I have been using eclipse to work on my web sites for a long time. I use the aptana plugin.

Recently, I have been unable to show the contents of my FTP connections. I can still connect to the server, it just can't show the files and folders. I can connect using other FTP clients like FileZilla just fine. It seems to be an eclipse issue. And like I mentioned before, I have always been using eclipse so I'm not sure why all of a sudden I get this error.

The error message it provides says the following:
Fetching directory failed
Fetching directory failed
Read timed out

I have tried:

  • Creating a new workspace
  • Re installing aptana.
  • Connecting to another server. I get the same problem.
  • ftp, ftps, sftp (even though I know I only ever used FTP).
  • active and passive modes (it's normally always on passive).

Here is a log snippet from the console.
