WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I've had this setup before with no issues, but a recent OS reinstall to my PC has made it so that I needed to reinstall Filezilla, and now I'm unable to gain access to my WebFaction account via FTP (using the settings below from "https://docs.webfaction.com/user-guide/access.html"). Any ideas as to what the issue could be? Thanks...

Server: server.webfaction.com, where server is your server’s name (such as web310 or dweb89). If your account is only associated with one server, you can also connect to username.webfactional.com, where username is your WebFaction account name.
Connection type: SFTP
Port: 22
Username: your SFTP username (your WebFaction account name), or the username of an additional SFTP account you have created.
Password: your SFTP account’s password.

ERROR MESSAGE:
Status: Waiting to retry...
Status: Connecting to XXXXXX.webfaction.com...
Response: fzSftp started, protocol_version=4
Command: open "XXXXXXXXXX@XXXXX.webfaction.com" 22
Error: Connection timed out after 20 seconds of inactivity
Error: Could not connect to server
