    Hi, recently bought a plug in and play zgemma h.2s box, (fairly new to these boxes)
    i am also a subscriber to a paid service and found out you can ftp a file to the box and use iptv on the box instead of kodi etc...
    i managed to ftp the file into the box no problem but now whenever i tried to connect to my box via filezila i am prompt with the error

    Status: Connecting to
    Status: Connection attempt failed with "ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server".
    Error: Could not connect to server

    i have tried other programs all the same fault,
    also i have tried username ROOT port 21, or user/pass as root, left user empty still the same fault.

    mac pro
    ftp set up on the zgemma...Current Status: Stopped (i cant get it to start, green button. autostart is enabled)

    if anyone has any ideas i am open to trying,
    many thanks for any help

    Reboot everything. Router. Box. Computer

    Are you sure your ip is still the same.


    Are you sure your mac is on the same network as your box.

    your username is root
    password is left blank
    your port isn't needed to be included.

    Thanks for the replies, i have tried restarting everything but the same result,

    i have also tried the suggested user/pass still no luck, starting to think i need to reflash....

    Have you checked to see if the FTP server is running? Menu -> Setup -> System -> Network -> FTP Setup. If it is try stopping it, reboot your box and restarting it to see if that helps.

    Also, use Cyberduck instead of FileZilla as your FTP client

    I had exact same problem with a box not so long back. I tried restarting everything, using different laptops and I had no joy.

    In the end I reflashed the box and it worked straight away. Never got to the bottom of it but the flashing did sort it.

    Are you familiar with SSH? You could log in and force reset the ftp daemon which should sort this issue out.

    Reflashing the box will sort you out

    thanks for the reply if i flash my box, how will i add my line again? as i said it is plug in and play so i dont know my line to re add it,
    would a backup/image backup work?

    i.e back up the box, flash the box, then reinstall the backup to the box...?

    You can give it a go and try to create a back up and the flash it with that back up and see if it works.

    Failing that you can always contact your provider and ask him for the details again

    I would contact your supplier for your line details and start a fresh not using a backup as if your issue is caused by some corrupt setting you'll just copy the issue back to your new setup.
