[Filezilla] ECONNREFUSED Error Ubuntu 18.04


When trying to connect to the remote server using Filezilla to transfer files, sometimes you might experience an ECONNREFUSED Error that means that two computers refused to establish a hand shake. 


Install a vsftpd file/plugin on Ubuntu server and then try to connect again: Type sudo apt-get install vsftpd

If you have permission issues, get access to your server and type: sudo chmod -R 777 FolderName. Remember this is not advisable in production environment.
