Fixed – 421 Sorry, cleartext sessions are not accepted on this server.

I am entering the Host, Username, and Password that I’ve always used in Filezilla – which has worked fine in the past. Today, however, I got the sequence below.

I tried entering ftpes:// in front of my server name in the Host field (suggestion from previous similar posts), but this did not work. I am on a Windows server 2003, using Filezilla 3.8.0.
