Hi @ZhanatAcademy -

You may find this other post from the Community Questions site helpful in troubleshooting this error.

A Connection refused error typically indicates that the port you're trying to connect to is not open. The post I linked above includes information on how to check the status of FTP over port 21 and SFTP over port 22. It's recommended to connect using SFTP over port 22 as it's a secure protocol.

Our Transfer Files with FileZilla guide also includes a section on connecting to FileZilla using port 22.

I hope this information helps get you pointed in the right direction!
