files anymore

April 2018


I recently changed version of Filezilla. With the previous I could connect to the server and make transfers without worry but since the upgrade, I can connect to the server.
Error: Unable to connect to server (Error 530: account is already in use)


  • File > Site Manager > Transfer Settings > tranfer mode (Passive) and check the "Limit number of simultaneous connections" and put "1".

Thanks to Curtis Hayes for this tip.
