I have the client (OpenSSH Feature) installed and working on my Win11 laptop connecting to a Win10 VM using FileZilla.

I would suggest that you describe your problem. What you installed, what error messages you get, what troubleshooting steps that you've done, etc.

SOLVED: One of my webhost support guys suggested I change the password, removing any special characters. That did the trick - I'm connected to the server.

Thanks folks!

Installed the latest version of Filezilla on the Win 11 laptop, contacted support at my web host. So far they have been unable to help.

Sounds like a networking problem. Open Powershell.exe and test to see if you can connect to the port.

 Test-NetConnection -ComputerName YourSFTPserver -Port 22 

Temporarily turn the Windows Defender Firewall off to see that is blocking access.

Hello

Thank you for your question and reaching out.

I can understand you wish to Install SFTP on Windows 11.

I am afraid if you can configure an SFTP URL, But you can always use a DNS name/ IP address.
Here's the official Microsoft documentation for setting up an OpenSSH Server on Windows.

Install OpenSSH
