    Can you elaborate??  The above sentence doesn't make any sense.

    by: is the loopback address of your network card. Find your host file, usually c:winnt\system32\drivers\etc and open it with notepad. Make sure your ftp server isn't listed against the address.

    in addition to the above comments...

    What FTP DNS name are you pinging?

    I would also make sure there was not a proxy server somewhere interfering.  So, you are trying to ping the DNS name of an ftp site...correct?  If you are doing that, try using the ping -a for example: ping -a
