Is the FTP server NAT'd to a public IP address? If so try connecting to it from the internal IP address when you are on your LAN. Many firewalls will block traffic that goes out the firewall from coming back in. So if the FTP server has an internal address which the firewall NAT's to the public IP address, then the ftptest.org test will work becuase it is completely outside your firewall, however, your PC may not work because it is trying to leave the network to get to a public IP address then come back in via the NAT route. Going to the Internal IP address solves this problem.

  • internal ip address works for me, but my friend who is just out side from my lan couldnt connect to it either – srisar Mar 22 '10 at 16:38
  • also same problem happens to me when i put my apache server online with port 80, my wan address pointing to the router's home page, not my home page in the apache server! – srisar Mar 22 '10 at 16:40
  • @srisar then there is your problem, your port forwarding is not setup in your router properly. – Sam Cogan Mar 22 '10 at 16:54

My first guess would be you are not using passive mode like the test output does. My second would by rules on your firewall not allowing ftp in active or passive mode through.

  • also which firewall r u specifiying, because i have firewall with my AV and also on the router – srisar Mar 22 '10 at 16:35
  • Could be either firewall (I would at least try turning off the AV one first). in the person's client, there should be a Use Passive Mode checkbox somewhere. – Kyle Brandt Mar 22 '10 at 16:40
