Unable to FTP to third party server

I am trying to FTP through to a third part website but I am getting the response FTP forbidden in Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer. I have also tried to connect through the command line and this hasn't been successful either.

When I have tried FTP through the command line I have done a Wireshark packet capture and it shows that my machine sends a SYN packet through to the server, but they packet that is received back is a reset packet. I have tried the connection through a different machine on different domain and it works fine.

The details below are from the Reset packet that I recieved back from the FTP server

47      33.892434      Third party      My Computer      TCP      ftp > ccmad [RST, ACK] Seq=1 Ack=1 Win=64512 Len=6

Are you using a different public IP address when you go from the other PC?

Typically if you receive a RST in response to a SYN the remote system is filtering by IP address and is nicely telling you "go away."
