Please Make sure you are connecting to an SSH or SFTP server.

This error typically occurs when you are connecting to an FTP/SSL (often called FTPS) server. Please note that FTPS server is not able to communicate using SFTP protocol. For details please visit our Secure FTP, FTP/SSL, SFTP, FTPS, FTP, SCP... What's the difference? knowledge base.

If you are 100% sure that you are connecting to an SFTP server, please make sure that the network traffic is not blocked by a firewall. The error was raised because the client did not receive initial welcome message from the server.

You can use a network analyzer (such as Wireshark) to analyze network traffic.
