What Other FTP Clients Could I Use?
Here are a few options for you to consider:
Prevent FTP Blacklisting
As a security precaution against malicous attackers, FatCow's FTP servers will blacklist the IP address of users that have an excessive number of consecutive failed login attempts. This blacklist prevents the user from gaining access into FatCow's FTP servers, even if the user begins using the correct login credentials.
To avoid the risk of being blacklisted, make sure that you keep your FTP client's login credentials up to date. Additionally, we recommend that you limit the number of reconnection attempts inside of your FTP client.
To limit the number of reconnection attempts inside of FileZilla:
- Go to Edit.
- Click on Settings.
- In the window that appears, we recommend that you enter the following settings:
Maximum number of retries: 3
Delay between failed login attempts: 300
