FTP Connection Closed by Remote Client

I have setup an ftp site on II56 (windows 2003 server) with correct permissions but whenever I try to connect I get the error:

Connection closed by remote host.

I have checked with my network team and they say this wouldn't go through the firewall so what could be causing this? Any help greatly appreciated.

In the properties of the ftp site you created, look to the "FTP site connections" box an make sure that it's set to a reasonable number (or set it to unlimited). A setting of 0 does not appear mean unlimited and effective blocks all connections producing the type of error you see.

This is set to unlimited currenty, also I have allowed anonymous access and by default Granted access to all computers.

Found out the answer....

There is a services file in the hosts file location denying access to the ftp ports. I have now removed the entries and it works fine.
