I have a FTP server running on my Windows XP machine at home and on my laptop I have OpenSUSE 10.2.  The problem comes in that when I try to access the FTP server it will log me in but not show any files or folders and this is the same with my web hosting FTP Server which also runs Windows.  Can someone tell me if there is a way to make the 2 communicate with each other?  The first person who can describe this in terms that someone who has minimal experience in Linux can understand will get the points.  Thanks in advance!!!!

How are you actually connecting ? ie. which program are you using ? what does the following do when run from a terminal prompt (shell) :

ftp server.name.here.com
{login with your username and password}
ls -al
