>Filezilla is very strict about SSL/TLS support. If the server says it
supports TLS then Filezilla tries to use it and will reject the connection
if it fails. The workaround is to set the connection to use 'Plain FTP' in
Filezilla connection manager. This is probably OK In your setup but the
correct thing to do would be to make sure that openssh is up to date and
configured correctly. There are documents online to test and make
recommendations but I think in your case it would be just an exercise
unless the machine is going to be internet facing.
