Filezilla - Error: Could not connect to server

How can I solve this problem to upload my files

Have you tried using other network like handphone?


I have to admit that until now I have not seen this error “-536870212”

digging a bit on the internet
seems to have something to do with the VPN

/vpn/Common/IPC/UdpTcpTransports_unix.cpp Line: 325 Invoked Function: ::send Return Code: -536870212 (0xE00002BC) Description: unknown

Do you use VPN when trying to connect to FTP?


I only work on a Mac

Sorry for the question, what is it VPN? :flushed:

Maybe it’s a generic error that Unix OS (MAC) returns…

Please make a full error log and paste it here


I also haven’t seen this error before. But all search results point referencing that particular error code point to various issues on Apple devices. The issues range from software bugs to OS issues to network problems, so I have no idea what could be causing this.

A few things you could try:

  • Make sure you’re running the latest version of MacOS and FileZilla.
  • Try a different FTP client (I’ve been told Cyberduck is pretty good).

Thanks for your efforts
