Vista FTP Major Issues Please Help!

Okay I'm extremely frustrated with this situation. I've called my ISP, computer manufacturer and hosting provider and so far I haven't been able to come up with an answer. I'm having an issue with FTP and I'm using FileZilla. No matter what client I use I can not connect to the server. I've made sure in IE I'm using passive FTP, and I've also made sure that my firewall allows the port through. I'm using a Dell XPS 210 and my ISP is Verizon.

But I'm not connecting to Verizon's website...my website's domain name is Deadmans-Domain.com and my hosting is through godaddy.

Oh OK, sorry

In reply to: ...

Thought I read it was through Verizon.

So you're typing in your domainname.com or are you typing ftp.domainname.com?

~Sovereign

PS: If neither of them works, have you tried contacting godaddy about this? It seems to be an issue with them.

Oh yessss lol

In reply to: Oh OK, sorry

Yes I have and I have contacted godaddy...my internet service provider...and my computer manufacturer and they all have not been able to help me. Supposedely it's something on my end that's preventing me from using FTP
