Unable to establish FTP connection to Azure FTP Service

It must really been a long time since I try to connect to the FTP for my Microsoft Azure Web App to get access to the files. So I happily downloaded my favourite FTP companion, FileZilla and tried to login with the credentials extracted from Azure Portal. However, I am faced with the following issue as shown in the screen shot below.

It seems like it is trying to connect via TLS with Implicit mode. More explanation on implicit mode can be found here.


On the port textbox, force it to use port 990 and all works like a charm! Back to rock and roll… 🙂
