First off... you HAVE to have puTTY installed on your windows PC.
In Filezilla, add your ISPConfig server in Site Manager.
Under Servertype: choose SFTP using SSH2
Then use your ISPConfig user that is configured, e.g. webx_username and the password you assigned to this user.
I got connected and am now happily using if to load files and remove them as well.
Hi Brandon,

this is another solution to upload files to your server but it does not solve the FTP problem because the proftpd daemon is not envolved at all when uploading files in sftp mode. Maybe falko has an idea what might be wrong with your proftpd installation.
