I connect to localhost with Filzilla Server using ftps.. but when i try to connect to a remote host i got the connection timeout error.. i can see it never go out of my network...

part of the code is...
         try
            {
                int reply;
                InetAddress servidor = InetAddress.getByName(server);
                String algo = servidor.getHostAddress();
                  System.out.println("Trying to Connect to " + server + ". IP:" + algo);
                ftps.connect(servidor);
                System.out.println("Connected to " + server + ".");
                 // After connection attempt, you should check the reply code to verify
                // success.
                reply = ftps.getReplyCode();
                ftps.execPROT("P");
                if (!FTPReply.isPositiveCompletion(reply))
                {
                    ftps.disconnect();
                    System.err.println("FTP server refused connection.");
                    System.exit(1);
                }
            }
            catch (IOException e)
            {
                if (ftps.isConnected())
                {
                    try
                    {
                        ftps.disconnect();
                    }
                    catch (IOException f)
                    {
                        // do nothing
                    }
                }
                System.err.println("Could not connect to server.");
                e.printStackTrace();
                System.exit(1);
            }
