AWS LightSail Instance, configured With Plesk FTP Timeout

My 2nd question today :rofl:

I just changed my port rules on amazon LightSail, these were working fine before (it was super unsafe with everything exposed)

Is make somehow not using port 21/22 for FTP/SFTP?


Port Rules for reference.
Blurred out ones 100% have nothing to do with this situation.

Am I missing something obvious in the haze of no sleep?

just had 45 scenarios crash out on me :rofl:

Thanks y’all.

Was Lack of sleep, but i think this info might Help the next person so will share.

In My Specific Case

I am using Plesk on AWS LightSail. and forgot to open up the “passive port range” but this information can apply to other hosting setups.

:information_source: heres the default setup for plesk specifically.

it may often be modified in your case depending on your IT department.
