So, if you have more than 1 antivirus on your computer, make sure to disable them all. You can visit the antivirus website that you are using to find out how to disable it.
Oh yes, disabling the firewall also applies to users MacOS too you know. You can disable Firewall by logging in System Preferences. Then find the menu Security & Privacy. Open tab Firewall and click Turn off the firewall.

Method 2: Changing FTP Port From 21 to 22
Connection refused means there is a connection refusal problem. This could be because you are using the wrong port when connecting to a server with FileZilla. If the server requires or uses SFTP as a condition for the connection, you must change the FTP port from 21 to port 22.
To replace it you simply write down port 22 before executing the connection.
Note: Make sure to edit the Site Manager configuration and change the protocol to SFTP – SSH File Transfer Protocol if you are using port 22.

- External IP address configuration
Next, you will see the External IP address configuration window. In this section, you can choose Get an external IP address from the following URL:
If the column contains no contents, please enter the default value, namely http://ip.filezilla-project.org/ip.php
If the configuration is like the image above, click Continue to continue to the next step.
- Port Range Configuration
You don’t need to make any changes to the Port Range configuration. Just choose according to the default, namely Request an operating system port, because you are not required to use the port specifically. Then click the button Continue.
- Configuration Test

However, to follow this method, you need to make sure that the hosting service you are using supports the feature FTP connection.
FTP server limits the number of active users at the same time. When the connection is full, new users will not be able to establish a connection and will get an error message.
In this case, the new user has to wait until another user leaves the connection. This is done to prevent excessive resource use (usually occurs in shared hosting).
You can check the number of users who are currently connecting via cPanel. Just sign in (join) just go to cPanel then navigate to FTP connection.On features FTP connection, You will see the same number of users currently on the FTP connection that you have. You can also disconnect through that page.
