I'm using FTP through filezilla to connect to my site and all of a sudden have received an error from filezilla saying it can't retrieve directory listing. Its not a server issue as far as I and our server management team can see. I have looked at a few things on the net, but they didn't help. Any Ideas?
Windows Vista Ultimate
Service Pack 2
32 Bit OS
Server is Centos OS with Cpanel/WHM installed.
This is the message from filezilla:

Get this message also on a mac, and at two different internet connections also.
I try to switch to active mode instead of passive, but get this message from filezilla.

If all FTP client dont work, then its almost 100% your connection.
Can you try to change some settings in your modem/router you can try to put your local/nat ip into DMZ mode. Open port 21 in your modem/router firewall. DMZ would probally fix it, until you can figure out what it is.
