Please provide more info, like what OS you are running and logs. –  Andrejs Cainikovs Mar 22 '10 at 11:03

Considering everything you mentioned and info from your logs: you are trying to connect to your ftp server via your public address which is not correct. I will not go in details in packet routing and other things, just will tell in simple words:

  • public (WAN) address is for outside world
  • private (LAN) address is for corporate network

So, if you set up your ftp server, just use private address to connect to it, if it resides within your corporate network.
Or, if you really want to connect to it with the same public address, you need to set up routing tables on your router, so it will translate IP's to different addresses (so called NAT).

sorry to disturb you can u tell me how can i setup the NAT? please –  srisar Mar 22 '10 at 11:51
    
This is outside the scope of this question. You can find more info googling for that, as I'm not a pro in this. But I really advise you to forget about this unless you will be running really complicated setup. Personally, I'm running my own server and within corporate network I connect to it with local address. –  Andrejs Cainikovs Mar 22 '10 at 11:58
    
i need to share some files with my friend who is outside of my lan network, –  srisar Mar 22 '10 at 12:06
    
also normal tutorials i saw on net, showing like just find a wan address and add the port 21 to port forwarding and you are good, but why im getting this error!? –  srisar Mar 22 '10 at 12:07
    
You're asking same question many many times... As I said - you are getting this error because you are trying to connect to your WAN address from your local network, while you should use it's local address, and your friend - public address. Your setup is correct at this moment, and it's working. –  Andrejs Cainikovs Mar 22 '10 at 16:37

you can go to your router's set up page, configure every outside connections through port 21, is redirected to your filezilla server. That's called NAT.

ummm, I think this is called "port forwarding", not NAT. –  Fergus Dec 17 '12 at 19:37
