SGI IRIX 6.5 with FTP problems.

I have a customer using a SGI IRIX 6.5 system.  They had ftp working on it.  They switched over to a new Internet provider with new a IP address.  When I modified the network configuration and made the cable switch over their ftp clients will connect but they get the following error: execv no such file or directory.  It looks like they are trying to look at the root when they should be looking at their own user directory.  I am not sure what I changed to prevent their access.  I don't know a thing about IRIX or Unix.  I am a Windows/Netware support person.  So I am out of my league here.  

There may be a cabling issue here since their old IT guy did all the cabling and didn't label anything.  I have scheduled a cable guy to go out with me tomorrow to check the direct cable from the IRIX box to the T1 router.  But the ftp client is connecting but just not seeing it's directory so I think something got messed up but I have no idea where to look.

Thanks for your help.

This is not related to cabling change.

It was not related to cabling change.  It has to do with the permissions.  What I did find out is that I could still send a file using the FTP but I could not see the files there in the folder.  So I let it go and they are using it.

This is to firewall...

FTP uses TWO connections, not one to 21/tcp
