How to connect to a localhost?

Hi,

I have a WinSCP portable and I have a test environment on IIS (Windows 10). I wish to simulate a connection to a hosting site on my computer that is localhost. It uses FTP, port: 21, hostname: localhost. Then I see a window for credentials and when I write my username on my computer, I get the error during connection:

No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.
Connection failed.

Can you connect with any other FTP client

So can you just download some? E.g. FileZilla or Cyberduck.
