Updated: 05/05/2017 by Computer Hope

FTPThe 10061 error is caused when the server is refusing the connection.

Connect to an alternate FTP address.

If you can connect to other FTP addresses, it is likely the site generating the error 10061 is refusing to accept your connection because of security privileges or because it is not an FTP server.

If you are unable to connect to any address, it is likely an issue with the network or computer configuration.

  1. Ensure that the network configuration settings are properly setup as well as FTP rights.
  2. Verify that the computer and router firewall is properly setup to allow FTP access.
