I am using Filezilla to upload files to my web server. I am under a proxy server of my college. I edited FTP proxy in Filezilla Settings. However, it shows the following error :-

Status: Selected port usually in use by a different protocol.
Status: Connecting to myServerIp:port...
Response:   fzSftp started
Command:    open "prashant@myServerIp" port
Error:  Connection refused
Error:  Could not connect to server

I set the value of host to sftp://myServerIP while connecting to the remote server.

Any help to by-pass my proxy server ?

Does your web server reside under the same network as your Filezilla client? – Trey Mar 20 '13 at 16:34
@Trey No the server is located somewhere else – Prashant Singh Mar 20 '13 at 16:53
