I would like to upload some files to my .onion website over FTP/SFTP securely however I cannot figure how to connect. Any help?

I have added the following to /etc/tor/torrc:

HiddenServiceDir /var/lib/tor/ftp-service/
HiddenServicePort 21
HiddenServicePort 2000

I also added the SOCKS5 proxy to my Filezilla Connection settings.

After I paste my .onion link in the host field in Filezilla I get the following log:

Connecting to MYONIONLINKHERE.onion through SOCKS5 proxy
Status:         Resolving address of

Error:          Proxy request failed. Reply from proxy: Connection refused
Error:          Could not connect to server
