    WinSCP can connect but not filezilla

    Okay so I have a Fedora dedicated server, I can access it from putty and WinSCP, now I'm a noob whose learning linux, but I got tired of the fact that i cant queue files to upload the server via WinSCP - (maybe its possible I dunno how). Anyways when I tried to connect to the server via filezilla it rejects me.

    any clues as to why?

    Are you using sftp on the filezilla client? I think by default filezilla uses ftp, which would require an ftp server to be set up and configured properly on your fedora box, and you would need to allow ftp connections through your firewall.

    I don't own a windows box, but filezilla on my fedora system automatically switches to sftp when you specify port 22 (ssh) in the quick connect options

    If you are using sftp, it should go over port 22 (ssh) -- like winscp
    If you are using ftp, you need an active ftp server like vsftp.
    If you are nervous about configuring your iptables rules, you should be able to use the following commands to assist:
    system-config-firewall --Graphical
    system-config-firewall-tui --text user interface
