Error: Could not connect to server

Hi! I’m trying to connect to my site using FileZilla but I couldn’t connect anymore (screenshot-1.png). I think the last time I connected through FileZilla is in July or August this year. FileZilla app in my computer is allowed to communicate through my Windows Firewall (screenshot-4.png). I tried to ping ‘’ and it says ‘Ping request could not find host Please check the name and try again.’ (screenshot-3.png). Please advise on how to fix this. Thank you.


Try to flush the DNS and try!
If you are not able to ping then you can’t connect to server!

May be that URL blocked by your ISP so try using VPN also!!


Probably blocked by your ISP, like @HELPINDIA suggested!

FYI, these are the commands you have to use. Open CMD and run each on by one, internet may get diconnected.

ipconfig /release
impconfig /renew

Sorry its typo!!
You should use

ipconfig /renew

NOTE: Run CMD Run as Administrator!


Thank you @HELPINDIA and @jaikrishna.t for your help. Unfortunately, both (DNS flushing and using VPN) didn’t work. I think my ISP is blocking the app to connect so I’ll try another ISP later on and see if it’s gonna work. Again, thank you for your responses.


You can work around by using the FTP hostname or using the IP address
