Problem

User authentication failed.

HRESULT error: FTPLIB_E_AUTHENTICATION (0x8004310e)
HRESULT error: CONNECTION_E_AUTHENTICATION (0x80044450)

Cause

This error comes from the server. It is not allowing you to login with the provided username and password. The reasons could be an incorrect username/password combination or a problem with the account.

Solution

  • Double check your username/password (e.g. is Caps lock disabled?).
    The username/password information is usually provided by party managing the server. To obtain the correct information or to reset the password, contact the server administrator. 
  • Ensure that you have entered the correct host name.

Once you have obtained the correct information and ensured that everything is in order with the account, open a new connection: menu: File - Connection.
