how to access a file with filezilla?

I can go with MidnightCommander into / (an USB storage on my home router).
For the reason, MC is a bit hardcore for use from other family members, I wanted to use filezilla.

But: how to access the same directory with filefilla (instead of MC which is working)?

the is recognized.. not the "SanDisk-Cruzer-01". with the "hostname" in filezilla comes following messages

Status: Resolving address of
Status: Connecting to
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Status: Initializing TLS...
Status: Verifying certificate...
Status: TLS connection established.
Status: Logged in
Status: Retrieving directory listing of "/SanDisk-Cruzer-01"...
Command: CWD /SanDisk-Cruzer-01
Response: 250 CWD command successful.
Command: TYPE I
Response: 200 Type set to I.
Command: PASV
Response: 227 Entering Passive Mode (192,168,178,1,8,13)
Command: LIST
Response: 150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for '/bin/ls -lgA'.
Response: 226 Transfer complete.
Error: GnuTLS error -110 in gnutls_record_recv: The TLS connection was non-properly terminated.
Status: Server did not properly shut down TLS connection
Error: Could not read from transfer socket: ECONNABORTED - Connection aborted
Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing
Any advise how to solve the issue in filezilla is welcome (for my other family members: target is exchange files between the PCs at home via the USB storage on the home router. with filezilla).

A very old bug report has this. "a problem with the FileZilla client using Implicit SSL/TLS mode" as an assumption. https://webcache.googleusercontent.c...nt=firefox-b-1

I might be tempted to use other means to access ftp locally like a file browser or even firefox if you can't figure out why filezilla is doing that. Suspect that you could change the ssl tsl mode maybe to another and test or other ftp program.

Filezilla is buggy.
I just putted the "" address in nautilus (standard debian file manager), or pcmanfm, in the "network" of the file manager, and the access is possible! Then I put the location into "favorite", and now I have what I wanted.
