Filezilla FTP - How to fix connection timed out error

When I tried to connect to my FTP site using FileZilla, it was showing a connection timed out error.

Here is the error I was getting

Error:    Connection timed out after 20 seconds of inactivity
Error:    Could not connect to server

I changed the timed out seconds to 40 seconds from Edit=>Settings => Connection => Timeout in seconds , which will extend the duration where FileZilla will try to reconnect if there is any issues with connection

Change timeout in Filezilla

That step did not help

Filezilla timeout error

Here is How to fix the connection timed out issue while using FileZilla.

1. Open Site manager

open site manager

2. Click on “New site” button
