In case of problems

If you are behind a router or firewall and you can not list the files, enable the passive transfer mode from “Edit> Settings”:

You have to set the number of simultaneous transfers to a maximum of 3. To do this, go to Edit / Settings, then to “Transfer” and set the number of simultaneous transfers to a maximum of 3.
