    d407ugga - I suggest removing the link......

    Its working. Pings good, tracert - good. Opened a good connection for me. Try using another FTP client. But its working with just an anonymous connection.

    A customer was having this type of issue once, and they changed their settings in WS FTP to "passive" mode, and it started working. Perhaps you could try that? Otherwise, it could indeed be a problem with your Internet connectivity...try performing a tracert to that server/domain name.

    Are you entering "" as the hostname to connect to? If so, remove the ftp:// and give it a shot.
