I tried connecting via ftp with filezilla using the ip address of the box ( to upload my webpages for my main domain. I wanted to have my page up before I went "live". This is the response:

Status: Connected with Waiting for welcome message...
Response: 220 FTP Server ready.
Command: USER root
Response: 331 Password required for root.
Command: PASS ********
Response: 530 Login incorrect.
Error: Unable to connect!

I know it's the correct password since I had just logged into the box as root. Somehow, somewhere, it looks as if I don't have the correct username and/or password. I even tried logging in as "admin" for the main user of ispConfig.

I CAN login to ipConfig via so I tried ftps:// and the response:

Status: Connecting to ...
Status: Connected with, negotiating SSL connection...
Error: Can't establish SSL connection
Error: Disconnected from server
Error: Unable to connect!
