I think you meant Gary... 

I'm wondering, Gary, are you running a firewall either on your machine or in 
your router? I remember something about Firewalls blocking port 20 or 22 
(don't remember which it is) that is the "DATA" port ftp uses (default) - (I 
think the command port is the 21, with 20 being the data port, but I could be 
mistaken on this one)

At any rate, if you are using a firewall, you might try disabling it just to 
test it.

There's some really good info about FTP here:
