If you mean the client is from the internet, yes it can. If you mean the client is in the same internal network as your server, it depends on your router /firewall. If you can't connect the client, you can always add the external DNS name to your internal DNS server and point it to the internal IP address of your FTP server, that way you just 'fool' the clients but they can connect.

Then there must be a problem with the DNS name. Probably Filezilla can't determine the real DNS name, this can be caused by many things. In case you registered a domain, the easiest way is to add an 'A' record on your (external) domain DNS server, pointing to the external IP of your FTP server. Hope this helps.
