127.0.0.1 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 127.0.0.1 address.

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

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 www.experts-exchange.com
