    Hello

    I need help with filezilla or my server. The server is running ubuntu 14.04 and filezilla 3.9.0.6. The server is on the LAN network and I dont have a domain name for it. I keep getting the error I have checked windows firewall.

    Status: Connecting to 192.168.1.86:21...
    Status: Connection attempt failed with "ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server".
    Error: Could not connect to server

    Either there is no FTP server running at that address or some firewall is preventing the connection. If the former then take a look at this

    i am not very familiar with Ubuntu FTP processing - especially LAMP. But I'm hoping that this link will give you insight (Section 9. Networking)
