If you haven't changed anything in your FTP-settings in TC for the site, then maybe the administrator of the site has changed something on the server.

If it has to do with MLSD, then you can turn that off in TC:
"Net" -> "FTP-connect" -> mark the site -> "Edit" -> "Advanced" -> clear the "Use MLSD for directory listings (grayed=auto-detect)" option.

Also try using the passive mode if you are not already doing it:
"Net" -> "FTP-connect" -> mark the site -> "Edit" -> "Use passive mode for transfers (like a WWW browser)".

If you have other FTP sites that also suddenly dosn't work in TC - then it is likely that your wcx_ftp.ini file has been corrupted

Please check whether passive mode is enabled in the FTP connection settings (Ctrl+F - Edit). If not, please enable it. TC tries to switch from active to passive mode if connection with active mode fails, but not all servers can handle this. Therefore you would have to enable passive mode manually.

Thank you very much to your both.
The one with the passive mode made it work again. Thanks
