Problems connecting to SSH server via Filezilla

If you try to connect to the SSH server using by entering host username/password and then pressing quickconnect, you may not be able to connect to the server:
Connection attempt failed with "ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server".
Error:    Could not connect to server

This is because you didn't specify this is a SSH connection.
Open File/Site Manager
New site
Enter name

Change the protocol to SFTP.
Enter Host and username/password.

You should be able to log in.
