External Storage via FTP over SSL not working with port number

I’m running 27.1.0 and I’m trying to add external storage via FTP over SSL which gives me the following error:
“ftp_ssl_connect(): php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo for SERVER.COM:PORT failed: Name or service not known”

Without port numbers, it works (technically, but not really in my case, I need that specific port).

What I found out and what I assume is the problem:
When I ssh into the server and type “ftp server.com:port” I get the same message – “Name or service not known”

When I use “ftp server.com port” however, I get the connection.

So now I’m wondering what to do with my very basic coding skills. Can I change a line of code somewhere so that my NC installation will use the ftp command without colon?

I hope someone can help! :slight_smile:

I found a solution!
