I am using the ftp_method_nlist to test the connection.
Using this results in a -2 statuscode ( Unsuccessful (invalid URL)). When I change the URL to ftp in stead of sftp I receive a -1 statuscode (Unsuccessful (unknown)). The ftp-statuscode is 0, the description is empty.
With the same url and credentials I can log in to the sftp host using FileZilla, so there seems to be no problem on that side of the connection.
Does anybody know what could be wrong?

The FTP Connector only supports FTP (File Transfer Protocol) and FTPS (File Transfer Protocol over SSL). It does not support SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol).
With that said, if the server works as a regular FTP-server, then your ftp:// attempt should have worked. Whenever the FTP Connector gives a -1 "Unsuccessful Unknown" status code, the details of the error should be logged in the Debug window of the Windows GUI. Please check the Debug window and post a reply with the details of the error for further assistance.
