PhpStorm 6 - Could not list the contents of folder...


I know this is probably a bug and belongs in the bug tracker, but as the bug tracker seems to be updating right now and not accessible, and i can't work with this issue i'll go along and post it here in the forum.

I just downloaded PhpStorm 6 today, and tried to connect to one of my stored Remote Hosts from before. It worked without a problem before i updated, but now i'm getting the error message "Could not list the contents of folder "ftp://[IP]/"
I tried some more servers, all of which worked before the update, and i get the same error message. I checked if something effed up the connection info, but all of that is correct and works in Filezilla and WinSCP.

Can anyone help me, or do i need to downgrade again?

I'm attaching a log file

Update: I just checked with a friend who updated his PhpStorm too, he has the same problem.

Looks much like If you use firewall, please ensure PhpStorm has permissions. If it has, try to use netsh advfirewall set global StatefulFtp disable or other fixes from

Hello Elena

Thank you! The netsh command fixed this for me.
