Make sure you have started the server on your workspace. You can check so by using netstat -an command

Start the server on your workspace before attempting to connect via client.

it seems that you haven’t started the server
start the server as root and then again try

is your ftp running? start the server. login to ftp

Even without ftp running connections can be made. It is important the server is running

There are many possibilities for the source of this error. I have mentioned a few possibilities
You may have mentioned the wrong port number.
You didn’t start the server before connecting through filezilla
Your Internet Service Provider maybe blocking you from connecting to the server. (This generally happens when you are trying to connect through college wifi)

After starting the ftp server, i am getting this error
