FTP Hangs on Get

I had several batch scripts that were working fine on a Win2003 server. I just moved them to Win2008, and they are hanging. Here is one:
Here is the .bat:

@echo off
if exist test.log del test.log > NUL
if exist file.zip del price.zip > NUL
if exist file.txt del price.txt > NUL
CD C:\
echo Starting download...
ftp -s:C:\ftpsrc.txt > NUL
echo Files downloaded successfully
goto EXIT
echo Errors downloading file
goto EXIT

Here is the ftpsrc.txt:
open ftpsecure.source.com
cd /here/us/folder
get file.zip <--Hangs here. (200:Port command successful; 150 Opening BINARY mode for file.zip( 880000 bytes)

It would make sense that this is something related to the new server, but I can't figure it out. It tried running as admin and manually entering the script to no avail
