Can't establish FTP connection

I have tried many times to connect to the server address via FTP (with login) as well as Public FTP, using Nemo on Linux Mint 18.1, but I continue to get the error “Please verify your login details”. I also tried connecting from my Windows 10 machine using FileZilla but I received a similar authentication error (530).

I’ve tried removing and re-creating the FTP account as well, but I still get the same error.

I have also tried adding a rule for my firewall to allow communication over the IP address associated with over port 21, but that didn’t change anything either.

Any ideas what’s going on here?

Thanks in advance,


Try to connect from another IP like the mobile data from your smartphone. If this works, you probably got a IP ban.
