Without changing anything, I can no longer ftp or sftp to many of my sites. On one, I couldn't ftp to it so I added shell acess and could sftp to it, but now I can do neither. I've tried adding shell access to others but still can't sftp to them. One error I'm getting is: Cannot initialize SFTP protocol. Is the host running a SFTP server? FTP and SFTP still works on some sites. I've restarted the ftp service and rebooted the server--it doesn't help. Web-ftp works fine. I've also tried different ftp programs (I normally use winscp) but that doesn't help either. One connection timed out after a few seconds--could the time-out have been screwed up somehow? I haven't made any changes or updates to the server when this started happening. I'll probably update to 2.2.21 soon (I have 2.2.9 now) -- would that most likely solve the problem?
