Fast SCP would be using the port 2500
Can you make sure SSH is enabled and started and give a try.. If possible post the error screenshot..
Veeam's free tool FastSCP is not compatible with ESXi 5.5.
Instead you can download and use the FREE version of Veeam Backup & Replication (no license required).
It will provide you the same functionality as FastSCP and more!
You can download it here: http://www.veeam.com/vmware-esx-backup/download.html?ad=downloadpage
Seems that vSphere 5.5 isn’t supported by VB&R yet. However, according to the words of Veeam representative, the patch#2 with the vSphere 5.5. support should be released soon. So, it might be worth waiting a little bit:
All editions of Veeam Backup & Replication (including Veeam Backup Free) now support the latest versions of VMware vSphere (5.5) and Hyper-V (2012 R2).

Does anyone have to installer for this? They make you do some free registration.
If not, I have a email I can use but I prefer not to use it. If I do, Ill upload it to Dropbox and leave a link here.
If you want to use the free software and the payment is to do a quick sign up I dont really see the point in not doing that.
The time you spent posting here would have been enough to get the installer?
I love Veeam and I dont think you should skip the registration if thats what they wish.
Hello everyone! I had the same problem.
This article should help you:
fastscp is not compatible with vsphere 5.5 and upper.
Veeam backup & recovery does not allow you anymore to copy files with free licence of esxi. it says "current licence of esxi version prohibits execution of the requested operation"
while fastscp is able to do that on the same server ( with older esxi < 5.5 ) .
