On my own PC - running XP Pro - I have no problems in connecting to a couple of FTP sites - using Log-Ons and Passwords.
However, a colleague is having problems with his own PC - running XP Home. He can Log In without problems, but the PC then continues for ages with the 'torch' as if it is searching for the site, but nothing displays.
Is it possible that there is a setting that is incorrectly set on his PC?
the problem is probably his/her firewall, try switching it off to see if it helps. its not a good long term solution but will diagnose the problem. if you are using IE try using Passive FTP, (see the advanced tab in Internet Options)
