    have you tried an ftp client
    your firewall may be blocking port 20 and 21 check it

    www.smartftp.com is a great, free FTP client and a good start in troubleshooting.

    This might have something to do with a firewall. Most FTP clients have an option to use PASV (passive) mode, which may get you in... If a firewall is the problem.
