Since upgrading to Catalina Beta, FileZilla, Transmit & Finder software fails to connect to the remote host.

FileZilla gives error:

Status:         Connection attempt failed with "EHOSTUNREACH - No route to host", trying next address.
Status:         Connecting to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:21...
Status:         Connection attempt failed with "EHOSTUNREACH - No route to host".

The same credentials work on Macs with Mojave 10.14.4.

The Firewall on the Catalina Beta is not on.

How do I get FTP working on Catalina Beta?

  • "all FTP software" what specific software? If its an App you may need to wait for the developer to update it for compatibility with Catalina. I can tell you that I have had success connecting to FTP with Finder > Go > Connect To Server – JBis Aug 22 at 3:28
  • Sry, FileZilla & Transmit fail to connect. Finder fails to connect also. – Insight Aug 22 at 5:01
  • Can you ping the host in question? Can you run telnet HOST 21 and get through? – nohillside Aug 22 at 5:13
  • I can ping the host in question. I can't install telnet because I can't install homebrew, because Terminal can't connect to github. – Insight Aug 23 at 4:35
  • I don't have an answer yet. This seems to be a larger issue. I have added to this forum on the Apple Developer website: forums.developer.apple.com/thread/125519. This issue may also be affecting npm transactions. – zpeters Nov 7 at 22:05

Safari was slow also.

Checking network settings, I see a hide.me VPN active.

Disabling this resolved the issue.

No idea how the VPN got installed.
