filezilla ftp not working from within LAN

Last Modified: 2013-12-09
I am trying to ftp to filezilla server running on one computer w/ windows 7 from another computer that is windows 7.

On the filezilla computer, to test it, I pulled up the windows command line ftp and am able to successfully login.

On another computer in the LAN, I can ping the filezilla computer, but I can't run the same ftp test.

Everything is behind the router/firewall. I have also added filezilla server executable to be allowed on port 21 in the windows firewall.

I've never had trouble with such a simple issue before. Any suggestions getting ftp to work?
