I'm using Lenovo A7000's inbuilt application. Everything was fine, but suddenly, I am getting an error while trying to access the default FTP service via WiFi.

Windows PC warning

The folder '' is read-only because the proxy server is not set up to allow full access.

No proxy is set up on WiFi neither on my Android nor Windows PC. And, I am on the same network.

Android WiFi proxy settings

I've verified using another phone, so it's unlikely the Windows problem.

(Moreover, Xender is not working too. When I tap on connect to PC, my computer's browser showed an error unable to connect).

I rebooted and cleared my phone's cache and Dalvik cache via my TWRP recovery and FTP started working.
