Topic "Connection failed"

I get this error message:
The requested name is valid, but no data of the requested type was found.
Connection failed.

It's my first time using a new server. I checked in documentation but I didn't see anything that looked like the error message I got. If it is already in documentation and I just missed it, I apologize.

Looks like your local machine cannot resolve host name (domain name). If it is indeed a very new server (new domain name), if may take few hours before the name propagates to your DNS server. You may try to connect using IP address meanwhile.

I've got this problem too, but it seems to work with online FTP and such, but not from my machine! It's run off l4rge.com

It's me again, hate to be a hater, but I tried another FTP client and all was well. Don't know why, maybe it's my server rejecting WinSCP.

Maybe this FAQ would help.

Got thesame problem. Firewall completely disabled, still can't get in, even though I can with Opera, Internet Explorer and Windows explorer. Didn't have this issue with a previous version of WinSCP.

I'm using the correct protocol, using the correct port, and there's nothing I need a proxy for here.
I really like WinSCP, since it's got everything I need, ftp and ssh etc, but this is kinda a killer for me. Guess It's back to putty and a diff. ftp client for me.

Please post a log file both from WinSCP and PuTTY (supposing you can connect with it).

Hi Martin,

I am having a similar problem, I cannot access my servers for ftp with WinSCP (or any other ftp) I have Windows Firewall disabled, and using a Belkin F5D8230-4 v2 Router.
The connection and ISP are new and I was able to connect at a friends (using different router but same ISP)

I saw that you were helping someone else here and hope you could point me in the right direction.

dik moc!

I had the same symptom. Make sure your address does not contain ftp://

For others having this problem, make sure the ftp name is just the name:
name.xxxx.com
No ftp://
and no / at the end

I'm another one who fell in the trap of pasting full ftp address (including ftp://) that someone sent to me. Martin, I was wondering if you could consider one of two things:
- parsing the address and trimming the leading protocol denominator automatically, or
- parsing the address and based on protocol name (if present), set the protocol combo box.

What do you think?

I can't connect to my FTP server but another FTP clients works without problem.
If I start Login I see: "Connected with XXX. Waiting for welcome message..."
After Timeout I get error message:
"Timeout detected.
Connection failed.
--------- Welcome to Pure-FTPd [TLS] ----------
You are user number 1 of 10 allowed.
Local time is now 09:46. Server port: 21.
This server supports FXP transfers
You will be disconnected after 5 minutes of inactivity."

Because my ftp server is behind firewall I assign it to DMZ zone, but problem persist.

Could you help me please?

Please start a new thread and attach a complete log file using both WinSCP and the other FTP client.
