1. Disable the firewall and try again. Might help.
2. Run the native windows command prompt version of ftp (XP has it, I'm not sure about Vista) and connect. This is an example dialog:
ftp> open rtfm.mit.edu
Connected with PENGUIN-LUST.mit.edu.
220 (vsFTPd 1.2.2)
User (PENGUIN-LUST.mit.edu:(none)): anonymous
331 Please specify the password.
Password: <<enter your email address here>>
230 Login successful.
Note all error messages. Post your findings.
When I try to access an ftp server from my computer, I cannot connect. In Firefox, when I try to type an ftp:// address into the address bar, an error appears saying Unable to Connect. Same error in IE. Same error in filezilla.
