Serious FTP problems...
I cannot connect to one of my sites, and have tried it on multiple PCs and keep getting errors. The error I get from Core FTP LE is "PORT command failed Error loading directory..."
I got my netbook to connect via Windows Explorer, but as soon as I tried transferring files, I got a "The connection with the server was reset" error.
I can FTP to another site just fine.
THanks in advance!

So, i am able to ftp from another location l. Is it possible that my ISP is blocking the port or something?

I've had problems with the PORT command before. It's possible the server computer is behind a firewall - what operating system / server software are you running? If you're using Linux, you may need to create an exception using iptables. If your computer is behind a router there may be a firewall on that. Try configuring the server to use a specific range of ports (they should all be larger than 50000 to avoid conflict with other applications), then open this range of ports in the firewall.
