How to fix ftp “cleartext sessions are not accepted on this serve” error


Cleartext sessions are not accepted on this serve

“421 Sorry, cleartext sessions are not accepted on this server” means that the server is using “FTP Over Explicit TLS/SSL”. This is a Good Thing.

You might be able to fix it by giving the protocol “ftpes:” instead of “ftp:”:

ftpes://ftp.somesite.com/some_folder

… or …

ftps://ftp.somesite.com/some_folder
